The Jewelry of Grace Kelly



Grace Kelly’s
iconic beauty has inspired women as well as designers in their quest for classic, timeless style. In particular, the French jewelry house, Cartier, singled Grace out to wear their designs throughout the years and became the royal family’s official supplier.

These are a few of my favorite pieces and pictures from her Sotheby’s collection.




Cartier Necklace from 1963, in platinum and
diamonds which she received as a wedding gift

Grace wears a suite of pearl and diamond jewelry commissioned
as a wedding present by Prince Rainer from Van Cleef & Arpels

Her engagement ring.
10.47 carat emerald cut diamond set with
two baguette diamonds and mounted in platinum

Her other timeless accessory-
The Kelly bag became her namesake
after the Princess of Monaco used one of her two favorite
Hermès bags to shield her pregnancy from the paparazzi.
