Grace Kelly, an icon of timeless style, is known for her classic strand of pearls. Even on her wedding day, Princess Grace wasn’t without her elegant gems. Her wedding veil was appliquéd with lace lovebirds and thousands of seed pearls!

Known as “The Queen of Gems,” it’s no coincidence that a royal bride like Grace Kelly would adorn herself with pearls. Queen Elizabeth’s gown had 10,000 miniature pearls on the bodice alone, and on her wedding day she wore two pearl necklaces given to her by her parents. As a wedding gift, Queen Elizabeth gave Princess Diana the Lovers Knot Tiara, glittering with diamonds and 38 pearl drops, and on Diana’s wedding day she wore a gown with a 25-foot train embroidered with 10,000 pearls.
