Are these the Emerald and Small Diamond Tiara's that are rarely seen on the Duchess?

You're correct as to the emerald tiara but the second picture is Princess Alice of Athlone.

It was worn by the Countess of Ulster at her wedding in 2002 (and it's not that small)...

Looks like the Duchess pulled out the beautiful emeralds for the prewedding event of Catherine and William. Has anyone found the pictures online?

The Duchess of Gloucester has a lot of amazing emerald jewelery, a collection that rivals most Queens!

Definitely not while the current Duke and Duchess are still living, but after they die, Alexander will succeed to the Dukedom and have no need for such a large and valuable collection of jewels. At that point, it is very likely they will be auctioned off to raise funds and pay death duties.

The Gloucesters are not rich by any means and the money will be welcome to secure their futures.

As well as pay the death taxes. I believe that was the reason (at least the announced reason) the Kents auctioned off many of their parents' things, and why Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto auctioned off many of Princess Margaret's old possessions. It's unfortunate (I'd really hate to see some of the tiaras leave the royal family) but I think it's the most likely.

A gorgeous piece and combined with the turquoise and diamond necklace, the effect is so regal.

Duchess of Gloucester's Brooch - FOR SALE?

It would appear that a diamond brooch belonging to the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester is to be sold at auction.

LOT 1759
ANOTHER PROPERTY
IMPORTANT ANTIQUE DIAMOND BROOCH, CIRCA 1860

The delicately crafted ribbon brooch centring on an Old Mine-cut diamond weighing approximately 5.00 carats, supporting a fringe of six pear-shaped diamonds together weighing approximately 8.20 carats, to an openwork ribbon set with circular-cut diamonds together weighing approximately 16.00 carats, mounted in silver-topped gold.

Note that the provenance describes this brooch as "formerly from the property of H.R.H. Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, aunt to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II."

Maybe this was sold after the death of Princess Alice, and now the seller has put it up for auction?

What a beautiful crafted brooch; I love these type of knot brooches. Very antique and detailed.
