    One thought on “The Crown Jewels”

    1. A concise, informative and well-written book about the history and design of the Crown Jewels which symbolise the power of the Sovereign over their many realms to the present day. The illustrations have been superbly chosen and are linked to specific sections of the text, which makes the book easier to read.

    2. This book is not as comprehensive as its title would indicate. It covers primarily the crown jewels of Great Britain with a few other examples for comparison. However, it covers these jewels in much greater detail than I've seen before. There's a good history of how the jewels have been and are used, focusing primarily on regalia worn by kings and queens, especially at coronations. There are several items I don't remember ever seeing before and I certainly haven't seen pictures as detailed and c [...]

    3. Since it only covers the "crown jewels" used during the coronation or passed down for several generations specifically in the ownership of the crown (to be passed down from sovereign to sovereign only), including the spurs, cruets, chalices and such. I thought I would miss the tiaras. But there is a lot of history here as well and seeing the pieces associated with it is fascinating.This book has gorgeous photos. I never realized that the stones in St. Edward's crown were mounted on enamel - whic [...]

    4. This is truly a gift book for anyone interested in the royal accouterments of the United Kingdom. It is filled with spectacular photography and accessible prose. I know certain people who are angered by the very fact that the Crown still exists, but if you set aside any thought of the tyranny of monarchies, the items and the history attached to them is immensely interesting presented here in a single volume. Many of the items can be viewed online, but this book brings it all together.

    5. Very detailed in just the right places. It incorporates some detail about historic events but only those necessary to understand the significance of these items. The photography was beautiful, and the writing was well edited and concise. Highly recommended.

    6. Before reading this book I had no idea that a punch bowl and ladle were part of the British Crown Jewels.

    7. Another reason to dislike Cromwell, if you don't already: he was responsible for breaking much of the remaining medieval collection of crown jewels. Interesting

    8. Gorgeous pictures of the gorgeous Crown Jewels. Interesting read on the history of the regalia too.

    9. Incredible close-up detail pictures! I wrote a term paper on the Crown Jewels in high school, but there wasn't very much info available back then. This was awesome! Now I must go and visit them.
