Stunning necklace design and the colour is quite breathtaking.

Does anyone know if:

they are Canary Diamonds, and

if they are on loan or belong to Charlene?

Apparently it is from Cartier's L'Odyssée Collection (2013):

The Princess of Monaco Jewellery [Charlene]

That is a stunning necklace. Love the matching earrings. They compliment each other well- statement necklace with smaller, though beautiful, earrings.

Great to see Charlene again in some bigger Jewels. Wonder if it is a loan or if she wons it. Pity that she doesn't wear some of the Family Jewels but perhaps this will come at some point.

The necklace that Charlene wore at the concert of Marina Kayes seemed to be the necklace that Princess Grace wore at a Red Cross Gala

It is nice that Charlene is wearing more jewekkery pieces, I think Albert is enough rich to offer her these sorts of jewel
A question why there is always this question ' a loan or does Charlene belong these earings? each time, Charlene is wearing beautiful collars or earings but this question is never asked to other princesses or queens.

Simply because other royal and princely houses tend to wear their historical jewlry pieces.

Other queens and princesses do get some questions about jewelry. There have been questions about some of the Countess of Wessex and the Duchess of Cornwall's pieces. However, the BRF has a long webpage about official gift policy and usually avoid the controversy surrounding big pieces so people readily assume they're official gifts or loan. In 2014, the Cour confirmed HGD Stephanie's tiny butterfly tiara is a new addition to the GDF collection but didn't provide more details. There were questions about Princess Claire's ruby parure last year.

Other families have foundations or their pieces can be easily traced via marriage, inheritance, etc.

My guesses about the frequent questioning of Princess Charlene:
1. No family foundation or lack of historical jewels. So any jewelry raises speculation. Loan? Gift? Her own purchase?
2. Curiosity about the division of Princess Grace's collection. There are reports Princess Caroline got all or most of Grace's jewels with the understanding to share with Princess Stephanie. Maybe Prince Albert inherited a few pieces?
3. Prince Albert and his family are wealthy on their own. No appanage but folks are curious how they spend their money anyway.
4. Sometimes there's extra snark about Monaco's royals. I visit another blog and sadly Monaco posts become contentious quickly.

It's so nice to see Charlene wearing more fine jewellery, the new necklace and earrings really suit her.

Thanks. Interesting that the necklace seems to be one of Princess Grace's necklaces. Think the question pops up because Charlene has until now only worn a Family Jewel at her Wedding Day. The others Jwels she was has worn habe often not been seen before

Yes it is and she seems to becoming more and more comfortable wearing jewels after a lengthy jewel drought ,pity there are no future tiara events involving Monaco.

That necklace design is stunning and suits Charlene very much.

I can well understand that people wonder whether her jewels are loans or not. Firstly, there are so many pieces that she has worn only once. If she wore them more often, it would be fairly obvious that they are hers. But how can we know when she only wears them once? Secondly, as was already mentioned, other Princesses loan jewels as well. Princess Grace herself did so on a regular basis. Let's not forget that any jeweler would gladly loan her the most spectacular stuff. It's the best publicity they can get. They probably queue up at the palace gates go present their creations to her. How can a girl say no to that.

Lovely as all of these jewels are, I would be happier to see Charlene wear fewer jewels that we thought were hers. As of now, a lot of what she wears could well have been borrowed - no confirmation either way, but most jewels tend not to get repeated 5
