Tiara Thursday: Grace's Van Cleef & Arpels Tiara
The question of who the tiara belongs to, or has belonged to, is where things get fuzzy (as tends to happen with the Monegasque jewel collection). Some say that Grace purchased it before the wedding, and that Caroline has worn it since as a necklace. This could be it here:
These days, the tiara tours with exhibits. It's been shown with the Grace Kelly Years exhibit, and is now on display at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City with the Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels exhibit (through July 4, 2011).
(Also: the latest news on the wedding tiara situation, according to my Twitter friend Jeannie, is that ARD from Germany has reported that one of Albert's wedding presents to Charlene will be a new tiara. Said tiara is supposed to have a design reminiscent of waves, be called the Ocean tiara, and is being made by a jeweler in Paris. We shall see! Thanks Jeannie!)
