Montblanc pays tribute to one of the most remarkable individuals of all time and gives support to her artistic legacy the Princess Grace Foundation-USA.
On September 8th 2011, 350 VIP guests from around the world came together in Monaco to celebrate the global launch of the Montblanc “Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco”. Montblanc has developed an outstanding concept for the launch of the Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco. Attended by H.S.H. Prince Albert of Monaco and H.R.H. Princess Caroline of Hanover, “Grace for Grace” was a tribute in three acts - a fascinating musical and visual journey through Princess Grace’s life from Philadelphia girl, to Hollywood star and finally to Princess.
Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco, was a role model to millions. Her celestial beauty, stunning elegance and calm demeanor defined the 1950s and illustrated the covers of magazines all over the world. She had a signature style that embraced her films and private life. She was one of the foremost talents of her generation. Providing for new talent was a defining principle throughout her lifetime. She encouraged many emerging artists, from different creative disciplines, to pursue their career ambitions.
The Collection, consisting of three one-of-a-kind fine jewelry sets, timepieces and writing instruments is true to Princess Grace of Monaco’s iconic timeless style and sophistication. Feminine and timelessly elegant, the pieces from this collection are some of the most exquisite ever-crafted in Montblanc’s Ateliers, rich in details 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 jewelry 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.
