    The Devonshire Tiara The Devonshire Tiara; 1893 and 1897. English; diamonds mounted in silver and gold. This tiara was made for the wife of the 8th Duke of Devonshire, Countess Louise von Alten. She was known as the 'Double Duchess' as she had previously been married to the Duke of Manchester. The tiara is designed as a graduated row of thirteen scrolled palmette motifs, alternating with lotus motifs. These can be removed and worn as individual brooches and other ornaments. It is set throughout with cushion-shaped diamonds, many of which were removed from the Devonshire Parure which is displayed in the next cabinet. Taken at Chatsworth House, October 24, 2010.
