The annual Princess Grace Foundation Awards Gala in New York not only featured the appearance of Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco, but also the unveiling of a uniquely designed jewel created for a pink diamond rare and exceptional fancy color. Princess Charlene proudly wore the Life in pink necklace with the 1.79-carat “Grace Diamond” in the center during the November 3 charity event.

The unique diamond and necklace were presented by Maison Mazerea, which presents itself as the world’s first fine diamond Mark. The necklace was designed by the famous Parisian jeweler Lorenz Bäumer in his Place Vendôme workshop and handcrafted under his supervision in Parisian workshops.

Together, the whimsical vivid purplish-pink diamond and its elaborate setting will serve as a fundraising tool for the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, which supports and uplifts extraordinary early-career artists in theatre, dance and film through grants ; and nurtures and supports Princess Grace Award winners throughout their careers. The foundation is named after Princess Grace of Monaco, who before becoming Princess of Monaco was Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly.

The Grace Diamond was originally known as Argyle Stella but renamed in conjunction with the Princess Grace Foundation. It was the last pink diamond of its color, quality and size to be mined from the Argyle mine in Western Australia, which was withdrawn in 2020 after it exhausted its supply of gem-quality diamonds. It has accounted for over 90% of the world’s fancy pink diamonds over the past 30 years. This diamond used for the necklace was one of five handpicked “hero gems” for sale in Argyle Pink Diamonds’ final annual tender in 2021.

The diamond with its new name was revealed at Parisian launch of Maison Mazerea in July 2022. This diamond will never be sold. Instead, after the unveiling of Life in pink, the Grace Diamond will appear each year in a new case designed by a select group of fine jewelry artists. The piece from the previous year will be transformed by another Maison Mazerea fancy color diamond and sold at auction. In other words, the Life in pink, will be sold next year with a different fancy color diamond in the center and a new designer will create a new piece with the Grace diamond. Profits will be shared with the Princess Grace Foundation.

The day before, during a private reception associated with the Princess Grace Foundation, Maison Mazerea unveiled a collection of more than 25 individual necklaces, pendants, brooches and rings, adorned with rare fancy colored diamonds. The highlight was the transformation Heart of Mazarin, centered with a 7.45-carat Fancy Vivid yellow heart-shaped diamond crafted in the Maison’s workshop in Perth, Australia. It is also adorned with a 3.40-carat heritage-cut Fancy Vivid yellow Mazarin pear-shaped diamond. The transformative piece can be worn as a necklace with yellow diamonds or can be detached and worn separately as pendants or brooches.

Both diamonds are cut and polished in a unique heritage heart shape in a 17th century style, which is the signature cut of Maison Mazerea.

Life in pink, which features the Grace Diamond, is designed and created by Bäumer in a classic, timeless and contemporary design featuring 56 white diamonds of varying sizes and a pendant with nine Fancy Yellow diamonds from the Ellendale mine in Western Australia that frame The Grace Diamond in a “mystical circle”, says the brand. The setting, created by Lorenz Bäumer, offers the wearer a variety of ways to showcase the beauty of the necklace and its striking color combinations.

Maison Mazerea specializes in fine jewelry creations using handcrafted fancy colored diamonds in heritage-inspired cuts and facets. This style of diamond making dates back to Louis XIV at Versailles and is what sets the fine jewelry brand apart.

The brand was inspired by the legendary 17th century diamond collection of Cardinal Jules Mazarin, a confidant of King Louis XIV of France. He amassed one of the most valuable collections of jewelry and diamonds of his time. Eighteen diamonds, known as “Mazarin diamonds”, became the basis of the French Crown Jewels.

Diamond sourcing, cutting and polishing, and jewelry making are done by the brand, which is a new approach to creating fine jewelry.

The brand is owned by Peter Ravenscroft, who is also CEO of Burgundy Diamond Mines, which has diamond mining projects in Canada, Botswana and Australia. The rough diamonds of Maison Mazerea come largely from these mines. It has its own diamond cutting facilities in Perth, Australia. After the diamonds are cut, the company then works with a few jewelry workshops in different parts of the world to create the jewelry. This means House Mazerea has full control of the process from mine to market, or “mine to masterpiece,” as Ravenscroft puts it. This is why he promotes Maison Mazerea as the first fine diamond Mark.

Many of you sent us your Halloween photos in response to the competition on the Monaco Tribune Facebook page. The editorial staff managed to select the 10 most original shots (but it wasn’t easy).

10. Killer Clown

With its red nose, white face and eerie smile, this clown costume is a perennial for Halloween. While clowns were originally designed to make children laugh, this one turns into a much less sympathetic figure for October 31st… There is even a real phobia among them, whatever the time of year : coulrophobia.

9. Live gourds

OK it made us laugh rather than shout, but we found this photo very original. Dressing up a squash with googly eyes takes a lot of imagination. You almost don’t want to bother these guys… Even though they would make a delicious warming autumn soup or pie.

8. Evil Pumpkin

Another pumpkin, this time in the flesh! This costume is a must have for little girls – indeed Princess Gabriella dressed up as a pumpkin this year… The picture of the princely twins was shared by Princess Charlene on Instagram. Adorable!

7. Double Trouble

Are they also little devils in real life? We hope it’s not for the good of their parents! In any case, these two little boys convinced us with their terrifying and really realistic masks!

© Agnes Leblanc

6. Money Heist

Since the release of La Casa de Papel, this costume inspired by the world famous Spanish series is everywhere. They are on-screen robbers, so we hope this reader only stole candy on Halloween night. OK, we admit, it was mainly the doggo that made us choose this one!

5. The witch inspired by “Coco”

This homemade makeup job is amazing! A reader shared a photo of her daughter Camille dressed as a witch. A costume reminiscent of the characters from the Disney/Pixar movie “Coco”. Special mention also for the lace, flower and skull tiara. We love it!

4. Mini Batman

Dressed as a superhero, our hearts melted at the sight of this angelic little face. With his mask, cape and abs, he’s ready to fight crime, just like the real Batman!

3. Bat Dog

Who said Halloween was just for humans? We’ve had the squash, now it’s time for this adorable dog to dress up! In a Batman costume with cape. From his expression, it looks like he takes his role very seriously and is in the Top 3!

2. The Loving Dead

Fresh out of the ground, this couple is terrifying! With their matching hair color and black leather jackets, they look like a “hell” of a pair! They even sent us the kiss of death as a bonus. 2nd place for them!

1. Cruel Hell

She’s probably Disney’s most iconic villain. Cruella from Hell 101 Dalmatians, is obnoxious, charismatic and, as the name suggests, CRUEL. Need I remind you that she has fur coats made from dog skins? With her two-tone wig and her irresistible Dalmatian, this reader takes first place in our Top 10! Let’s just hope she treats her dogs better than the “real” Cruella!

The two women, aged 75 and 87 respectively, had become friends…

It is difficult to describe the case brought before the Criminal Court of Monaco. “It’s unpleasant and incomprehensible,” the prosecutor said. Over a three-month period from November to February 2022, a 75-year-old pensioner stole money from her 87-year-old neighbor who had become her friend over the years. It was the victim’s son, suspecting an anomaly in his mother’s accounts over which he had power of attorney, who caught the neighbor in the act.

He installed cameras in his room when he noticed that his mother – who paid everything in cash – had started withdrawing 2,000 euros a month instead of the usual 1,000. It didn’t take him long to realize that it was his mother’s neighbor and friend who was taking money from the envelope containing the monthly expenses. According to the video footage, she usually took a 50 euro note once a day.

“She sometimes made up to four ‘withdrawals’ in the same day,” explained the victim’s lawyer, underlining the relationship of trust between the two women.

At the home of the defendant, the police found more than 500 euros in her handbag and 800 euros in an envelope. The 75-year-old does not know exactly how much money she stole, but claims it was less than 4,000 euros. The victim’s son estimated the damage at nearly 8,000 euros.

“It is difficult to quantify the damage,” said Thomas Brezzo, the victim’s lawyer. It is also unclear how the accused entered the victim’s house. Did she have keys or did she act while her neighbor was there? The mystery remains.

The accused, who had no criminal record, could hardly claim to have acted out of necessity. With income of 1,600 euros and a rent of 270 euros, the Monegasque had no financial worries or significant addiction. Although the two women were absent from the hearing which took place on Tuesday, October 18, the defendant’s lawyer, Maître Charles Lécuyer, declared that he expressed regret in his testimony.

The judge nevertheless handed down a three-month suspended prison sentence and ordered her to pay back 8,500 euros.

Everyone is looking at the sport from the neck down,” AS Monaco performance director James Bunce says Receive French football news Luke Entwistle. But not at AS Monaco. In line with society’s shift towards greater attention to mental health, football is changing. The Principality’s club is at the forefront of change, integrating two psychologists (Emilie Thienot and Sophie Huguet) into the performance department, to help the club master what Bunce describes as “one of football’s least exploited advantages.

There “neck down” The approach to health and fitness is particularly pronounced in football and in Ligue 1. Investment in the psychological element of the game is minimal. Following Paris Saint-Germain’s capitulation to Real Madrid in the Champions League last year, reports that the club were close to hiring a sports psychologist surfaced, but none ever arrived. been formalized.

The Monegasque approach exudes modernity and innovation. The club is constantly trying to innovate and gain competitive advantages. the completion of their avant-garde performance center in La Turbie is just one manifestation of this quest.

Speaking ahead of Monaco‘s 4-1 win over Nantes earlier this month, coach Philippe Clement said he was happy with the recruitment of the two psychologists, who are returning to a role he had held since joining in January. “[The psychologists] are very important. I spoke with Paul (Mitchell) and the president after the season and said that I thought it was important to grow as a club, for the players, for the staff, for everyone [to have them]. For me, it’s very important to have psychological help here, because last year I was the psychologist here, but in the end, it’s also me who decides.

He continued“It’s important, especially with a lot of young players, who were all big stars in their formative years, otherwise they wouldn’t be here, because of that they weren’t really competing, and now they come here and there is a lot of competition. It can have a mental impact and an impact on confidence as well. We have to help the players and give them tools to channel their emotions.

Receive French football news spoke to Bunce about the role of psychology in sport and how Monaco exploit it to gain professional advantage.

The physical aspect of the game seems to be highly favored over the mental aspect. Would you say that’s a fair assessment?

“I wouldn’t say that [physical well-being] is deliberately preferred to [mental well-being]. Everyone focuses on the neck down. Everyone watches the sport from the neck down. We’re super, super good at monitoring neck down, physical outs, training loads, accelerations, sprints and duels won. We’re really good at looking at that. Not deliberately, but I think we often overlook the mental side because it’s really hard to assess. It’s really hard to train and teach, and to have objective moments in that.

“However, even if you look back anecdotally and listen to players and coaches talk after games, many of them will talk about a mental attribute that helped them or caused the problem. turned off, we weren’t there, we didn’t put in the effort, we weren’t motivated” and so it’s a really ironic situation where the thing that we talk about when we struggle when we talk about mentality, but we don’t train it to the same extent as we do other things, which is why psychology is for me one of the least exploited advantages in football and even in the sporting environment at large. I talk a lot about this topic and how we try to do it right.

Monaco are one of the first Ligue 1 clubs to take the mental aspect of the game so seriously. Is it also about gaining a competitive advantage?

“As a club, before I arrived, but also since mine and Paul (Mitchell) arrived, we try to innovate and move forward. We were the first to have a nutritionist in full time so we innovated there one of the first to invest in the performance and medicine department like we do and so psychology for us is about gaining competitive advantage but also trying to develop our players to be the best they can be, which means on and off the pitch. That means trying to develop champions, trying to develop the French national team and international-level players, and we we know the spirit has to be part of it, so a lot of our thinking and the changes we’ve made are about building a structure that gives us the ability to take that to a higher level.

How will the recruitment of psychologists manifest itself in the field?

“Getting a goal marker is really difficult. We talk to players about their mental fatigue and their emotions and things like that, but it’s not like a blood sample, it’s not like a metric that we measure like running speed If we do a fitness program we can say they increased the lifting weight from 100kg to 150kg – that’s a 50% increase they went from that speed at this speed. There is no concrete and objective marker. However, what we hope manifests in the building is that with the playgroup, they begin to be able to develop attributes that they didn’t have, which they could then use, so it’s not about seeing that every moment they use a mental skill, but about giving them a toolbox full of ways to handle different situations .

“If we’re at a point where we’re 1-0 up and it’s the 90th minute and we have to see the results, we have the mental capacity to deal with that adversity, or with the motivation, or with the ability. to manage the game in a better way. What our psychologists are always trying to do is give players the tools to deal with the scenarios, and when they get to those scenarios, they are better equipped than they weren’t before to deal with it. The way we’ve built the psychology department is that it doesn’t just extend to players. Obviously, players are extremely important and we want to develop their psychological characteristics, their abilities and traits, but we also wanted to develop the staff within the building.

“So we have Sophie, who works with the players every day. She’s the one who organizes one-on-one meetings, team meetings, team building, and all those sorts of profiling aspects. Then we have Emilie who oversees the project with more staff, with the technical staff, with the departments, with the leadership to build a culture of psychology and the culture of what a Monegasque player is. What are the attributes of a Monaco player that we want psychologically and how do we transfer and impart that energy and development to the players.

Are there specific psychological requirements for Monegasque players? Of course, the club recruits young profiles, often highly sought after by the biggest clubs. Clément has previously spoken about the impact this has had on Vanderson, a player who has been of interest to big clubs this summer and who is putting a lot of pressure on himself to improve on a daily basis. So will psychologists help in these specific circumstances?

“Vanderson is and will be a top player. It’s about working individually on what they need. So for Vanderson and others like that, you could talk about staying in the moment and working on the basics, not being distracted, and staying focused on what you’re doing. The focus on what any player does here is what makes you coveted by the big teams. If you are good every day, building, building, building, you will naturally be more attracted to other organizations. So again, we’re not just dealing with that specific topic, it’s part of a toolkit of information and support that we provide to the individual, depending on their needs. Vanderson might have one thing he’s working on, Youssouf (Fofana) will have another, and Benedict (Badiashile) will have another. Benoît and Youssouf are good examples of players at the forefront of the France team, and it’s about keeping them in a good state of mind, continuing to work hard, continuing to do what you’re doing.

In the case of Badiashile and Fofana, is it difficult to bring players like that back to Earth, to refocus them on their club football?

“I would say no actually. It gave them the taste. They dreamed about it, it’s probably every kid’s dream to play for their national team, let alone the best team in the world. So it showed them what it takes to be at this level and makes them want to go back. From a psychological point of view, it is a very good reference.

At this level of football, success or failure often hinges on the smallest details, and at AS Monaco, every detail is scrutinized in order to extract every competitive advantage. By tapping into the psychology of football, the Principality club is at the forefront of change. They may be an outlier right now, but they’re unlikely to stay that way for too long.

chelsea are set to appoint AS Monaco technical director Laurence Stewart to a role in the new Stamford Bridge setup.

An agreement is in place between the clubs and with the Englishman for him to join the Premier League side.

Stewart has previously worked with the Red Bull network, RB Leipzig, Everton, Manchester City and AF.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has previously spoken about its desire to set up a multi-club model with his new side. At Monaco, Stewart was part of a multi-club setup, including Belgian club Cercle Bruges.

Addressing the Training Ground Guru in April 2021, Stewart said: “That’s the beauty of a multi-club model – you can put these principles across all your clubs and accelerate your players’ learning if they move between clubs.”

Chelsea are in the process of reworking their football hierarchy following the takeover of Boehly-Clearlake Capital by Roman Abramovich in May.

Athleticism reported earlier this month that Chelsea are to appoint Christopher Vivell as their new technical director following his departure from RB Leipzig.

Chelsea turned their attention to Vivell after Red Bull Salzburg’s Christoph Freund rejected the possibility of switching to the Premier League side.

Chelsea also names Southampton‘s Joe Shields as Director of Recruitment.

Following the takeover of Boehly-Clearlake, director Marina Granovskaia left her role at the club. His departure was shortly followed by that of Petr Cech, the former Chelsea goalkeeper turned technical adviser.

Boehly was named interim sporting director and, alongside co-owners Behdad Eghbali and Jose E. Feliciano, oversaw a summer transfer window where Chelsea spent more than £250million on new players.

Chelsea are fifth in the premier league and are back in action on Tuesday, against Salzburg in the Champions League.

The small principality of Monaco, on the French Riviera, has long been known as the “luxury capital of the world”, associated with the greatest opulence and, thanks to the absence of income tax, a paradise for millionaires and billionaires looking to live somewhere where they can fully enjoy their financial fortune.

Covering barely half the area of ​​New York’s Central Park, Monaco is the richest country in the world per capita. Its capital, Monte Carlo, hosts one of the most iconic Formula 1 races of the season, and the destination draws crowds of wealthy yachtsmen to its port every summer in search of fine wines, decadent culinary experiences and sumptuous casinos. And, with some of Europe’s finest luxury hotels and a seemingly endless stream of designer boutiques lining its streets, you don’t have to wander far to see examples of opulence, with expensive supercars seemingly passing by. every few minutes. And at the palace, you might even spot royalty, with the Prince of Monaco still residing there, as has the principality’s family since 1257.

There’s no denying that when it comes to the world’s top luxury destinations, Monte Carlo and Monaco in general have had a lot of success in recent years, with Macau eclipsing the tiny nation when it comes to casino turnovers and Dubai attracts the rich of the world with its opulent malls and impressive hotel and restaurant scene.

With a rich history behind it, few destinations have ever achieved the same level of luxury status as Monte Carlo – but is it still the example of opulence it once was?

One of Monte Carlo’s biggest draws for wealthy tourists has always been its historic casinos, which are among the few that still retain a traditional sense of glamor and opulence. But even they have benefited from some improvement in recent years to ensure they meet the demands of the world’s rich and continue to appeal despite the huge amount of options now available across Europe and beyond. . As a result, high rollers continue to flock to the gates of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, the Opéra de Monte-Carlo and the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo, all of which border the city’s magnificent Casino Square, which itself has undergone a recent 2.5 million euro renovation. The Belle Époque architecture it is known for has been polished to perfection, while the addition of new palm trees, a water fountain and a stunning mural by artist Anish Kapoor breathed new life into life in this emblematic part of the city.

When it comes to casino gamesMonte Carlo’s most famous establishments continue to offer traditional favorites like roulette, blackjack and poker, but they’ve also expanded their repertoire to include a host of modern alternatives and plenty of slot machines, making means affluent gamers never had a reason to look elsewhere.

Monte Carlo has a long standing reputation as one of the most glamorous destinations in the world to drink and eat, and that’s something else that hasn’t changed. Millionaires and billionaires continue to be spotted sipping Cristal in its bars and clubs, while those with a taste for fine dining can dine leisurely at the three-Michelin-starred Louis XV, run by famed Monegasque chef Alain DuCasse. Elsa – the only Michelin-starred restaurant in the world serving cuisine using 100% organic ingredients, is another favorite and another example of how Monte Carlo continues to evolve with the times.
