Queen's Jewels by Leslie Field
Here is the first definitive account of the priceless jewels owned by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II to be published with the full cooperation of Buckingham Palace. It includes stories and pictures of jewelry as worn by members of the royal family for over 400 years. Author Leslie Field, former fashion editor of The Sunday Times (London) and former editor of The Tatler, pored over little-known memoirs, photographs, and documents from the Royal Archives to write her lively and anecdotal text. Nearly 300 photographs capture the beauty and radiance of the jewels themselves and offer revealing glimpses into the lives of the world's most famous royal family.
