Item                      The Royal Jewels - The fascinating history of the royal jewels of Europe

Condition            New

Description        A world very few people know – but one many would like to know more about.

They have been stolen and resurrected as copies. They have been given as dowries and used as a cure for bad consciences in broken engagements. They have been hidden beneath women's skirts and smuggled out of chaotic countries. And some are still buried in the woods of Siberia. It is the story of European civilization, where the symbols of royal power and the most visible evidence of royal dignity, the legitimacy of the family, are the impressive jewels worn at the great dinners and State visits. Few people know that some of the most fascinating jewels in the world are often tied to the high points of the history of the various royal families.

Through the history, European royal families were known for their great wealth, and as an expression of this, they adorned extravagant garments and beautiful jewellery. Today, some of the monarchies no longer exist, but the jewels are still worn by the remaining royal families at festive occasions they attend or house. This two part documentary will take the viewer through their fascinating story and the human destinies behind them. These are stories of power, love, triumph, tragedy and honour. Includes rare archival footage, and interviews with members of the Danish and Swedish Royal Families.
