Van Cleef & Arpels has done another documentary about Charlene's Ocean tiara/necklace. It still boggles my mind that there are all these lunatics who believes that this woman who had two tiaras, one necklace and earrings with a combined hundreds of carats of diamonds just for her wedding was going to walk away and give all this up. I believe with every fiber in my being that there is truth to the story - Charlene did "run away" in an enraged shock - but knowing that she was still going to marry Albert and KNOWING that as in the past the biggest Sucker in Monaco was going to come after her as he did in the past. More importantly, Charlene knew that dumbass Albert really truly believed that marrying Charlene was going to boost Monaco's economy and image. ROFL since everything blew up in both of their faces and they were wrong about EVERYTHING including how well they really knew each other!

In 2011, Van Cleef & Arpels had the rare honor of being chosen by a royal bride to create a set of jewelry. The Océan necklace is a tribute to the grace and elegance of Her Royal Serene Princess Charlene of Monaco, who gave the piece its name. This necklace, a token of love offered by the Prince to his Princess, can be transformed into a tiara.
Since 1956, Van Cleef & Arpels has held the title of “Official Supplier to the Principality”. Such a privilege requires the highest standards and a place at the forefront of the art of jewelry-making. The unrivaled savoir-faire of the Mains d’Or, the Maison’s master jewelers, reproduces the grace of life itself.

PPDA: And this was the woman whom you needed? Albert: I think... *** Reporter: "Is Charlene Wittstock your soulmate?" Albert: "I don't know if she is ...I don't know yet.
Van Cleef & Arpels should be seriously peeved she doesn't promote them more by wearing their pieces like the brooch I suggested. They dedicated a line of jewelry to her!? She hasn't worn any of it in public appearances. I mean, such ingratitude. It's not like some schmo pummeled some scarp metal together and offered it to her as a gift, this is a reputable jeweler. I throw my arms up in the air, and a pump in her direction.
Still, if an artist or jeweler makes something with you as inspiration, you show gratitude by buying the thing or something, since you would normally have better means and it's just the nice thing to do. Noblesse oblige!
Riiiiiight. But if she could parlay Internet sensationalism into a princely marriage, she must have some convincing arguments to induce someone into buying her some. She's just not applying herself to the job.
