TimelessRomance


In an ambitious contemporary creative project that crosses design disciplines and


brings together all the facets of the brands re- nowned expertise, Montblanc celebrates the life and


style of the late Princess Grace of Monaco with a collection of Fine Jewelry and Writing Instruments.


A true icon of the 20th century, Grace Kelly, who became H.S.H. Princess Grace, is remembered and revered for her classic beauty and her inimitable style, both effortless and timeless. Far more than mere surface style, it was an innate elegance, an integral part of her character, touching every aspect of her life and work. Elegance that shone out through her talent as an Oscar-winning actress, through her indefatigable charity work, her commit- ment to family and her ongoing, lifelong support for emerg- ing artistic talent. This style and spirit, charisma and compassion are now distilled into a dramatic series or “family” of precious, hand-crafted collection.


by Terry Profetto


The essential petals are, as the name suggests, interlaced to represent and celebrate the loving union within a couple, the mysterious, magical intimacy bonding a man and a woman.


The petals are intertwined to create a never- ending garland, characterized by soft, undulat- ing surfaces and sophisticated volumes.


The skilled artisans set the petals in a style evok- ing precious lace while the final creations caress the wearer in the ribbon-like embrace of eternity, the foreverness of precious materials.


Warm pink gold, capturing the light with every movement, and brilliant diamonds, to highlight the natural essence of the petal, are skillfully crafted together to create a contemporary, yet timeless, declaration of love.
