The late 19th and early 20th centuries were a time of elegance and extravagance for Russias ruling tsars and the wealthy families with whom they were linked by marriage, and nowhere are these tastes more apparent than in the imperial jewels.
Stefano Papi uncovers the fascinating stories behind the jewels and the people who wore them.
The revised edition has 48 more pages than the first and includes some 50 additional images of jewels as well as contextual photographs.
