Jewels of the Tsars

Jewels of the Tsars

The Romanovs & Imperial Russia

written by H. R. H. Prince Michael of Greece

From the fabulous Orlov diamond of Catherine the Great, given as a costly peace offering by the Empress's scorned lover, to the pair of extraordinary earrings in the form of cherries (each life-size cherry carved from a single diamond) worn by all the tsarinas and grand duchesses on their wedding day, thousands of carats of priceless jewels are interwoven here with a lively history of the Romanov rulers, family, courtiers, and lovers.
