Portrait Jewels: Opulence and Intimacy from the Medici to the Romanovs

The recently published “Portrait Jewels: Opulence and Intimacy from the Medici to the Romanovs” by Diana Scarisbrick is now available from Thames & Hudson press. Scarisbrick’s book celebrates objects created to please the eye and to be worn, devised either to express sentimental relationships or to cement official associations. As such, they follow certain conventions and have a rich social history, both as jewelry and as recurrent features of European court ceremony and gift-giving, from the 16th century to the end of the 19th century.
