Those rubies of the Bains de Mer tiara looked so very good in Grace's fair hair. And since Charlene has the same hair colour, it must be lovely on her. If only they would wear tiaras for the National day galas again. It looks so silly to have orders for the ladies but no adequate jewels.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Grace's Van Cleef & Arpels Tiara

This is my favorite tiara Grace has worn. So stunning, timeless, and regal. Magnificent in it's simplicity.

That VC&A tiara is very beautiful and it is no wonder that VC&A successfully rents it out to all kinds of movie productions or photo shoots. The late Countess of Paris once wore it in a photo shoot for a magazine, as well as Princess Constance de Bourbon-Parme who worked as a model afaik.

It is a pity that this tiara is not owned by the Grimaldis, Grace only loaned it .

Its gorgeous and really suited the late Princess,pity the Princely family never bought it off Van Cleef & Arpels.

Princess Grace's Gala Jewels | The Court Jeweller

Grace had a very stunning collection. Though she does not have a very impressive tiara collection to me.

Her mother in law had the impressive tiara collection,though I do like the The Bains de Mer Tiara.

To be honest, Princess Grace only had to tiaras of her own: the small diamond tiara with the five arches, and the Bains de Mer tiara. All the others were worn only once and most likely were loaners, like the VC&A tiara.

I heard also that she owned the ruby serre-chignon. Though from what I know, she also wore it only once. So I think it was another loaner. On the other hand she was very creative with her jewels and often tried amazing big hair styles with brooches and other stuff. She knew how to achieve maximum effect with her jewels.

Photos of her engagement ring:

Her ring is absolutely breathtaking. Behind Queen Elizabeth II's ring, her ring is my all time favorite engagement ring. The size is perfect, and not over the top. It has all the elements of a ring that I love. It's timeless, elegant, regal, exquisite, and majestic. Her ring is simply beautiful and unforgettable.

I was just going to add this is the tiara HSH wore during the State Visit to Ireland in 1961 and the article had a group photo of Prince Rainier and Grace with President and Mrs. de Valera.

Here is another one from the SV to Ireland. Didn't she look lovely that night?

Yes she did. The cameo brooch is lovely too and happily has been seen worn by Caroline on a couple of occasions.

I dislike this tiara. Beautiful rubies but I don't like the shape. I prefer them as brooches.

I'd never seen the Cartier Grimaldi brooch before its really exquisite and I'm wondering if we will ever see it worn again?

Wow. That's really gorgeous... I think it is very "busy" to wear, perhaps it suits a very grand occasion such as the christening or the accession anniversary?

I have never seen this one worn, but it is exquisit. The way the lozenge shaped rubies and diamonds shape the Monaco coat of arms is is my favourite part of the brooch.

Do we know when it was made? And for which Princess?

Thanks Agogo for posting these lovely pics - I haven't seen a shot of the Grimaldi brooch close up - it's a lovely piece. I suspect if we look closely at some old pics of Grace where she's worn a sash, we may have seen it more than we think- she seems to wear her brooch to secure a sash quite high and you don't notice it so much. I'm going to have a good hunt around.

I had a quick look online earlier and so far found nothing except another photo of the brooch.
