It has since been proven that this tiara was made by Garrard, not Rundell.

If the tiara was left to Princess Victoria (Queen Alex’s second daughter), who never married, then it’s odds on imo that it (if it was entire at that time) ultimately ended up with the Kents, George and Marina, as Prss Victoria was close to them and left them quite a lot of her personal possessions.

As the tiara was very much a mid-Victorian piece (early 1860s) regardless of who made it, and Marina was never seen in it, then it could well have been broken up for either Victoria or Marina and the stones made into fashionable clips, earrings, necklace, bracelets etc in the 1930s. That’s my guess anyway

Quite right. The Hugh Roberts book, The Queen's Diamonds, confirmed that Princess Victoria disposed it off.
