Grace Kelly received the Cartier necklace as a wedding gift from her husband Prince Rainier in 1956.
Grace Kelly's famous Carter necklace was back in the spotlight last month when her granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi wore it during her civil ceremony with Dimitri Rassam in Monaco.
Charlotte and Dimitri's civil ceremony was the first of two celebrations hosted by the newlyweds. Similar to Charlotte's grandparents, the couple chose to have both a civil ceremony on June 1 in Monaco and a religious ceremony on June 29 in the south of France.
At the reception for her civil ceremony on June 1, Charlotte Casiraghi donned her grandmother's stunning Cartier piece. Coupled with a sleek gown and classic updo, it's clear that Casiraghi was channeling her grandmother's timeless style.
Wedding photographer Françoise Dumas shared a snap of Charlotte and her husband Dimitri from their reception:
In 1956, Grace Kelly, whose grandfather hailed from Co Mayo, and Prince Rainier also had two ceremonies.
As a wedding gift to his new wife, Prince Rainier presented Grace Kelly with a stunning Cartier necklace, which Town & Country magazine describes as “perhaps the most celebrated of the family’s Cartier treasures.”
“The three strand necklace, created from approximately 64 carats of round and emerald-cut diamonds set in platinum is in the festoon style.”
“It has been a celebrated part of many of Cartier’s jewelry exhibits around the world but still belongs to the royal family of Monaco, specifically to Prince Albert.”
