Almost five years later I have finally found some information about the above tiara. A Belle Epoque piece, it was on display at Humphrey Butler, a London jewellery, in 2013. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find out it's fate after that - whether it remained with them jeweller to be sold later or if purchased by the d'Abo family.One of the groom's other sisters Tatjana d'Abo wore a very lovely pearl and diamond tiara. I think it might be Cartier, since there are some late Belle Epoque tiaras by the firm with a similar shape, but I'm not sure. Any information about the D'Abo family?

A side note: Tatiana d'Abo's late mother-in-law was Lady Ursula Manners (daughter of the
9th Duke of Rutland), who served as a maid of honour to Queen Elizabeth at the 1937 Coronation.
