Does anyone have any info on where the pearl and diamond necklace/earrings set Rainier gave Grace when the got engaged went to? I've always been fond of that piece of jewelry, I think it's probably one of the most beautiful pieces Grace has worn. Did it go to Caroline? (who I've never seen wear it) or did it go to Albert for his wife? (who I've never seen wear it).

There really must be some amount of forgotten royal jewels in the Grimaldi jewel chest that have not been seen in a long,long time.That set above are beautiful,shame we know so little of what happened to Princess Grace's jewels after her death.

Where did this tiara go? This is the only time I've seen Princess Grace wore it. I would love to see it again.

The jewels belong to Caroline as the eldest daughter and she was worn many of them for years. Whether she would consider them her personal property, rather than items that return to the Sovereign House is another matter altogether.

My guess is she would ensure they remain with the House.

As Princess of Monaco, shouldnt the jewels have been passed on to Charlene? Perhaps the whole I dont wear jewelry thing is a statement to Caroline who has not handed them over?

HRHAmy it is a diamond emerald tiara. Princess Grace wore it several times, f.ex. at infanta Pilar prewedding gala or at official photoshot when she was older in a purple gown and emerlad flower brooch. Todays it probably stays with Pss Caroline - with the rest of Grace collection.

This tiara is composed entirely of diamonds! If you google "Princess Grace at Infanta Pilar's wedding" you will see photographs of Princess Grace at the event.

Quite right, at Infanta Pilars wedding Princess Grace wore her small diamond tiara with the 5 little arches. It must have been her favourite, I don’t think there was another tiara which the Princess wore nearly as often.

But on the pic which HRHAmy posted above, Princess Grace wears a different tiara with three arches. There’s a large arch in the middle and two smaller arches at the sides. I have only seen this tiara at this particular photo shoot. There are also other shots from it floating around the net, with the Princess in profile, or looking aside. I don’t know if there are emeralds in it, but there is no proof that it ever belonged to Princess Grace. She obviously didn’t mind loaning jewels, and did see a couple of times.

Besides, it is not known how inherited Princess Grace’s jewellery. It is continuously repeated that Caroline did, but there is no hard source for this rumour. It is just repeated so often that many people see it as a fact.

Tilia C. you are right. It was my mistake - I'm terribly sorry. Grace wore it to Constantine and Anne Marie wedding with coral gala dress (I saw some colour pictures where it was quite well seen but I don't remember where). There are small emerald elements in the lower part.

Thank you for all the info!
It's a shame, I think this tiara looked fabulous on her so even if she was loaned this particular piece I would've liked to see her in it more than once.

Don’t worry, mistakes happen to all of us.
Are you sure about the wedding in Greece? I have only seen a small black and white photograph of Princess Grace at the pre-wedding ball. It seemed that she didn’t wear a tiara at all. But there was another pre-wedding event of which there are only few pictures out and about. I haven’t seen one of Grace at this other event at the Hotel Grand Bretagne in Athens. Actually, I would be careful with old colour pictures. Many of them are actually black and white photographs, which have been coloured lately (namely after the invention of photoshop). So it’s often difficult to say if the colour is original or not.

Yes, she looked beautiful in this picture, but a bit too cold and remote for my taste. At least we get a good view of the jewellery, since it is a studio picture in excellent quality.

Sad we did not see Princess Grace wearing this tiara for such a lot of official Events she attended. Princess Charlotte gave her jewels directly to Princess Caroline and will remain in her family.
2 great jewels although exit the Hanovre jewels !

Unless they had it modified, the ends of the spikes don't look the same to me? Maybe it's just the photos, but I don't think it's the same fringe tiara.

Its always a nice treat to see the Grimaldi jewels out,its rare we get to see them and I think Princess Charlotte's Fringe looked stunning on Tatiana Santo Domingo.

She is a stunning winter bride and I just love to see a Grimaldi tiara being worn again, no matter what the occasion.
