On Tuesday, Princess Charlene of Monaco piled on the diamonds to attend one of the principality’s signature events: the Golden Nymph Awards, part of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival.
Prince Rainier III of Monaco created the Monte-Carlo Television Festival in the early 1960s to recognize some of the most successful professionals working in television. The Golden Nymph Awards take place at the end of the festival, with several awards presented to prominent productions.
Princess Charlene attended the awards ceremony alongside two more members of the Grimaldi family: Louis and Marie Ducruet, who welcomed their first child, a daughter named Victoire, back in April.
Princess Charlene presented prizes during the awards ceremony. Here, she hands a Golden Nymph statuette to Ewa Ewart, the Polish journalist and director of the documentary Until the Last Drop. The film, which tackles the growing problem of access to fresh water, was recognized with the Prince Rainier III Special Prize. Prince Albert II himself selects the winner of the award, which comes with a €10,000 prize, in partnership with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
For the awards ceremony, Princess Charlene wore a navy blue gown by one of her favorite designers, Akris.
But it was the diamond demi-parure that she wore with the gown that immediately caught my eye, of course.
The modern suite of jewelry is set with both white and yellow diamonds.
The v-shape of the necklace is echoed by the long pendant earrings from the set.
A matching bracelet finished off the look. I love seeing Charlene bring out the big jewels! I don’t have any insider info on the maker of the pieces, but I’d guess that they might be from one of her favorite jewelry firms, Graff.
