“Princess Grace” Foundation Awards Ceremony

The princely couple of Monaco stepped out in New York City on Thursday evening for the Princess Grace Awards Annual Gala, celebrating this year’s class of Princess Grace Award winners in theater, dance and film. Albert, 64, was dapper in a classic tux, while Charlene, 44, glowed in a sleeveless floral gown and a very special necklace.In a fashion first, Charlene had the honor of wearing the pink Grace Diamond for its public debut. The 1.79-carat radiant cut sparkler is owned by Maison Mazerea, a new brand specializing in rare colored diamonds, uniquely autonomous in its process from mining to design. Fastened by Parisian jeweler Lorenz Bäumer into a necklace called “La Vie en Rose,” the center gem will later be removed and reimagined into a successive collection of pieces under the Maison Mazerea name.
