Yes Caroline wore the tiara and the fringe tiara as necklace in Sweden ; I never saw Grace wearing the fringe tiara or the other tiara.
Caroline wore also the ruby earrings pic n°2 and the diamant necklace (3 rows ?)

The Fringe tiara belonged to Prince Rainer's mom, and as she disliked Grace, I think she bequeathed it directly to her grandaughter

Grace wore the diamond and pearl tiara once or twice (for Diana and Charles wedding reception for one) but she was never photographed wearing it.

The fringe diamond piece can be worn as a necklace or tiara (it was designed that way and was very popular). Caroline only wears it as a necklace but her grandmother wore it as a tiara. Grace may have worn it privately, but again, she was never photographed.

Both pieces belonged to Princess Charlotte and were left to Rainier when she died. She left her grandchildren, including Caroline, nothing in her will.

I think for Princess Grace , her hairdo was more important than the jewels.
But why at her exhibition did they show two tiaras she never worn ?

So, who can summarize how many tiaras does the house of Grimaldi have?

I loved both tiaras posted by Zubiaur above:the diamond and the rubies/diamond tiara.They are gorgeous!

I liked the tiara in the first picture.Generally,Grace was wonderful in that photo Pictures No2 & 4 were really funny:she looked like one of Cinderella's stepsisters About the 3rd picture:why is she holding an ice-cream?Is it a "ball masque" or something?

She looks like Cinderella, not like Cinderella´s stepsisters.I do not understand why you have said that.She is beautiful and she looks like a fairy tale princess.Grace is in the ball of the century (1966).Everybody was dressed like old times...

I think she had a beautiful hairstyle,according to the Ball of the century where all ladies were well-combed in that style,like Sissi

She just reminded me of Cinderella's stepsister,because I used to have that fairytale and one of her stepsisters was depicted like that,with these silly locks and a pink dress.I'm sorry,that's what she reminded me.

I think Alexandre did wonders with her hair. But the pink ballgown is a little too pouffy for my tastes nowadays. She was so lovely in the 50s and 60s.

But she had to wear it, because it was the Ball of the century and she had to wear a ball gown of older times,times of Sissi.I think her pink ball gown is spectacular.I have seen it in the Grace Kelly exhibition.The jewels are also spectacular

You see how stunning she can be?She's the epitomy of classic beauty and that is so obvious in the photos posted above.I loved the second tiara and earrings!

Grace's tiara is so magical! Not a princess by birth she became an excellent example of a true princess!!!

These earrings are really impressive and her hairdo is the same as in your avatar,Zubiaur!She looks stunning!!Does anyone know if Grace was a natural brunette?
Thanks for the info,Zubiaur!Either a blonde or a brunette,she looked perfect!
I agree,the red earrings are wonderful,but are you sure these are rubies?I think they are corals,just like the detail on the top part of her dress.
Thank you for the new pictures!This couple was so beautiful and of course,these pearls look wonderful on Grace!!

I think they are rubies. Look at this brooch which is a dog:
