Hald, N - Royal Rubies

Hald, N - Royal Rubies
The royal ruby parure of Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is a filigree piece of the highest craftsmanship dating back to the beginning of the 19th century. This precious set was handed over to the Danish goldsmith Dulong in 2010 for one of the most extensive restoration projects of the century. Nina Hald guided the editing in detail and offers a fascinating insight into the art of the goldsmith and the creation of a new set. Moreover, she describes in detail the historical context of the emergence of the ruby parure - a time in which every state woman had such a possession - and the story of her transfer from one generation to the next in the royal families of Sweden and Denmark. The author also dedicates a separate chapter to the gemstone ruby, as well as the cultural history of the colour red. Hardback edition, English (previously only available in Danish) 208 pages with more than 200 illustrations (colour), size 28cm.
