Jewels on Film: Faberge and the Romanovs

Today I've got two vintage British Pathe film clips for you that feature royal jewelry and jeweled objects. Above, footage from 1950 features several Faberge pieces, including a number of the Romanov imperial eggs and a glimpse of the diamond myrtle wreath tiara from the Westminster collection. Below, 1926 newsreel clips featuring the Russian imperial jewels at the time of the Soviet auction.
