The central prong has remained with two emeralds. The 2 prongs on either side of the central element have been altered to earrings and at the sides the two final emeralds have been taken of the band and are now worn as prongs.
As a result the tiara looks unbalanced and would look much better with the two inner prongs returned.
I don't know if it were those inner prongs or the two outer emeralds that were added in 1926. The article speaks of on the side of the tiara so that might mean the two smaller rounder emeralds.
