We have 2 threads where Princess Charlotte is incorporated, but not have a thread on her, or her Jewelry, so here it is:


Princess Charlotte of Monaco, Duchess of Valentinois









Princess Charlotte of Monaco Diamond Fringe Tiara
The diamond fringe tiara belonged to Princess Charlotte of Monaco, the grandmother of the current sovereign prince. She received it from her father, Prince Louis II, as a wedding present in 1920. The piece, which has been attributed to Cartier, may have been inherited by Louis from his mother, Lady Mary Victoria Hamilton.

Mary Victoria was the daughter of a Scottish peer, the Duke of Hamilton, and her mother was a German princess, Marie Amelie of Baden. The fringe tiara is apparently referred to by the Grimaldis as "a iara russe" -- this makes sense given the fringe tiara's design roots in the kokoshnik imperial court of the Romanovs. Ultimately, the provenance of the piece has never been made entirely clear.






It is said that Caroline has inherited the tiara, leaving Grace out, becaus Charlotte supposedly didn't approve of Grace. But at closer inspection Caroline's frings tiara/necklace has different spikes (longer/shorter)

Princess Charlotte Cartier Pearl Drop Tiara
This tiara was made by Cartier Paris as a wedding gift for Princess Charlotte, mother of Prince Rainier, grandmother of Prince Albert. It was a gift from her husband, Count Pierre de Polignac (Prince Pierre of Monaco, Duke of Valentinois). The tiara is made of platinum and white gold, and features diamond scroll work with hanging pear-shaped pearl drops.

Because Grace never wore the tiara publicly, many have assumed it passed directly to Caroline. Princess Charlotte was said to not have approved of Grace, so perhaps she did not leave her jewels to her daughter-in-law. Considering that Charlotte died in 1977, and Grace died in 1982 - not giving Grace many years to wear it, if indeed the tiara did pass to her to stay in the reigning line. Exhibits showing this tiara have listed Prince Albert or the princely house as the owner.

yes, I saw that as well, but that's a different fringe tiara form the one from Charlotte
