The story of Aline Griffith’s life reads like an unbelievable novel. In 1943, she worked as a fashion model on Fifth Avenue before being recruited by U.S. Intelligence. They trained her for espionage and sent her to infiltrate Madrid’s high society. Her mission: attend lavish parties, search for top Nazi agents, and crack the German spy network. Following the war she married into the Spanish aristocracy and became a bonafide Countess, heir to one of the largest fortunes in Spain.
Recently, selections from her private jewelry collection were sold at auction in Geneva. The star of the show was a stunning ruby and diamond necklace. While that red and white beauty surely landed in the hands of an anonymous millionaire, we wanted to recapture the excitement of the former spy’s royal rubies for you. You won’t be able to keep it a secret.
Our ruby-studded salute to subterfuge fits beautifully on your finger. The Provocateur Ruby Ring features a bold arrangement of genuine natural rubies and sparkling lab-created DiamondAura® set into fine .925 sterling silver. Much like the legendary lady herself, the ring exudes a sense of mystery, glamor and adventure. It provides the perfect cover for infiltrating high class, elegant affairs. And just by wearing it, even the most delicate women suddenly seem more dangerous.
