With today’s news, we have the feeling Nicole Kidman won’t have any trouble taking on the role of Grace Kelly in the upcoming biopic Grace of Monaco. Considering the Princess of Monaco’s long-time appreciation for Cartier, the Parisian jeweler is set to recreate some of Kelly’s favorite jewels for the movie! Talk about incentive.
Kelly’s love for Cartier was cemented when Rainier III proposed with a 10.47-carat emerald-cut diamond ring only three days after they met. We’d be fans too.
Cartier will reproduce that ring, with permission, of course, along with a diamond-encrusted poodle brooch, a chicken brooch, a three-strand diamond necklace, and a ruby and diamond tiara. Kelly was gifted Cartier items as wedding presents and commissioned specially made pieces until her death in 1982 at age 52.
