: Irene had decided to remove some diamonds
: from the historic Aosta diamond tiara and to
: sell them to get some cash, while managing
: to keep the main elements of the tiara.
That was my first thought too but I just can't get over that the knots themselves are different. They would have had to completely take apart the original tiara down to individual diamonds only to rebuild it in such a similar design.
Also, I didn't mean to imply that the tiara worn by Princess Claude was paste. I agree that the tiara she wore would have been made from real diamonds.
