I think it was the film "High Society" that the engagement ring Grace Kelly wears in the film is actually her real one from Ranier. So maybe there are close-ups in the film.

I found some pics form Hogh Society with her wearing a ring, so maybe this is the ring.

Is that it? I thought it was a huge ring. I'm pretty positive that the pic of the ring i posted earlier was the actual engagement ring. The pic you posted tbhrc could be the wedding band

Her engagement ring was a twelve-carat emerald-cut diamond ring.

Never seen a clear picture of it but found some pics were you can see it.
She usually wore a smaller ring because that diamond is huge.
