The Story of Grace Kelly's Engagement

Couples historically discuss and look forward to their honeymoon, but the true glow of love shows on a bride much earlier than on her honeymoon. The moment a bride gets a proposal and the engagement ring, the glow starts to shine, hence the term blushing bride. This has always been obvious with celebrity brides as well. As soon as the star receives a big diamond, you can instantly see a change. It doesn't matter if she denies the truth about the ring on her finger or shares every detail with the press- her sparkle becomes obvious. She begins using her hands to talk, including her diamond ring in photographs taken by the press, and takes the time to look nicer than usual, all in efforts to honor and display the ring on her finger.

When Grace Kelly was proposed to buy Prince Rainier III, he proposed to her with a Cartier eternity band of diamonds and rubies. In January-1956, the excited couple announced to the media their wedding plans and let photographers take close up pictures of the ring. The story changed dramatically when the Prince visited Grace Kelly in Los Angeles. He quickly realized the enormous diamond engagement rings movie stars were wearing. He immediately purchased a 12-carat emerald-cut diamond flanked by two baguettes engagement ring. The new ring happened to fit perfectly in her part as Tracy Ward, a story of a Philadelphia Society girl on the eve of her wedding. Kelly would pose for photographs outside her apartment in New York City before she sailed off to Morocco on the luxury liner "Constitution." The luxury liner would make a special to stop for her in a private location for her large wedding.
