The Story of Grace Kelly’s Engagement Ring

Prince Rainier asked for Grace’s hand with an eternity ring set with diamonds and rubies, designed by Cartier. When he noticed that other leading ladies in Hollywood walked around with bigger engagement rings, he quickly bought her another one. This ring is one to be reckoned with ––  dazzling 12-carat rectangular-cut diamond flanked by two baguettes. The breathtaking ring, with an estimated cost of 4.3 million dollars, later became Grace’s character Tracy Lord’s engagement ring in the film  ‘High Society’. The ring became an instant hit and many women received proposals with a similar design. The emerald-cut also spiked in popularity. High Society was Grace’s last movie. She was secretly hoping to continue her acting career, but Prince Rainier and her new royal responsibilities prevented her from doing so.
