long live the queen

April 18, 2012

when I was in London last November, I spent well over an hour marveling over the expansive jewelry collection at the V&A museum.  so many exquisite, priceless pieces on display but no pictures allowed!  I searched the gift shop for a book about the collection and had to settle for this postcard set instead.

these images don’t really do the pieces justice, but just imagine velvet lined walls and cases covered in centuries worth of diamonds, tiaras, broaches, and necklaces fit for a queen.
