The Gloucesters have the following tiaras that I know of:

- The Honeysuckle Tiara (can be worn in all-diamond version, or with a pink topaz or an emerald in the middle)
- Princess Marie Louise’s Indian Tiara (my personal favourite from the Gloucester collection)
- The Teck Turquoise Tiara (comes with a matching turquoise parure)
- Princess Alice's Tiara (can be worn with diamonds or emeralds)
- The Gloucester Diamond Bandeau
- Queen Mary's Iveagh Tiara

Gloucester tiaras

2. the "other" diamond tiara - last seen worn by the Countess of Ulster at her wedding in 2002

Has the Duchess ever actually worn the Indian tiara? It looks rather heavy and uncomfortable. Usually she seems to appear in the Honeysuckle or the turquoise tiaras. I thought the Iveagh was a wedding present from the Earl of Iveagh to Alice and Henry. How does Queen Mary get linked to the Iveagh?

The Iveagh tiara was a wedding present to the Duke and Duchess of York who became King George V & Queen Mary.

Yup, it makes me happy to see that in some families the jewels stay in tact. But I fear the next generation will be different

A very impressive collection,but sadly the next generation may not need so many grand pieces.

A beautiful collection of jewelry that can rival some royal houses. I hate to think that many of these pieces might be eventually sold off if there's no need for them and if there are financial difficulties.

I love the diamond bandeaus, with one being worn in the picture by the Countess of Ulster. Lighter weight but still sparkly and elegant. Yes, these people have jewels!

the Duchess of Gloucester is indeed very lucky to think of the amount and variety of the jewels she has - i think she has access to 6 tiaras. If you look at the Belgian royal family they would be lucky to have that number in total between all the ladies.

It will be a shame to see these tiaras being sold off to pay inheritance tax after the Duke's death. His mother had the right idea to pass on the family jewels and tiaras to her son and daughter-in-law when the old Duke of Gloucester died - therefore avoiding a hefty tax thus the collection has remained intact.

Unfortunately, this is likely to happen once Brigitte and Richard have both passed on. The death duties will be substantial and the considerable monies that could be earned from auctioning the jewels are likely to be very tempting as they are far from rich.
