Love this picture of Charlene with her new tiara/necklace on the cover of Point de Vue magazine.

Charlene looks very beautiful and the necklace is gorgeous on her. Something tells me I'm going to like it better that way than as a tiara.

Sadly no, but I have bought previous specials by Point de Vue & have been pleased.

This is great, beautiful earrings! I'd like to know more about Grace's personal jewels (this isn't the right thread, of course). I was just wondering whether she brought fine jewellery with her from the US, that she owned prior to her marriage.

Grace's diamond tiara is just a jaw dropper with all those myriad cut stones and the sheer volume of diamonds. And I've always loved Princess Charlotte's diamond and pearl tiara worn by Caroline. I know there are plenty more of those tiaras rusticating in the vaults that we probably won't be seeing anymore, unfortunately.

Thanks for the link, An Ard Ri!

Princess Charlotte's tiara is my personal favourite of all the Grimaldi jewels,its a pity that Caroline only takes it out once in a blue moon

Who owns the grimaldi family jewelry and who is allowed to wear it?

Anything one wants to speculate:
1) a gift/wedding gift and therefore it belongs to the "historic house of Grimaldi"
2) belonged to Princess Grace or Princess Charlotte, now Prince Albert owns it.
3) Prince Albert purchased it himself.
4) that is just the answer that the press office came up with.

It could not mean:
1) Princess Charlene purchased it for herself
2) a suite of jewels on loan from a jeweler
3) borrowed from Princess Caroline or Princess Stephanie


When Prince Rainier married Grace, there were many pictures of their wedding gifts. This is not the custom today for royal marriages so the public does not really know what kind of gifts that Prince Albert and Princess Charlene received.

I remember seeing a photo of a pearl and ruby suite of jewels that Princess Grace received, designed by Cartier. Later, Princess Grace wore a very similar necklace in diamonds and pearls, also designed by Cartier. It seemed as if she exchanged her wedding gift. No one would have know this if there had not been published pictures of her many gifts of jewelry.

It seems as if the press office in Monaco is more discreet. I don't blame them. The press is all over the Grimaldis and their privacy is compromised all the time.

I really would like to know what jeweler designed it. The earrings are stunning.

Lizanne, her sister said that Grace gave some of her jewelry to her sisters before she married Prince Rainier. I wonder if this was a custom back then. My mother and her sisters did the same thing. If one of them had any jewelry from a previous suitor, that piece of jewelry was given away prior to their marriage.

So I have a question, If Albert marries than does he have to buy a new tiara for his wife? Because we all know Caroline inherited her grandmothers tiara's and she sold Princess Grace's old tiara's so it seems like there wouldn't be any tiara's for Albert's wife, or do you think Grace set aside some jewels for Albert if he ever married? I have no idea, does anyone know?

Well, Albert already is married, and he did buy two new tiaras for his wife Charlne. Besides, Caroline didn't sell any of Grace's tiaras. They are often loaned to exhibitions, but it is not clear to the public if they are owned by Albert or Caroline.

The fact that Charlotte's jewelry belongs to Caroline is just speculation. Her will is not public and it isn't confirmed by the palace.
I read somewhere here that at the Grace exhibition's Charlotte's Cartier tiara was listed as property of the Prince or the House, but not Caroline.

I'm starting to think that Grace's and Charlotte's jewels don't belong to any of the (grand)children, but to the House of Grimaldi. And that the jewels Albert gives Charlene also belong to the House.
I think that's what the palace statement is about.

Antoinette de Merode married Charles III of Monaco. As part of her dowry from her father, Count Werner de Merode, did she not receive a tiara?
