Just wondering if you're refering to the lovely Diamond & Ruby set that Fred gave Mary.
I have read that it was his Grandmothers and she left it to him for him to give to his future bride.
Can anyone tell me if this is true?

(I love that set; Tiara, necklace & earrings)

Is that the real Ocean tiara? Why is it on display when Charlene is probably still going to need to use it.

It's the real thing and it's only on display until September. I assume she won't wear it until the exhibit is over.

That's a beautiful watch. I don't like that particular wrist band with it though.

Prince Albert once said in an interview that it is a Monaco tradition that the reigning prince does not have a crown and his consort does not frequently need to wear a tiara but I would like to see the princesses of Monaco wear tiaras more often. I have never seen Princess Stephanie wear one.

I think that Mary wore a tiara only in the prewedding events, possibly only after the civil wedding ceremony, correct me if I am wrong, untill then she had to curtsey to any royalty, the then Princess Alexandra, for instance. Yes it was the grand diamond and ruby set we are talking about

That's a lovely watch. It is more "swimming pool" blue than "ocean" blue, tho. For it's cost, pale sapphires would have been nicer, IMO. Topaz are not expensive enough for the piece's price, unless they are natural blues (about 1% of all topaz). The rest are irridiated/heat treated --- having started their life as colorless or dishwater brown.

I certainly would like to have one.

Ah no... the Luxembourgers haven't gifted the very grand Empire Tiara but it is in the same exhibition.

The new Ocean Tiara is indeed beautiful and a most elegant head piece. Thank goodness someone finally realised that a simple and classic piece can look so much better than these jewel encrusted "biscuit barrels" that some royals prefer to wear. Charlene I certainly look forward to seeing a lot more of you with your beautiful tiara. A lovely choice indeed.

I'm sure she can wait until then to wear it again. The next time she wears it I hope she wears the other way around (right side up) so we can see it better.

Should the Diamond foam tiara actually be called a tiara? It looks more like a head-or hair piece not exactly a tiara in the traditional sense.

Charlene's jewelry is so her. Modern, yet very classic with a twist. And I like that she's having fun with it: water-inspired jewelry as a wink to her swimming career.

I can't wait to see her wearing the Ocean tiara!
