Wow, did I get it right? They already auctioned several jewels of the late Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe, amoung them 3 tiaras. And now they discovered another bank vault of hers with her father's ceremonial jewels and even more tiaras???

According to this article the ceremonial jewels sold for 30.000 EUR. Do they mean the star of the Order of St. Patrick? Because if we talk about the supposed 'trunks filled with tiaras and other family treasures' that some would be nothing.
Viceroy of Ireland’s jewels sold at auction for almost €30,000

I wish I could find more info about the auction. Maybe somebody can help?

I wonder if anything else will turn up?

Anything to do with the now defunct order of St Patrick I guess would be of value seeing as the last surviving knight, Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, died in 1974.

I haven't been able to find more information about this sale. It seems that the auction was not commissioned to one of the big auction houses Christie's or Sotherby's. Isn't that a bit strange? The other auctions of the late Duchess were well publicised beforehand, which might quite help in raising a better price.

Best tiaras & most expensive tiaras in Tatler - Bystander photos - Tatler

I liked both tiaras worn by Caroline, Lady Dalmeny, and Viscountess Grimston's tiara.

Well..I have to go w/Iona, Duchess of Argyll. Not that I'm biased on an ancestral link or anything like that...

The Duchess of Wellington, born Princess Antonia of Prussia, wears an heirloom tiara from her husband's family. She has worn the same tiara on her wedding day: View image: Wellington Antonia

What a pleasant change to have a recent post on this forum about jewels being worn rather than sold.

How awful! Those jewels probably were heirlooms, though the article doesn't really say. But really, it is quite risky to keep your jewels in your bedroom drawers. Especially when you know that the house will be open to the public.

This very thread starts with an oak leaf tiara of the 15th duchess of Norfolk.
Jewels of the British Nobility

Here is another another tiara worn by the 16th duchess at the coronation of QEII in 1953:

Her necklace is also quite nice, but it seems that the Duchess of Norfolk is less bejewelled than many other peeresses at the coronation.

I don't know what happend to their jewels. The 15th duke had no sons but 4 daughters. The current duke is something like a 3rd cousin or so. Maybe these jewels haven't been seen for so long because they were inherited by the daughters?

The Duke of Norfolk is Earl Marshal and hereditary Marshal of England. For most of the last five centuries both the Dukedom and the Earl-Marshalship have been in the hands of the Howard family.

Without knowing the ins and outs of the tiara and other jewels, I'd wager they are with the immediate family and current Duke

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Hesketh Aquamarine Tiara

This tiara is one of my favorite aquamarine tiaras. It's simply exquisite. The color on the stones are divine. The tiara is just breathtaking.

Oh I agree. If there is to be a tiara in my jewel case, I would want to have one that oozes the regal feeling this one does. Too many times I've seen tiaras that only scream "Prom Queen" and that lacks something for me.

Thanks for the link!
The video in the blog entry shows such great diademes. The Hesketh tiara is a bit too square to my taste. The aquamarines are divine, indeed.
