Diamonds in history
The diamond ring of Elizabeth Taylor outshines almost everything else you can find on the Hollywood scene. Her third husband, Michael Todd gave her a famous 30 carat diamond ring. But she had more. Elizabeth Taylor was famous for the diamonds collection, which also included a Krupp diamond of 39 carats, and a Taylor-Burton pear shaped diamond weighing almost 70 carat!
Jacqueline Kennedy received from husband John F. Kennedy a diamond and emerald combination engagement ring. The ring had an almost 3 carat weight diamond which has been mounted side by side with an emerald of about the same size. Years later, Jacqueline decided to tune up the ring with an additional 0.66 carats round cut brilliant diamonds and 1.5 carats Marquise cut diamonds. Extremely intricate, colorful and brilliant!
Marilyn Monroe was a little bit different from the rest. In 1954 when she married Joe di Maggio she did not display a traditional engagement ring on her finger. Instead, she wore an eternity band style ring set with 36 baguette cut diamonds.
Grace Kelly initially received from husband Prince Rainier III a “simple” eternity band consisting of rubies and diamonds. However, as he took frequent trips to LA he realized that every lady from the high class society was flaunting huge diamond rings. This is when he decided his loved one deserves something better too…so he purchased a 10.47 carat ring with an emerald cut diamond designed by the Cartier house!
