It seems that the Duchess was not wearing the Honeysuckle tiara at all. To my eye her tiara looks to be the gift from the Duke of Gloucester.
We have seen photos of both Princess Alice and the current Duchess wearing the tiara with emeralds. I thought that the central emerald used in the tiara was a square shape; yet, the gemstone in the photo from the Famous Beauties ball seems more oval shaped.
I wonder if the reporter was correct and perhaps the Duchess had a sapphire which she could use? On the other hand the earrings worn by Princess Alice seem a match for her emerald earrings.
Sadly the brooches at the Duchess' waist and on the back of her dress are not visible.
