Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a glamorous appearance at the Royal Variety Performance in London. But while Kate sparkled beautifully in a green sequinned gown and gold earrings, many of us always long for the days when this was a tiara occasion!

Our weeklong celebration of the princely jewels of the Grimaldis wraps up this afternoon with a gorgeous glittering Rose Ball appearance from one of the best jewelry-wearers of the next generation of the family: Beatrice Borromeo Casiraghi.
