Thank you for the pictures.
I've completely forgotten about those rings. Now I come to think about it, Marie's ring has a ruby as well. Still, Sarah's is by far my favourite.

Princess Margaret's ring was also a ruby (although smaller than Sarah's) surrounded by diamonds. I always thought Sarah's and Diana's (now Catherine's) rings were quite similar except for the center stones being different: similarly large center stones surrounded by diamonds. Of course Sarah's diamonds seemed "pointier" than Diana's but that was just how they were set.

Sarah's ring was not as large as the ring now worn by Catherine.

The earrings of the diamond cluster set were last worn in the early to mid 1990s (just to clarify my last post)
If she got them as a gift during a real tour don't they ultimately belong to the Crown?

If the rubies were gifted during a state tour, they belong to the Crown.

That "rule" is fairly recent, i.e. within the last five years or so. Sarah's rubies, diamonds and tiara belong to her, as they were presented in the 1980s. She can do with them as she pleases, but I'm sure they're being kept for the girls.

If this was the wedding tiara that we're speaking of and a personal gift from the Queen or Andrew, then definitely that belongs to Sarah. As far as the other items, I can't say in light of this 5-year rule.

The rule on gifts is from 2003 I believe. Before that the recipient could do as they pleased....including selling unwanted gifts.

So what do you think? Would Sarah have maybe kept the tiara for her daughters and sell the other jewelry for her debts?

I think Sarah only wore one tiara.What a shame! I know she was not married to an heir,but Sophie got to wear more than one tiara.(Even though some were borrowed).

I would hope the jewels are safe. I think she has always relied on the kindness of strangers (and ex-inlaws) to pay her debts. The tiara would be too recognizable to sell at auction without attracting attention but I suspect some of the other pieces could go on sale as "the property of a lady" if she didn't want attention.

Also if Sarah has any kind of hopes to perhaps remarry Andrew, she would retain any jewelry acquired from her marriage. Perhaps they do have a lot of sentimental value to her and for that reason will keep them to pass on to her daughters when the time comes.

I think the next time we'll see Sarah's tiara is when either Beatrice or Eugenie marry.

I don't think the girls have worn the tiara yet, maybe when they get married.

Yes, I really like her diamond knot necklace. I hope it's still in her collection.

I always thought Sarah's tiara is one really beautiful piece, although perhaps best-suited for younger women.
Personally, I always preferred it to the Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara - Diana's tiara of choice.

The Duchess of York's Tiara.
