Princess Charlottes Fringe Tiara

Princess Caroline of Monaco here wears the Cartier tiara of her grandmother. In addition, she is wearing a “Tiara Russe” as a necklace, which was formerly in the possession of Princess Charlotte of Monaco. Ray or fringe tiaras were around the turn of the twentieth century very much in fashion and are a variation of the Russian kokoschnik.

When secured to a frame, they formed a glittering tiara but without this support they were a flexible necklace with an impressive ray effect. Princess Caroline also wore this particular jewellery combination in Stockholm on the occasion of King Carl Gustav’s 50th birthday.
