Royal Jewels, call it an obsession or whatever, they are hard to forget. Royal jewelry is not just a reminiscent of yesteryear art but it holds a high value for being so unique, rare and exclusive.
Those ages old diamonds, heirloom sapphires, rubies, emeralds and various gemstones cost millions for their rarity and historical significance.
Though I’m mostly interested in British royal jewels (because they are larger in the collection and more famous), I also love to dig out the stories of other empire jewels. Therefore, I found some really interesting tiaras and crowns of French and Russian kingdom to name a few.
If you also have a fancy for these antiques, check out them here. Also please share if you know anything about the old world royal charms.
