By TRACIE STOREY 01 Jul 2014 5

This is a fantastic book with lots of information about the women of the royal family, that wore and collected the jewellery within the book. The photos are magnificent and there are lots of enlargements of the jewellery and each piece is described in detail and it's history included. If you have an interest in the history of the royal family and love jewellery then this is a book that you will love and can pore over for hours. It was well worth the money.
