Interested in learning more about jewels, royal or otherwise? Here’s a handy section of links to various resources, both in print and online, for furthering your own education. I’ll be adding to this section of the website regularly. If you’ve found a great book or website not listed here, I’d love to hear about it. (I can read English and French, though I prefer to read English translations when available!) Just drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!
(Note: links to books are my Amazon referral links. If you buy a book after clicking one of these links, I get a small percentage of the profits to bolster my own jewel library and produce more content for all of you!)
This blog is chock-full of content about royal jewels from all over the world. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been updated in some time, so perhaps it’s been abandoned, but the content that remains is sparkling.
Run by Ayvee, this site is the most complete survey online of the jewels worn by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Recently, Ayvee has also added a supplemental page on the jewels worn by the Duchess of Cambridge.
Dutch Royal Jewels
The best site on the internet about the jewelry collection of the Dutch royal family, hands down. John includes numerous photographic examples of each piece from the vaults, and he’s careful about documenting their history. A must-read for those researching jewels worn by Queen Máxima, Princess Beatrix, and the rest of the Orange-Nassaus.
Featuring updates on appearances made by the Countess of Wessex, this site is new, but is run by Anna, who has long been an authority on the jewelry worn by Sophie. Her Facebook page, My Small Obsessions, also includes content about jewels run by various members of the British royal family.
If you’re looking for daily content on both current and historical royal milestones, this website aggregates just that in a handy format. Great for finding jewel-laden photos from glittering appearances by various royal families!
