Here is a video clip about H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco’s new tiara known as the Océan Tiara by Van Cleef & Arpels:
Océan set exalts the grace and elegance of the Bride. This pledge of love, offered by the Prince to his Princess, who chose its name, transforms into a tiara. Since 1956, Van Cleef & Arpels has held the honour of being “Official Supplier to the Principality”. Such a privilege demands the highest standards: that of being at the pinnacle of the art of jewellery creation.Océan: water and its transformations
