H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco’s New Tiara: The Océan Tiara by Van Cleef & Arpels

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

Ripples shimmer on a ribbon of white gold and round-cut diamonds.
The frothy lace of diamonds sparkles with the water’s reflections and diffuses into fabulous asymmetrical circles.
The waters of the sea, made of blue sapphires, carry 11 pear-cut diamonds in their gentle swell.
Océan, the necklace, transforms into a royal tiara.

Océan- Necklace
883 round-cut diamonds, weighing a total of over 44 carats.
10 pear-cut diamonds, weighing a total of over 4 carats.
A 4.01 carat pear-cut diamond.
359 round-cut sapphires for over a total of 18 carats, in a colour gradation of 3 hues.

The Océan jewellery piece will be on show during the L’Histoire du Mariage Princier exhibition, at the Musée Océanographique de Monaco, from the 9th of July until the end of November 2011.
