PR proposed with this ring and only later gave her the big diamond ring

From "once upon a time" by J.Randy Taraborrelli page 126:

"on her finger she flashed what would be a temporary ring: a band set with diamonds and rubies. Rainier told her he was having a ring created especially for her with emarald-cut diamonds"

APL:
Original caption: 1/10/1956-Chicago, IL: Film actress Grace Kelly, en route to Hollywood for movie work, strikes a pose to show off the engagement ring given her by Prince Rainier III of Monico as she arrives in Chicago. Ther Princess to be posed amiably for photographers on her arrival by train from New York. Rainier will join her on the coast next month, and they will be wedd after her film commitments are completed.



maybe this is the second ring? from APL:

This is not her engagement ring. Maybe he gave this to her to wear while the emerald cut one was being made. I know the one from High Society was a BIG ring.

If I'm not mistaken, that is her first engagement ring. I read somewhere that Prince Rainier saw other Hollywood actresses wearing a bigger rock, so he decided to give Grace that 12 carat emerald-cut diamond ring..

When Rainier proposed, it was basically their second meeting (after Cannes, they corresponded through letters, hence the the press never caught wind of their courtship), so he did not have a proper engagement ring. The ring shown off at the press conference at the Kelly home was more of a temporary friendship ring from I read in biographies of Grace.

Also I believe the white evening gown with the lilies pinned on worn at the Waldorf-Astoria engagement ball (appropriately called "A Night in Monte Carlo") was actually designed by Dior. It is very much a 50s New Look gown typical of Dior. Helen Rose's designs were much more delicate as exemplified in Grace's wedding gown and the gown she wore to the 1956 Academy Awards (her last public appearance before going to Monaco), presenting the Best Actor Oscar.

I believe that Princess Stephanie wore the dress to a ball, possibly the Rose Ball or a Red Cross Ball, at some point while Grace was alive. She looked beautiful in the photograph that I remember. Does anyone know the picture that I am referring to?

Yes Stephanie wore it to 1982's Red Cross Ball, pics can be found on the Retrospective thread. Apparently the bottom part was removed or redone.
