Re the gems worn at the concert at the Austrian Legation in 1937. They could be sapphires. It is so difficult to tell in black and white photos, but if they are sapphires then Mrs Greville had 2 remarkably similar tiaras, which is not beyond the realm of possibilities.
: There is also mention of sapphires - the tiara
: and other jewels from the Austrian recital
: could be these!

: I found the description below of a diamond
: ring owned by Mrs Greville.
: Tatler 18 December 1940
: I suspect that this is where the idea of her
: diamond ring being shaped like a playing
: card comes from; however, the article
: actually suggests that the diamond was a
: square shape set on the diagonal as are
: diamonds on playing cards.
: I would be cautious in concluding that the
: diamond ring worn by QEQM was not part of
: Mrs Greville's inheritance as it is likely
: that Mrs Greville might have had several
: diamond rings.
