This Week in Royal Jewels: April 29-May 5

April 29 - May 5, 2016

From fashion galas in New York to government business in London, we've got a range of royal jewels for you to marvel at this week. Be sure to vote for your favorites in the poll below!

(Also, PS: I just didn't think it was fair to make the jewels here compete with the stunning display of tiaras from the Swedish birthday gala, so look for a special tiara-only edition, complete with poll, later today!)
