All About Grace Kelly’s Engagement Ring

Grace Kelly Engagement Ring

Celebrities inspire us–especially when it comes to beauty, fashion, and trends. One iconic celebrity who never fails to impress is actress Grace Kelly. Her beauty, talent, classic style, and fairytale life inspire people to this day…almost 70 years after her historical engagement to Prince Rainier III of Monaco.

Before we dive into the ring details, let’s cover a little background about this monumental engagement. Prince Rainier III met Grace Kelly at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955. They were captivated by one another, and he proposed seven months later. Prince Rainier traveled to the actress's hometown in Philadelphia that Christmas to propose. After a yearlong romance, the couple married in an extravagant royal wedding in 1956.

Grace Kelly’s engagement ring from Prince Rainier III of Monaco made history because of its size and cost at the time. Grace Kelly’s famous engagement ring is a 10.48-carat Cartier ring, and it’s one of the priciest pieces of celebrity jewelry in history. The incredible ring cost $4,060,000 in 1956. Today, the diamond ring would cost about $38,866,738. The spectacular ring features an emerald-cut diamond flanked by two baguette-cut side stones that’s set in platinum. Three stone rings like Grace’s symbolize the past, present and future of the relationship. It’s an iconic design that has inspired today’s celebrity engagement rings, such as Amal Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Liz Taylor.
