According to your link, the rubies were passed on in the female line. So the passed from Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha on to Austria and than to the Thurn und Taxis family. Unfortunately royal-magazin doesn't say who sold them for the first time, but I don't think that it was the SCG family.

Afaik Princess Sibylla didn't receive a tiara from her family, neither as a wedding present nor as inheritance. Her mother grand duchess Victoria Adelaide wore the turquoise parure at Sibylla's pre-wedding ball: http://inlinethumb30.webshots.com/49...600x600Q85.jpg

Those rubies are incredible and would have looked amazing on Kelly or Stephanie! Do you know of any other pieces sold at the same time as the rubies?

But there is no SCG tiara in the Swedish royal family. Maybe you are mixing it up with the Baden fringe tiara currently worn by CP Victoria? But that was obviously a present from the Baden family at the marriage of Princess Victoria of Baden and the then Swedish Crown Prince.

She got the cameo Parure from Prince Eugen, the connaught tiara was an inheritace from Crown Princess Margaretha and the big aquamarine tiara which i believe was a gift from her husband.
And the ruby tiara and set belonged not to the SCG-main branch but the Kohary-branch.

Here is Duchess Helene von Oldenburg wearing the same tiara as Caroline:

She was wearing two tiaras we prior didn't know anything about...I think it was discussed somewhere that one of the tiaras were loaned to her by a noble family(Swedish or Danish-I think)and the other one by some other S-W-Berleburg member,so they are indeed real,but borrowed for the event...

It was said that the floral tiara, which Carina wore at the Joachim & Marie wedding, was borrowed from a Danish friend of Benedikte. IIRC, it was Mary's first lady-in-waiting.
The spiky tiara is said to be a loan from a member of the Berleburg family. Now, I wonder who that could be? Afaik, the relationship with Prince Richard's brother isn't too good.
The fringe tiara of Princess Benedikte originates from the Berleburg family. Is anythink else known about it? Was it ever worn by Prince Richard's mother? Are there pictures of it being worn by any other lady, apart from Benedikte?

The fringe tiara was the posessioon of Prince Richard's grandmother who died in the early 1970's and left it to Prince Richard. Theefore it was never worn by his mother.

It seems that famous Romanones emeralds now became part of "German jewels" as the new owner is Princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn:

One more German tiara:

Adel: Traumhochzeit im Schloss Amerdingen - Nachrichten Nördlingen - Augsburger Allgemeine

Still,it is not known does it belong to Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg family or to Schenk von Stauffenberg family...
