The story behind the personal jewels of Princess Grace of Monaco:
The wedding gift from the Organismes Monegasques to Grace Kelly in 1956 was a costly diamond necklace from Cartier made in 1953.
When Charlotte Casiraghi, Princess Grace’s granddaughter, married Dimitri Rassan on 1st of June in Monaco, she paid homage to these family ties.
The dress she wore to the reception in the evening at Villa La Vigie, was a white strapless Chanel, and the necklace, see above, her grandmother’s diamonds, from the family’s Cartier treasures.
The three strand necklace, created from approximately 64 carats of round and baguette cut diamonds set in platinum is in the festoon style. It was not a gift from Prince Rainier.
