Snazzy hat too.

Her tiara is from the Furstenberg family. The Borromeos are one of the oldest Italian noble families and own a castle on an island in Lago Maggiore, which is where the wedding took place. Mathilde's sister Beatrice is the girlfriend of Pierre Casiraghi, Princess Caroline's son.

One forum suggested it might be a necklace on call as a tiara for the day. I'm dying to see it better too!

If I win, I think this is what I'll get...it is a replica of the emerald tiara of the French crown jewels.
