Today, there’s nothing more inspiring than the combination of engagement and wedding rings that Mel Ferrer gave Audrey Hepburn in 1954. Audrey’s stackable engagement and wedding rings can be considered the ancestors of today’s modern stackable wedding rings. Her rings have remained timeless and sophisticated throughout the decades.




    Audrey Hepburn: a Belgian Legend

    Audrey Hepburn, a British actress and model, was actually born in Ixelles, a small borough in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, where she spent her early childhood before moving on to England and the Netherlands.

    Audrey was known for her amazing beauty but mainly for her lifelong humanitarian activities. She started contributing to UNICEF as early as 1954, and after retiring as an actress, she worked in some of the poorest communities of South America, Asia and Africa in 1988-1992. In recognition of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Audrey was awarded the distinctive Presidential Medal of Freedom in December 1992.

    Although she starred in several movies, Audrey truly became famous for her role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. She was an icon and a trendsetter with a remarkable taste for fashion and jewellery.

    What Made Her Engagement and Wedding Rings Special?

    Audrey Hepburn was married twice, but it is Mel Ferrer, her first husband that gave her the engagement and wedding rings that would become legendary.

    Mel proposed to Audrey with a fabulous eternity engagement band made of white gold and set with diamond baguettes. It may have looked simple by Hollywood standards, but as it was later complemented  with not one but two wedding bands, one in rose gold and the other in yellow gold, it made for a stunning stackable trilogy.

    This stackable engagement and wedding ring set became legendary. And while Audrey could choose to wear one or the other depending on her outfit, she would eventually wear all three at once most of the time.
