Diamonds of Monaco at the Hotel de Paris
Diamonds of Monaco at the Hotel de Paris  “The Biggest Love Story,” a jewelry-artwork created to commemorate the marriage of Her Serene Highness Princess Charlène of Monaco and His Serene Highness Princess Prince Albert II will be presented to the public for the very first time on December 7, 2013 at Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo. Created by Inspirationaliste artist Dodo Newman based in Berlin, the royal jewelry-artwork is a celebration of love, birth and death, containing the princess’ favourite colours. The reflections of the water and the purple shades are inspired by HSH Princess Charlène. The color purple is also specially chosen by the Princess.  “The Biggest Love Story” is a 3-meter long and 1-meter high piece surrounded with diamonds and Swarovski Crystals and a unique coal from the legendary Titanic ship. Newman used many interesting elements in the creation of the artwork and used variety of materials such as natural pigments, plexiglass and liquid crystallized resin. “The jewellery composition represents many elements of life. The Diamonds represent life and glamour, the Swarovski Crystal lines symbolise the process of fertility, meanwhile the Titanic coal represents death. This represents our life stages where the mystical colour combination reflects our Life,” shared Newman. “Last year I created a project to commemorate the passengers on the legendary ship and I realised that one of the brave musician, Roger Marie Bricoux who played during the sinking in the Titanic orchestra was from Monaco. I realised that even if so many people saw the Titanic movie by James Cameron not so many of us know about this interesting fact. Therefore I decided to implement a little element to commemorate Monaco’s forgotten hero as well,” he added. Moreover, the piece is a diptych, composed of two pieces which complement each other. A special cut wave in the middle represents the endless ocean. This is where the two pieces fit together, to live forever together in peace. The two complementary pieces fold together just as the “A” and the “C” in Her Serene Highness Princess Charlène and His Serene Highness Prince Albert II’s dual cypher. With a dimension of 300 cm x 100 cm, the piece is worth $160, 000.  Only the right side of the composition will be auctioned since the left side stays with HSH Princess Charlène in her Foundation.  Other works of art such as sculptures and paintings will also be auctioned. The event is an initiative of Monaco-based  gallery Academia Fine Art Monaco. Founded in 2000, it houses paintings and sculptures of the old masters, specifically during the period of High Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque. The exhibition will be on the following dates and time: December 5, 1pm to 8pm; December 6, 10am to 8pm; and December 7, 10am to 2pm.
