HSH Princess Charlene’s Ocean Jewel

HSH Princess Charlene de Monaco has received a token of love from Prince Albert II; the Ocean Jewel, designed by Van Cleef & Arpels. We witness here a form of jewelery as high in performance as we could wish for, in it’s quality of execution, stone work and symbolism.

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.
