HSH Princess Charlene de Monaco has received a token of love from Prince Albert II; the Ocean Jewel, designed by Van Cleef & Arpels.
For the former South African competitive swimmer the Ocean Jewel could not be more fitting. She met Prince Albert in 2000 at a swimming event in Monaco and have been inseparable since 2006. The jewel, which converts from a necklace into a tiara represents the elevation of a woman to a princess.
The diamonds, as one may say in old French “de la plus belle eau” (translating into “of the best water”), is adorned with only D IF stones, of which 11 pear shape drops, dripping from tides in shades of blue sapphires.
|Necklace from this set is interesting and unique and can be converted into a tiara.|
