The Duchess wore the smaller version of the historic sapphire and diamond parure in 1984 and 1985 at least in public.
Unfortunately the historic Cambridge sapphires and diamond set, consist of the sapphire and diamond cluster tiara, the sapphire and diamond choker, the sapphire and diamond earrings, the sapphire and diamond brooch was also sold and is not in the royal family anymore.
When the founder of the jewel house Moira died in November 2020, it came up to the light, the historic smaller parure fragments are owned by her.
Nothing is known about the cluster tiara.

Duchess Louise of Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld, Mother of Prince Albert the consort of Queen Victoria, in her silver wedding gown, when she married in 1817.
„……this afternoon there was great court and dinner.
During the festivities the bridal jewelry of the Duchess Louise was also on public display…. and a poem was written about it. … The princess’s bridal trousseau, whose value is estimated at 100 000 Thlr., was on public display in the castle on the 16th and 17th. Of rare beauty was the massive silver toilet with its golden contents, the velvet and silk richly embroidered dresses, the linen etc………….“
„The magnificent bridal jewelry, which was recently added by the princess aunt Grand Duchess Anna Feodorovna with a splendid brilliant necklace, was particularly outstanding.“
It could be the diamond belt and the border of diamond loops along the neckline. One counts, 17 entwined diamond rings and the other with 15 entwined smaller diamond ornaments.
An example of this, in the picture the link band of seven intertwined rings, set with approx. 722 diamonds in different historical cuts, as Peruzzi cut diamonds, Mazarin, pear shaped. Originally probably part of a tiara, which is also indicated by the mounting holes in the setting, which was sold a few years ago from a German ducal estate.
We see on the portrait of the Duchess Louise:
a diamond necklace with 9 drop pearls is still remarkable, as are the diamond and pearl earrings each with 3 large drop pearls. In addition, a diamond diadem of 14 visibly upright diamond ears and a diamond and pearl comb, behind it.
