I recently sat down to chat about royal jewels with Kay Quinn and Brandie Piper, hosts of the Royal Dish podcast. The show is produced in my hometown of St. Louis, so I was especially excited to talk about jewelry so close to home! Kay and Brandie asked me to talk about three favorite pieces of jewelry, and here's a sneak peek of what I chose to discuss...

You all know how much I love royal jewelry with a great backstory, and I loved sharing the surprising Romanov connection shared by these two pieces of jewelry.

What could be better than an iconic British royal tiara? How about an iconic British royal tiara that was smuggled out of a Romanov palace after the Russian Revolution...
