Russian court culture was an unprecedented phenomenon. One of the Hermitage’s great treasures is its collection of jewelery, often from tsars, tsarina’s and wealthy grand dukes. The precious jewelery portrays fashion from the seventeenth to the early twentieth century, with the names of famous jewelery houses such as Cartier, Boucheron and Fabergé regularly appearing.

In Jewels! you will find a lot of background information about the jewelry worn by the tsars and the Russian elite, as well as numerous (often entertaining) anecdotes. In addition to a fascinating reference book with more than 500 images, this is a book to dream away with – in the glitz and glamor of high society from a bygone era.

“The dazzling sparkle of all those gems on the shoulders of the ladies will stay on my retina for a long time. A fantastic stream of diamonds, pearls, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, topazes, berils … a stream of light and fire. “(French envoy in St. Petersburg)
