It's the DM, so part of the joy of my day is having fun with their articles. I can't think of a lower priority for the Japanese royal house than order a new tiara with coordinating jewels for someone who does not have more than a decade of duty ahead of her. Soraya may have been happy to let it go to her niece, or she may have sold it back. We don't know if there was a financial arrangement or if it was pure altruism.
Which brings us to what might come of Mako's tiara and jewels? Are they hers, as in personal property that was purchased with private funds? It would have been petty to give Aiko her cousin's tiara, which I'm sure both families would have refused. Personally, I hope we see a photo of Mako doing her grocery shopping in that tiara.
