An unworn pink diamond

This jewel has the particularity of presenting the Grace diamond in the center: a rare pink diamond extracted in the Argyle mine, in Australia, which until now had never been worn. “Of remarkable natural beauty, every facet of the radiant square stone has been perfectly placed, cut and polished by hand by master craftsmen to reveal an extraordinary brilliance … as if lit from within”, details on his site Maison Mazerea, which bought the diamond in 2021.

Within a year, however, the Grace diamond will be removed from “La vie en rose” and another pink stone will be set there. Following this, the necklace will be auctioned and the diamond mounted on another jewel.

Smiles and loving looks

On the red carpet, Charlene from Monaco, however, multiplied the smiles and affectionate glances towards her husband. And it is therefore visibly complicit that she and Albert II have awarded the Princess Grace Awards to twenty-four young winners from the world of art (cinema, music, dance, etc.). Eighteen of them received a $ 10,000 scholarship and six more received an honorary award of $ 1,000. The purpose of the Princess Grace Awards is to support the careers of promising artists, as did Princess Grace Kelly.

This princely couple’s complicity once again sweeps away speculation about a potential divorce. The rumors, in fact, were on the agenda after the long absence last year of the Princess of Monaco, suffering from an ENT infection that kept her for several months in South Africa. She later she had been admitted to a specialized institution in Switzerlandfor “physical and emotional exhaustion”.

In an interview granted to Sunday newspaper in June Albert of Monaco said he was “hurt by the malicious rumors that were passed off” about his wife’s absence for ten months, explaining that it was “the best thing” to have her back by his side.
