Grand Prix at the Red Cross Ball in Monte Carlo, 2009
The first personal exhibition of A.G. Ananov jewelry pieces took place in Monte Carlo in 1992. Four such exhibitions have taken place in Monaco since then, with the pieces and their author enjoying tremendous public success. For the first-time ever, Prince Rainier III of Monaco invited A.G. Ananov to fabricate the Grand Prix for the annual Red Cross Charity Ball. Since that time, an Easter egg adorned with a ruby-red cross has served on multiple occasions as the Grand Prix.
