Re: Devonshire tiaras. Perhaps there is a third tiara?

I think that I was mistaken in thinking that the tiara worn by the current Duchess of Devonshire on her wedding day was the same as that worn by Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire at the coronation in 1953. |
While it is difficult to see the details of the tiara worn by the current Duchess on her wedding day clearly in the photo I found, I now feel that it resembles more closely the one worn by Evelyn, Duchess of Devonshire as shown in the video LJ posted. Even so, I don't think the tiara as worn for the 1960s wedding is exactly the same. I think that some of the upper sections of the in between elements have been removed.
I apologise - my photo is not as sharp as that in the video.
The current Duchess on her wedding day.
I think that the tiaras in the two images above are "related" the latter having some changes.
And that they are different from the one worn by Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire in the photo below. It is clearly the same as the one worn at the 1953 coronation.
I think that this jewel, worn as a necklace, more closely resembles the tiara worn by the current Duchess at her wedding.
I am perplexed. Hope I have not confused others and that some, with keener eyes than mine, will be able to make sense of all the images.
