Do you have a link to the press release? I can't find it after a 15 minute search. Thanks.

Thank you, fandesacs2003! So that clarifies what could only be suspected from the unclear pictures.

I wonder if Charlene's wedding hair was some kind of inspiration for Beatrice. Of course she woudln't do exactly the same, so she created a different style of updo.

Beatrice borrowed Caroline's wing brooches for her evening dress

I loved the "Wings" on Beatrice's gown and think how lovely they looked and that Caroline had to be right up with what was to be worn to be able to supply the perfect finishing touch.

However, while we talk about Grimaldi Family Jewels, what jewels are actual Grimaldi jewels and what are Caroline's personal or Hanoverian jewels?

Are there any actual Grimaldi Family Jewels in Alberts little vault?

It is understood the jewels owned by Princess Charlotte de Monaco, Duchesse de Valentinois went to her son Prince Rainier III. And after him to Prince Albert II.

Princess Caroline is the only one whom is regularly seen with the historic jewels (picture). From all these jewels Princess Charlène has only worn the diamond floral wreath diadem as a wrench around her chignon (on her wedding day, see picture), Tatiana Santo Domingo has worn the diamond fringe necklace as a diadem (see picture) and Donna Beatrice Borromeo has worn the diamond wings on her evening dress for the after-wedding festivities.

Why Princess Charlène never wears these items: no idea. Maybe there is a stipulation that only a descendant whom is a Princesse de Monaco can wear these? In that case we may expect Princess Gabriella wearing her great-grandmother's jewels. But why then never Princess Stéphanie with these jewels?

I can't recall when I last saw Princess Stéphanie wearing any jewelry other than her earrings.

It might have to due to the fact Charlene's style is fairly minimalist in terms of jewelry and finds the pieces given to her by her husband sufficient. But who knows, maybe Gabriella or the future Mrs. Jacques will be made in the Queen Maxima school of jewel appreciation and run the vault clean. Simply put it, it's all a matter of taste and of the three major Grimaldi women (Caroline, Stephanie, and Charlene) Caroline appears to be the only one who enjoys wearing the family heirlooms.

It's a pity that only Caroline wears her mother's jewels. Stephanie seems to have absolutely no interest in it. The same goes for Charlotte. Afaik, she has never been seen with any family jewels, not even with small pieces.

I only recall one piece that Grace, Caroline and Charlotte wore: a brooch

Charlotte Casiraghi of course is no royal and does no royal function. I think the jewels are preserved for Princesses of the House of Monaco with some exceptions like the wedding-loans to Tatiana Santo Domingo and Donna Beatrice Borromeo.

Princesse Gabriella de Monaco, Comtesse de Carladès of course can surprise us and go the Máxima-way too. Why not? Just some self-assuredness and know that you can wear these fantastic heirlooms with zest.

I didn't only mean the big stately pieces like the tiaras. Princess Grace had loads of smaller, private jewels, which are also appropriate for her non-royal granddaughters.

So Princess Caroline bought her daughter in law earrings and lent her to brooches, to me that is one generous, kind and welcoming mother in law.

The Grimaldi has 3 Fringe tiara :
Princess Charlotte, large spikes
Princess Caroline , more spikes large and small
Tatania , large and small spikes but different.

Princess Grace wore a loan spike tiara as she did often. Her hairdo was more important for her than the jewels.

She had little choice as the historic jewels were with Princesse Charlotte de Monaco, Duchesse de Valentinois, who reportedly had a poor relationship with Grace.

Do you really think so? I believe it's the same tiara and the differences are because of the blurriness of some of the pictures.
