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 Gustavs 50th birthday.
