Where can I buy the book by Bjarne Steen Jensen, "Juvelerne i Det Danske Kongehus" Thank you,

Dear Friends,
Amazon does not have the book by Bjarne Steen Jensen. I have even written an e-mail to the publisher for information on how to get his book on the royal jewelry. Can anyone please help me. Thank you

Muellera,

It looks like the book is out of print: Juvelerne i det danske kongehus af Bjarne Steen Jensen - køb bogen hos SAXO.com

A new book (or perhaps a revision of the old book?) -I'm sure some of the Danish posters or Jewelry experts on this board will know) called "De kongelige juveler" is listed on the same site. This book is supposed to be published next year.

I've ordered books before from this site and have had no problems - but it is very expensive.

Regards.

I like some of the Danish crown jewels especially some pieces worn by Queen Margarethe II,Crown princess Mary and princess Marie except I debt really have much of a liking of the Queen's orange poppy tiara.

A very nice nine pic gallery of one of the sets among the crown jewels: Se billederne: Her er dronningens uvurderlige smaragder | www.bt.dk

Not sure what this set is called in English, (emerald parure?) but here in DK it's known as the Smaragd set.
The reason for this gallery is that we are getting close to Christmas and a new book about the jewels used by QMII and emeralds in general is in the stores.
In it's current configuration it consists of 18 emeralds, 882 briliants and 127 rose stones (whatever that is).

Here are the pics in high res: http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/973/6/2...sttet---ny.jpg

The value, as far as it can possibly be estimated, has been compared to a emerald set owned by Elizabeth Taylor, which was sold in 2011.
A brooch of 23.56 carats was sold for 39.47 million DKK. (Roughly 7 million $).
The necklace went for 56.78 million DKK (roughly 10 million $) and a ring was sold for 19.8 million DKK. (Roughly 3.5 million $).

The Danish set is a little less than 200 carats altogether. The author of the book claims that the emeralds with 99.99 % certainty stems from the Columbian mine Mozo

The book, should you be interested, is by Nina Hald - Smaragder, slebet skønhed Smaragder af Nina Hald (Bog, indbundet) - Køb bogen hos SAXO.com
ISBN-13:9788792894304

Other books by Nina Hald, who appears to know what she is talking about, can be found here: Du søgte: 'nina hald' - Find bogen hos SAXO.com
