    schema:description "The Romanovs ruled Russia from 1613 to 1917, when the Revolution brought their reign to an abrupt end. The late 19th and early 20th centuries were a time of elegance and extravagance for the tsars and the wealthy families with whom they were linked by marriage, and nowhere are these lavish tastes more apparent than in the imperial jewels. Every jewel tells a story. Through his extensive research, Stefano Papi has spent years unravelling the mysteries of Russian imperial jewelry. He has identified pieces with little or unknown provenance, and uncovers the fascinating stories behind the jewels and the people who wore them. He takes us through the golden years, and - after the Revolution - he follows the survivors of the Romanov line, and their jewelry, in European courts and in Paris, where many exiles sought refuge."@en ;
