I know, I meant the events she attended... I was astounded that at Princess Madeleine's wedding, for example, she didn't wear a tiara, or a parure, or a smamm diadem but alas, nothing, nada.

The couple chose Charlene's new jewels together, as we know. So they must have talked about the possibilites to wear them. I can only assume that even before their wedding it was agreed that there was no plan to bring back tiaras to the National Day galas. To me it looks as if they were mainly intended to be additional exhibits for the Monaco Forum.
Tillia - This is just my opinion, but the man is very casual in his dress. He takes every opportunity to go open collar and avoid ties. He is very "resort wear plus a sport coat" in his dress. I think she takes her lead from his choices. I've always thought he sees himself as an athlete and she is an athlete. Hence their approach leans to the less fussy, and this includes jewelry.

I think the tiara events may come when Charlene and Albert make a State visit where there are Royals as Head of State and there is a banquet, or something similar such as a coronation, but we will just have to wait.

Her attitude/persona has changed dramatically since she presented Monaco with heirs. Her new confidence is almost palpable.

I am hoping that she will now feel "worthy" of appearing in full regalia at some of these formal events. I've believed she was worthy all along but it takes confidence to wear a tiara and Charlene seems to have that now.

The problem is that Monaco does not make State Visits nor receives any State Visits. The same counts for Liechtenstein. The only very formal visits to Monaco and to Liechtenstein are the neighbours: France (Monaco), Austria (Liechtenstein) and Switzerland (Liechtenstein). These are no State Visits but the new head-of-state of these countries bring a courtesy visit, which only lasts a couple of hours and off they are again.

Picture: The President of France, Mr Nicholas Sarkozy, brings a formal visit to The Prince of Monaco (28 April 2008)

Picture: The President of France, Mr Nicholas Sarkozy, gently greets Madame Bernadette Chirac-Chodron de Courcel, former Première Dame de France (Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco, July 2nd 2011)

Picture: The President of France, Mr François Hollande, brings a formal visit to the Prince of Monaco (14 November 2013)

Picture: The Prince of Monaco is a guest of honour to the President of France, Mr François Hollande, at the Défilé Militaire du Quatorze Juillet (14 July 2015). The persons are: the Mayor of Paris, the President of the National Assembly, the Prime Minister, the Président de la République, the President of the Senate and finally the Prince of Monaco.

I hadn't realised this. When did this cease as Rainier and Grace certainly did?
Guess that leave a coronation.

Has anyone seen better and closer photos of the necklace she wore to mass on Corsica:

It looks to me like it could be the miraculous medal which is popular with many catholics. Claire of Luxembourg(and many other catholic royals) wears one. I still have one from my catholic childhood.

Yes, it seems so. Maybe a gift from the church? Generally, one wears those kind of medal for particular occasions or reasons...

Yes it looks like the Princess is wearing The Miraculous Medal,I think I have one at home somewhere too,August has Marian feast day (August 15th) maybe that was her reason for wearing it.

There are rarely full state visits to Monaco but there are from Monaco to other countries. Charlene and Albert have been on State Visits to Ireland and Germany as well as to some Eastern European countries but I don't think she will wear a tiara on such a visit unless it was a country with a monarchy.There will be many other occasions in the future however where I think we will see her in a tiara. The King of Norway will be 80 next February and I think there will be a gala. Albert attended the celebrations for the King's 70th birthday so there is a good chance that he and Charlene will go to this if it comes to pass.

Princess Charlène was expected to wear a diadem at this event - see picture. The Princess of Monaco was just pregnant of her twins and excused for the banquet at Het Loo Palace, in the Netherlands.

I actually meant King Harald's 25 year anniversary on the throne next January and then a similar celebration for his 80th birthday in February 2017.

Princess Charlene wore an amazing Cartier Panthere bracelet for the Red Cross Ball, it's worth $230,000!

I do not like the design of the bracelet. I hope it is "just" a loan so she can quickly give it back. Perfect for Russian millionaire wives, I would say. I know that taste is in the eye of the beholder.

Well, if no one else admits to liking the cuff - I do! I like the delicate texture, the size and the not so subtle hook and loop closure. The original hook and loop - before the advent of velcro!

I prefer more traditional designs for diamond bracelets.

This one for only 1/5th of the prize (a platinum and diamond ‘Leaf and Flower’ Bracelet, Verdura, 1954 designed as a meandering flowering vine, set with numerous old mine and old European-cut diamonds weighing approximately 25.00 carats, length 6½ inches, unsigned; with fitted and signed box. Estimate – 50,000 – 70,000 USD).

This one for only 1/6th of the prize (a bracelet designed as a meandering flowering vine set with numerous baguette, round, marquise and pear-shaped diamonds weighing a total of approximately 46.25 carats, length 7 inches; together with a white gold, cubic zirconia and diamond backchain for conversion into a necklace, set with round and baguette diamonds weighing approximately .60 carat and numerous round and marquise-shaped cubic zirconia, length 9¾ inche. Estimate - 35,000 - 45,000 USD).

You're not alone :) i also think it looks good on her (i can understand it's not everybody's cup of tea, but then there is probably no piece of jewelry that absolutely everybody likes)
