The relationship between the Princess Grace of Monaco and Cartier is legendary, is loyal. This is the reason why Olivier Dahan decided to involve Cartier jewelers in his upcoming movie «Grace of Monaco», bringing a touch of reality to the biopic.  The film focuses on the years when the Princess left her life of Hollywood stardom to join European royalty, with Prince Ranier III of Monaco.

The house designed many pieces for her, starting from 1956, when the Prince proposed to her with a 10.47-carat emerald-cut diamond.  Cartier has now opened its archives ahead of the film, creating replicas of vintage pieces worn on screen by Nicole Kidman. Five pieces from Grace Kelly’s royal collection have been faithfully reproduced, in the atelier of the Maison, with the consent of the Sovereign House of Monaco.

Among the jewels Nicole Kidman gets to wear are the huge engagement ring, a diamond-encrusted poodle brooch, a chicken brooch, a three-strand diamond necklace, and a ruby and diamond tiara, all of which the Princess was regularly photographed with.
