^^ That diamond hairpiece is absolutely gorgeous! Was it made specifically for the wedding?

Apparently it's a series of brooches that belong to Princess Caroline.

Here it looks much more substantial than on Charlene - I don't think it is exactly the same.

Seeing the craftsmanship it looks like an historical piece, maybe set in silver and yellow gold. I want to know more about it's history! (Please let something slip, Palace!).

I'm sure that it's the same piece. Just worn the other way round, and flat on her head. This way the diamonds blend in with her hair and the whole thing looks less substantial.

I can't wait to see the océan sapphire tiara worn! Pity that it's so long till the next national day gala happens. I hope she will wear it than.

As Caroline was wearing a (rather wonderful) tiara, along with many other ladies from the various royal houses, I was surprised that Charlene decided she wouldn't wear one to the evening gala.

She was wearing the aigrette tiara that Prince Albert gave her. Posted earlier in this thread: http://i56.tinypic.com/muhg1l.jpg

It's hard to see it because of her light hair.

All the information about the new jewellery Charlèn got! It's some how nice, but also very commercial. I'm sure Albert got a very nice discount for letting the jewellers advertise with it.

Great close-up, Salma! But it looks strange, as if the big diamond face backwards and you see the setting showing too much.

I think they are rather overdoing the ocean motif, but the jewelry is beautiful. (But they should quit while they're ahead).

Thanks I hadn't spotted it - very beautiful. Charlene has some exquiste pieces. I wonder if she will wear any of Grace's jewels in the near future. I am beginning to think this is unlikely. Perhaps they may skip a generation.

I was wondering why Stephanie and Caroline don't wear tiara's very much. Caroline wore one at the Monaco wedding gala , but Stephanie did not, and Caroline does not wear one very often - last time I remember seeing her in one was Victoria's wedding. I know Grace had a couple of very nice tiara's, especially the ruby and diamond. Hanover has some nice ones, it was a Hanover tiara Caroline wore to Victoria's wedding, despite having tons of her own from her Grandmother. But at the local Monaco events, Caroline does not seem to wear one and neither does Stephanie, so I wonder if CHarlene will follow in those footsteps. I hope not.

As to Aigrette Tiara, is is very sleek and modern like Charlene. I think it caught her type of style perfectly - she does not seem like the standard antique tiara type of person.
Does anyone know the history of the tiara the Caroline wore to the gala??

It seems that Stephanie personally dislikes tiaras. I can't imagine another reason why she didn't wear one yesterday. Even though Caroline is still Princess of Hannover she seems to make a statement by not wearing Hannover jewellery anymore. But there are still all the Grimaldi tiaras, so there's still a good tiara choice for her.
I hope that the fact that Albert gave Charlene 2 tiaras for her wedding: why giving her tiaras, when she's not intending to wear them on Monaco events? For the rare royal wedding abroad one tiara would have been enough. So I'm hopeful that she'll giving them good use. And I also hope to see Princess Grace's tiaras again in the future.

So, to sum it up, Charlène has received three new pieces in the last couple of days:

Infinite Cascade necklace by Tabbah Jewellers

Ocean Tiara by Van Cleef & Arpels

Diamond Foam Tiara by Lorenz Bäumer (the side/aigrette tiara)

Here's more info on the Diamond Foam Tiara:

Monaco's Princess Charlene chose daring tiara - Entertainment Wires - MiamiHerald.com

I like the Ocean Tiara more although I'm not that keen on the circles on it. But it is very beautiful all the same, especially considering it is a modern piece. I do hope she gets more tiaras though, one can never have too many!
