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.
