I always figured it was Semirhage with her eye on an angreal (she was extorting gold and jewelry from merchants - not 'payment' from jewelers).

Of course, it did lend strength to Suroth's eventual plan - to kill Tuon by turning her army against a 'pretender' - but she made that plan after she learned of the rumors. It wasn't Semirhage's plan, because Semirhage pretty much left Suroth on her own to come up with a plan. So the angreal thing is the only thing that really makes sense to me, unless she had need to extort metals to make the copies of the male a'dam. The female a'dam are made of silver; the male ones are 'a form of cuendillar', perhaps made from gold instead of iron?

Still, it seems that Semirhage could have found a better way to steal this stuff than pretending to be Tuon.
