Montblanc introduced the 'Collection Princess grace de Monaco" ~ A tribute to the 20th centruary's unforgettable style icon, Grace Kelly, the actress, princess and patron of the arts, was and will forever be, a major influence for people who treasure elegance through all expressions. Grace Kelly, Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco, is a woman admired for her iconic timeless style, her artistic talent as an Oscar-winning actress and for her unrelenting commitment to helping others. She inspired an entire generation and is still considered today to epitomize the archetype of beauty, elegance and style.
The collection does not only embody Grace Kelly’s personal fulfillment, compassion and family values, Montblanc also gives support to her artistic legacy the Princess Grace Foundation – USA. The “Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco” unveiled in the global launch had aroused a lot of attention in the market.
The Collection, consisting three one-of-a-kind sets of Haute Joaillerie, fine jewellery, timepieces and writing instruments, is true to Princess Grace of Monaco’s much admired style and sophistication. Feminine and timelessly elegant, the pieces from this collection are the most exquisite ever crafted in Montblanc’s Ateliers, every detail inspired by this icon’s spirit and attention to style. The Grace de Monaco Pink Rose - created in 1956 on the occasion of Grace Kelly’s marriage to His Serene Highness Rainier III, Prince de Monaco - is a recurring motif in all Editions, embellished with refined petal cut stones, paying tribute to the unique rose. The Montblanc Fine Jewellery is set with lavish drop cut precious stones and diamonds; the Montblanc Timepieces feature an opulent three-dimensional drop of pink sapphire, while the Writing Instruments are adorned with petal-cut diamonds, pink sapphires and topazes.Pieces in the collection include a necklace of cascading pink sapphires and diamonds, long earrings ending with drop cut pink sapphires and a refined bracelet to match. A final set in limited availability is composed of a more understated necklace with a matching pair of earrings paired with a sinuous ring that entwines the finger in diamonds and pink sapphires.
The unique Montblanc Diamond is married with sumptuous diamonds and precious intense pink sapphires to create a cascade effect that truly captures the beautiful and eternal personality of a genuine style icon. Montblanc has been inspired by Princess Grace’s style as well as by her love for roses – and developed these ideas in a direction that applies well to writing instruments as well as to jewellery and watches. The collection relies on signature “petal cut” stones and volumes, and brings in delicate touches of colours and sparkles of diamonds. It is designed for women who know, understand and appreciate the power of a myth and are able to capture a part of it with their own strong personality.
