This one profiles the jewelry of celebrities, socialites, nobility, and royalty. I think it's availible in other languages; I've seen the French edition.

Sara,
Try E-Bay ( www.ebay.com ). I purchased my copy through there recently and got it for under half the retail value. Ebay is an auction site so you have to bid for things but, as I said, prices are often much cheaper.

You can try requesting your local library to stock it. That's what I do if I find a cool book I can't afford. And I think Tiaras would be one that a lot of people would want to read/browse through.

I don't think they have back issues but you can buy from Majesty. Try www.majestymagazine.com

You can also keep an eye out at eBay, where people are often selling back issues of magazines. I've just bought a bunch of copies of Point de Vue there.

Best Royal Jewels Books

hi guys, plz help me pick one book about royal jewels.

i'm crazy about royal jewels,and want to buy a book about the royal jewels, but as i'm not in Britain or US and the shipping fee of Amazon.com is very expensive, i don't have the chance to buy one. now one of my friend is on business trip to Canada, and he can got a book for me as a birthday present. but as I never really read these books before, i don't know which one to choose. from what i've read on the Royal Jewels board, i think the following books are good, but i can't have all of them at once, so plz, help me pick one!

basically i'm only interested in the jewels of current British royal family, esp. those still in existence (if the jewel no longer exist, then no need to know about it). the books should have colored pictures of the jewels, also information about the provenance and current whereabouts of the jewels

which of the following books should I get??

leslie field: queen's jewels [it's a good book, but isn't it devoted to past royal jewels as well?]

leslie field: the jewels of queen elizabeth ii: her personal collection [only jewels of HM]

geoffrey munn: tiaras : past and present [tiara only?]

geoffrey munn: tiaras: a history of splendour [too expensive, but i guess it's a great book?]




thanks for your help!!! bow

Geoffrey Munn's "Tiaras: A History of Splendour" is truly a magnificent book, but the most expensive of the lot.

If you want something concentrating on the British jewels I would suggest The Royal Jewels by Suzy Menkes, Grafton Books ISBN 0 246 13374 0.

Leslie Field's "The Jewels of Queen Elizabeth" is worth having, but has a narrower focus.

I would go with Menkes for the broad sweep, some good stories, and lots of photos (colour and b & w).

I wouldn't discount Leslie Field's book either about the Royal Collection. I own it and it is wonderfully researched and the pictures are beautiful!

It has been said that Suzy Menkes' book has some factual errors?

hi tiarapin, from what I read on this board, the Leslie Field book is great. but isn't it only about the Queen's collection of Jewels? does it have information&pictures about the other royals' Jewels(for example, the Kents', the Gloucesters')?

Re:

The Southebys Catalogue of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's belongings is a good one for pictures of royal rocks - you could probably get it through Ebay like I did or give Southebys a call - they might still have some. :)

Leslie Field's book does only concentrate on QEII's collection so it has many pictures of her, Queen Mary, and Queen Alexandra and not of her cousins. The quality of and number of photos is superior to those in the Menkes book, I think. I have the Field book in both paperback and hardcover - the paperback would be an economical solution for you so you can have them all.

Tiaras A History of Splendor by Munn is also very good. It's huge, the quality of photos is excellent. About half of it is devoted to the Windsor's collection.

I case you have heard of these: Tiara by Diana Scarisbrick or Ancestral Jewels by the same author I wouldn't recommend for you because neither focuses on the Windsors. Also the Ancestral book focuses mostly on the aristocracy and includes info about jewels that have disappeared/been stolen which I think is not of interest to you.

There are mentions of the jewels that Queen Mary gave to each branch of her family such as the Kents, Gloucesters, and the Harewoods (her daughter, Princess Mary married the Earl of Harewood). She does include at times pictures of Queen Mary wearing the jewels that she then gave to each branch of her family. You will see some of the Gloucester and Kent Tiaras currently used, and she talks about other jewels that these branches of the family wears, but no pictures unfortunately such as Princess Marina's daisy brooches which now belong to Princess Michael of Kent.
