I assume that the pandemic took it's toll. Keeping up an ancient castle is always costly, and with the pandemic stopping income from visitors... I can imagine that this was part of the reason they decided to sell their gorgeous sapphire jewels.

It's amazing how similar the Prussian and the Hohenzollern coronets are. And both families came up with a similar idea to mount the clover elements on a separate tiara frame to make it more wearable in modern days.

I know that Princess Kira wore the Prussian clover tiara in 1962 at the silver wedding anniversary of Queen Juliana. But I wonder how old the Sigmaringen tiara version is. It was first seen in public in 2017. But maybe it is older than that?

I think the last time the coronet Version was worn in 1968 by Angela von Morgen at her Wedding to Prince Ferfried. It was also included it an exhibtion abouit gown at the Castle in 2011 where i have seen it. But that doesn't mean that the tiara Version has existed at that time and perhaps worn to Wedding Ball's from which we didn't get to see pics. The first wife of the present Fürst however seems to have preferred not to wear tiara's as i have seen pics of her attending Ball's without a tiara when other ladies have worn them (for example the 1993 Württemberg/Wied Wedding Ball).

There were two sapphire tiaras in the family at the time of the Fürst's first marriage. So, not wearing a tiara must indeed have been a personal choice of the Fürstin. I agree that it doesn't indicate that the new frame was created after that.

It would have been such a pity to break up the old coronet for good. Maybe the the clover elements were always removable and can easily put back. I hope that they didn't have to break up the coronet in order to reuse the diamonds for the new frame, and then sell of the remaining diamonds and metal.

In the second picture, she is wearing diamond and emerald Hesse-Darmstadt tiara, not to be confused with other diamond and emerald tiara belonging to the Hesse-Kassel line.

In the first picture she is wearing Hesse stars tiara:
