Treasures from Chatsworth The Exhibition Part 2

How gorgeous is this Tiara? The detail I was able to capture to show you I was so thrilled! It was very dark in the exhibit but my camera did wonderful. The work on this is just mind-blowing! This was made in 1865 and can be worn as a necklace or as brooches. It is simply breathtaking!  

This set of jewels was made in 1856 and worn to celebrate the coronation of Tsar Alexander II that same year. Just think of the stories these jewels could tell if they could speak!  

This was lovely in person as well, so beautiful and elegant.  

I loved seeing this in person as well, it is so regal looking. If we could only go back in time, wouldn't that be rather cool ?  

One more photo of this headpiece! 

Be sure to check out this exhibit on view until September as it is worth the extra effort to York Avenue. The exhibit is such a treasure for us to view in the USA.
