After Charles, 9th Duke of Marlborough and Consuelo divorced in 1921, he went on to marry his mistress, Gladys Deacon. She's seen here wearing the famous 'Russian Beauty Pearl tiara', the only image I've seen of anyone wearing this piece, and it is rumoured that this piece was 'acquired' at some point after the Russian Revolution, then sold on at some point in 1980's after which it was bought by Imelda Marcos. It's still in the Philippines.
