Yes in the past but these days quite a lot has had to be sold off!

Thanks , my question was for the Past .
The British Nobility was certainly very rich at that time , such huge tiaras ..

One of them was a loan to Lady Churchill and to the Roumanian Crown Princess Wedding whose Mother owns herself a tiara .

Saturday Sparkler: The Londonderry Diamond Tiara | The Court Jeweller

This tiara is breathtaking! The cross necklace is also amazing.

I don't like the cross on the necklace its too large and the necklace looks better without it.

Saturday Sparkler: The Spencer Honeysuckle Tiara | The Court Jeweller

I don't like this tiara. It looks like 2 tiaras together.

The noble ladies had to wear their tiaras when they went to court and they would also wear them to the balls and dinner they organized themselves. And of course the ladies had to don their tiaras for the coronations, one example can be seen here: http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/...psxjmrxics.jpg

Hmmm...The overall design is lovely, but those pearls kind of overtake it. A pity.

Here are picturs of Countess Reine Spencer wearing the jewel as a necklace and as a tiara.

I think the tiara is now part of the Albion collection. Imo it looks better as a necklace. And the pearls would look better if they were more 'inserted' into the structure of the jewel instead of standing out. They looks is if they were popped on as an afterthought.

So I am confused... does this mean the Duchesses of Roxburghe will have no tiaras left to wear?

The late Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe was the divorced first wife of the 9th duke. She was an heiress in her own right and the estate they were writing about was inherited from her own family and has no connection with the dukes of Roxburghe.

The current duke of Roxburghe is descended from the 9th duke's 2nd wife and obviously has no right to the inheritance of the first wife. Afaik the family still has a diamond tiara. At least I have seen pics of the daughter in law wearing one at her wedding.

Lady Rosanagh Innes-Ker, niece of the Duke of Westminster, also wore the Westminster myrtle leaf tiara at her wedding in 2008.

Lady Rosangh is the daughter of the Duke of Roxburghe. So does this mean that the Roxburghes don't have a tiara anymore? Strangly the bride of the eldest son of the duke of Roxburghe, Charlotte Aitken, seems to have worn a diamond tiara at her wedding in 2011:

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Roxburghe Tiaras

Excluding the ruby tiara, I love these tiaras. They are very regal and magnificent. I also love the ruby bracelet.

I guess the name Cartier counts a lot, so the Cartier tiara got the highest bit. But personally I prefer the other diamond tiara. It is much older and decidedly more beautiful imo. It's a pity that there are no pictures of the late Duchess with these baubles.

All three tiaras are regal and magnificent, indeed. Although I am not keen on coloured stones such rubies, sapphires, or emeralds, I have to say that the ruby tiara looks airy delicate.
