The 13 people who appeared before Nottingham Magistrates' Court on Thursday were aged between 21 and 49 and were from Nottinghamshire, London and Birmingham.

They were charged with various offences linked to the alleged conspiracy and have been bailed conditionally to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 19 November.

The 6th Duke of Portland commissioned Cartier to create the tiara for his wife, Winifred, Duchess of Portland.

She wore the diamond-encrusted headpiece to the coronation of King Edward, the Queen's great-grandfather, in 1902.

The duchess was one of four canopy bearers to Queen Alexandra during the coronation.

The tiara, which had a centrepiece of the Portland Diamond, was flanked by two diamond drops and other pendant diamonds, all set in gold and silver.

The accompanying diamond brooch that was also stolen was composed of diamond clusters that previously stood at the apex of the tiara, but were later repurposed into the pin.
