The Tiaras of The Romanovs Family & Court

The Romanovs ruled Russia from 1613 up to 1917, when the Revolution brought their reign to an abrupt end.  The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were a time of particular  extravagance for the tsars and wealthy families.  Jewels of the Romanovs Family & Court gives us a peek into this family and their beautiful jewelry.  Many photos of their jewels were destroyed so the book serves as an archive to what once existed.  Stefano Papi has spent years unraveling the mysteries of Russian imperial jewelry.  With his work at both Sotheby’s and Christie’s, his own  extensive research identifies the story behind every jewel and uncovers the fascinating account behind the jewels and the people who wore them.  Papi takes us through the golden years, and after the Revolution, he tells the story of the survivors of the Romanov line in the European courts and in Paris, where many of the Romanov's took refuge.   While some reviews have found some errors with the history of this book, if you love looking at jewelry, it could be a great addition for your library.  The book contains 200 full-color and 100 black-and-white illustrations
