Few modern Hollywood stars can match Italian actress Monica Bellucci when it comes to diamonds. Following a successful modeling career, the actress made her film debut in the early 1990s, displaying an uncompromising dedication to sparkling gems from Cartier, Chopard, and Boucheron.
Bellucci favors necklaces, which she employs to create a dramatic impression on her décolletage. And when it comes to accessorizing her red-carpet appearances, the Bond girl leaves no stone untouched, rotating between emeralds, diamonds, rubies, and sapphires.
