Perhaps, one of them will be worn by Harriette if and when she does become the wife of the 7th Duke, Hugh?

They have a lovely collection, but only pictured are the wedding tiara that was received by the then new Countess Grosvenor, the leaf tiara worn by Lady Tamara on her wedding day (and an official portrait of the Duchess). The Westminster Halo has also been worn, back when it was originally purchased.

We have yet to see pictures of the Fringe, The Blue Enamel (before sold at auction in 2015), or the Faberge Tiara.

I have never seen this on any of the Northumberland ladies, with the exception of Lady Melissa at her wedding. Are there any pictures of it being worn by anyone else -perhaps Jane, the current Duchess?

The Blue Enamel Tiara must have been so very fragile. They were smart to sell it. Is it in the Japanese collection, or the Qatar one?

I imagine that the Faberge tiara is difficult to wear and delicate.

Yes this is a very beautiful tiara for it looks very delicate and feminine for a lady to wear. I like that large diamond in the center flower, that is gorgeous. And I hope we see it worn someday soon, at a state dinner perhaps.

Has the Duke and Duchess of Bedford ever been to a state dinner? If not - maybe they should start attending

One event we'd definitely see the tiara - at a Coronation
