This book is not as comprehensive as its title would indicate It covers primarily the crown jewels of Great Britain with a few other examples for comparison However, it covers these jewels in much greater detail than I ve seen before There s a good history of how the jewels have been and are used, focusing primarily on regalia worn by kings and queens, especially at coronations There are several items I don t remember ever seeing before and I certainly haven t seen pictures as detailed and c This book is not as comprehensive as its title would indicate It covers primarily the crown jewels of Great Britain with a few
Since it only covers the crown jewels used during the coronation or passed down for several generations specifically in the ownership of the crown to be passed down from sovereign to sovereign only , including the spurs, cruets, chalices and such I thought I would miss the tiaras But there is a lot of history here as well and seeing the pieces associated with it is fascinating.This book has gorgeous photos I never realized that the stones in St Edward s crown were mounted on enamel whic Since it only covers the crown jewels used during the coronation or passed down for several generations specifically in the ownership of the crown to be passed down from sovereign to sovereign only , including the spurs, cruets, chalices and such I thought I would miss the tiaras But there is a lot of history here as well and seeing the pieces associated with it is fascinating.This book has gorgeous photos I never realized that the stones in St Edward s crown were mounte
This is truly a gift book for anyone interested in the royal accouterments of the United Kingdom It is filled with spectacular photography and accessible prose I know certain people who are angered by the very fact that the Crown still exists, but if you set asid
Very detailed in just the right places It incorporates some detail about historic events but only those necessary to understand the significance of these items The photography was beautiful, and the writing was well edited and concise Highly recommended.

Another reason to dislike Cromwell, if you don t already he was responsible for breaking much of the remaining medieval collection of crown jewels Interesting Gorgeous pictures of the gorgeous Crown Jewels Interesting read on the history of the regalia too. Incredible close up detail pictures I wrote a term paper on the Crown Jewels in high school, but there wasn t very much info available back then This was awesome Now I must go and visit them.
