Today I've read an article about the theft of the Portland Tiara. They may have found the robbers but not the tiara.They say there is little or no hope to find it , not the entire tiara.

The Stuart Tiara:
This Tiara, with around 900 diamonds and 39.75 carats of them belonging to the massive Stuart Diamond alone. The tiara can be worn as a smaller piece by removing the top bits containing the Stuart Diamond. Its history dates back to Queen Mary II and King William III (Willem III), who was the Prince of Orange when they purchased the enormous Stuart Diamond in 1690 and had it set in a brooch. A long history of back-and-forth between England and the Netherlands ensued and the diamond was turned into a pendant for a necklace, but in 1897, the Stuart Tiara was born when Queen Emma of the Netherlands commissioned the piece for the investiture of her daughter, Queen Wilhelmina. Made in 1897 by Schürmann using diamonds provided by Queen Emma, including the Stuart Diamond. Worn for the first time by Queen Wilhelmina at her investiture in 1898. Now part of the family's jewel foundation. Worn by Queen Wilhelmina, Queen Juliana, and Queen Maxima. Worn as a wedding tiara by Queen Wilhelmina (1901).





The Dutch Diamond Bandeau
A line of mine-cut diamonds, set on a simple platinum frame. Originally part of a necklace given to Queen Emma as a wedding present by the Dutch people in 1879. Converted for use as a tiara in the 1930s and later placed in the family's jewel foundation. Worn by Queen Wilhelmina, Queen Juliana, Queen Beatrix, Princess Margriet, Princess Christina, and Queen Maxima.






The Dutch Diamond Festoon Tiara:
A necklace of five diamond festoons, which are able to be removed from the rest of the necklace, placed on a frame, and worn as a tiara. Made by Vita. Part of a collection of diamond jewels presented to Queen Wilhelmina on her ninth birthday by her father, King Willem III, in 1889. Now part of the family's jewel foundation. Worn as a tiara by Queen Maxima and Princess Margriet.





The Dutch Sapphire Parure Tiara:
A towering, Gothic tiara of diamonds with sapphires set in its base and in the center of the piece, able to be worn in various height settings, and accompanied by coordinating jewels to form a parure. Made in 1881 by Maison van der Stichel. Given to Queen Emma by her husband, King Willem III. Remodeled in 1928 by Van Kempen, who constructed a new frame for the tiara. Now part of the family's jewel foundation. Worn by Queen Emma, Queen Juliana, Queen Beatrix, and Queen Maxima.







The Dutch Star Tiara:
The diamond festoon base of the Pearl Button Tiara topped by five of the ten-pointed diamond stars given to Queen Emma as a wedding present. The base of the tiara was created at an uncertain date; the stars were given to Emma in 1879. Worn by Queen Beatrix, Princess Margriet, and Queen Maxima. Worn as a wedding tiara by Queen Maxima (2002).






The Dutch Ears of Wheat Tiara:
A set of eight diamond and silver brooches in the shape of ears of wheat, able to be placed on a tiara frame in configurations of four, six, or eight, or worn separately. Though made in the early nineteenth-century, the brooches were not placed on a tiara frame until the 1950s. The wheat ears originally belonged to Queen Catherine of Württemberg. Inherited by Queen Sophie and bequeathed to her youngest son, Prince Alexander, in 1879. Inherited by his half-sister, Queen Wilhelmina, in 1884. Now part of the family's jewel foundation. Worn as a tiara by Queen Juliana, Princess Irene, Princess Margriet, Princess Christina, Princess Laurentien, Princess Marilene, Princess Annette, Princess Anita, Princess Aimee, Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma, and Princess Viktoria of Bourbon-Parma. Worn as a wedding tiara by Princess Marilene (1998), Princess Annette (2000), Princess Anita (2005), Princess Aimee (2005), Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma (2001), and Princess Viktoria of Bourbon-Parma (2013).




The Ruby Peacock Tiara:
A diamond and ruby tiara of floral and scroll elements with a detachable diamond and ruby peacock tail element in its center, accompanied by coordinating pieces to form a parure. Made in 1897 by Schürmann, reportedly using rubies that belonged to Queen Sophie. Given personally by Queen Wilhelmina to Princess Irene, but now worn again by the main line of the royal family. Worn by Queen Wilhelmina, Princess Beatrix, Princess Irene, and Queen Maxima.




The Württemberg Ornate Pearl Tiara:
An elaborate diamond and pearl tiara, able to be worn in multiple configurations, with distinctive pear-shaped pearl toppers. Made for Queen Wilhelmina in 1897, possibly by remodeling a tiara that belonged to Queen Sophie. Inherited by Queen Juliana in 1962 and subsequently placed in the family's jewel foundation. Worn by Queen Wilhelmina, Queen Juliana, Queen Beatrix, and Queen Maxima. Worn as a wedding tiara by then Princess Beatrix (1966).




Queen Wilhelmina's Diamond Hair Comb:
A delicate, petite diamond hair ornament featuring a dotted diamond base topped by small diamond clovers. Now part of the family's jewel foundation. Worn by Queen Wilhelmina and Queen Maxima.
