Meet four of Van Cleef & Ar­pels’ most iconic clients and ex­quis­ite pieces from their col­lec­tions

PRINCESS GRACE OF MONACO This pearl and di­a­mond neck­lace was a wed­ding gift from her hus­band, Prince Rainier, who bought it from the Van Cleef & Ar­pels bou­tique in New York.

MAR­LENE DI­ET­RICH The Hol­ly­wood leg­end was known to wear her own jew­ellery in her films. Here she shows off her Jar­retière bracelet in a pub­lic­ity shot for Hitch­cock’s Stage Fright.

EL­IZ­A­BETH TAY­LOR The ac­tress’ ex­ten­sive jew­ellery col­lec­tion was just as leg­endary as her beauty. Among the no­table pieces she owned was this Bar­querolles choker given to her by Richard Bur­ton.

PRINCESS CHAR­LENE The Monaco princess wore the Océan tiara, part of her bridal suite of jew­ellery, as a neck­lace to the 2011 Bal de la Croix Rouge.
