    DescriptionFrom jewelry of the highest quality and finest craftsmanship to gemstone-laden tiaras and diamond-encrusted swords, this accessible volume presents a visually stunning selection of diamonds from among the Royal Collection's awe-inspiring array.Published to celebrate the forthcoming Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II--as well as a special exhibition planned for Buckingham Palace in 2012--"Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration "explores the undeniable appeal of diamonds and the many royal uses to which they have been applied throughout the centuries. These precious stones have long played a part in royal ceremonies and gift-giving, and the book features numerous photographs--many newly commissioned--including close-up views of each piece. Few private diamond collections surpass that of the Royal Collection, and this lavishly illustrated volume offers readers a glimpse of many one-of-a-kind examples.
