We learned about the Spencer Tiara. However, which Spencer Tiara since there is more than one Spencer Tiara? I am speaking of the Spencer Tiara Lady (Princess) Diana wore on her wedding day.
The Spencer Tiara was a family heirloom. The following narrates the making of it.

I think it’s well known which tiara Diana wore on her wedding day and that it was a Spencer family heirloom.

To get back to the original question and the silly tabloid article, I just pose the question —why would Earl Spencer, Diana’s brother who has I think five daughters, allow a Spencer heirloom to go out of the family? Even if in the future Charles Spencer’s daughters and perhaps granddaughters have no use for this tiara at their weddings, why would he want a non-Spencer to have it? Charlotte will (if the monarchy survives) be a King’s daughter and therefore be loaned several tiaras from the BP vaults in her adult life if she has need of them.

The Spencer tiara won't even go to one of the current earl's daughters, it will go to his eldest son, the next earl. I really doubt that Earl Spencer is currently willing to sell the famous tiara, and it's completely out of the question that he'll gift it away from his own kids.

The Spencer Tiara would not have gotten so much attention if Diana had not worn it on her wedding day.
Why did the Spencer Tiara not get intense publicity when Lady Sarah or Lady Jane Spencer each wore it on their wedding day?

The obvious reply is that neither Sarah nor Jane married the Prince of Wales!

Prince Charles was the key factor. With Lady Diana becoming Princess Diana, the Spencer Tiara sparkled even brighter with more news coverage.

Perhaps Lady Spencer would choose to wear it for the King's coronation?
(provided tiaras are even utilized).

The Countess of Spencer could also decide to wear the Spencer Honeysuckle Tiara to the Coronation.

Princess Diana

Princess Diana's Amethyst Cross sold at Sotherby's auction this week to Kim Khardashian for $197,000. The Daily Mail confirmed the sale with Sotherbys on Wednesday.
Kim has bought a pair of bracelets in the past from Liz Taylor's jewelry auction.
