Princess Yi Haewŏn (born April 24, 1919), a descendant of the Joseon Dynasty (Empire of Korea) is a contender to the throne of Korea. She is a second daughter of Prince Imperial Ui of Korea, a fifth son of Emperor Gojong of Korea and his concubine, Lady Sudeokdang. Princess Yi Haewŏn is currently a disputed contender to the position of head of the Korean Imperial Household with her nephew Won, Hereditary Prince Imperial of Korea. She is the eldest of the surviving daughters of Prince Imperial Ui.

Haewŏn was born in Sadong Palace which was an official residence of her family in Seoul and raised in Unhyeon Palace. She graduated from Kyunggi High School in 1936 and then married Lee Seunggyu, who was kidnapped compulsorily to North Korea in the Korean War, having had issue, three sons and one daughter.

Claiming the Throne since the death of Prince Hoeun on 16 July 2005, Princess Haewŏn was enthroned as the symbolic monarch of Korea on 29 September 2006 by the Korean Imperial Family Association, organized by about a dozen descendants of Joseon Dynasty. She lays claim to the title of the Empress of Korea and declared the restoration of Imperial House in her own succession ceremony. The private enthronement was not approved or supported by the republican government of South Korea.

They offer both new, and pre owned jewelry at a reasonable cost. Most importantly, they have excellent customer service. They aim to please & to give their customers the best consumer experience. I have purchased several items from True Facet, including David Yurman, & Tiffany. I have always been happy with the item I received. It is always authentic, " the real deal", professionally cleaned & polished, & looks brand new! You can't go wrong purchasing from this site. Give them a try. You won't be sorry! Free shipping too!!" - AnneMarie "I recently bought a Tiffany&Co diamond wedding band for my fiancé through TrueFacet. We both had some pretty major reservations about the purchase; it was a lot of money to spend and on a brand name, not just not from the brand itself but from a website neither of us had ever heard of. But the great deal and the return policy gave us the confidence to pull the trigger, and we couldn't be happier! The band arrived in just two days and the diamonds were beyond sparkly (certainly an exciting package to open!). We immediately took the band to our jeweler to have everything verified and appraised and, to our delight, the diamonds measured twice as big as what had been listed! We also brought the band to Tiffany to have it double checked there, and everything is legit! We had such a positive experience with TrueFacet, I would definitely consider purchasing from them again and would absolutely recommend them to anyone!" - William "I love ordering jewelry from TrueFacet!
