When Prince Rainier III first pro­posed to Grace Kelly, he did so with a Cartier eter­nity band of ru­bies and di­a­monds. But when he saw other starlets in Hol­ly­wood sport­ing flashier pieces, he quickly re­con­sid­ered his orig­i­nal of­fer­ing. The new ring, also by Cartier, would fea­ture a 10.5-carat, emer­ald-cut di­a­mond, flanked by two baguettes. The gi ing of the ring would not only sig­nify the start of their 26-year mar­riage but a long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween Princess Grace and Cartier. It is for this rea­son that Cartier was the jeweller of choice to recre­ate some of the princess’s most iconic pieces for Olivier Da­han’s film Grace of Monaco.
