Soon after St Petersburg was established in 1703, jewellers began setting up workshops, and the art flourished further under the reigns of successive queens later that century. In this highly illustrated and informative volume, the author, herself born into a family of St Petersburg goldsmiths, uses letters, portraits, diaries, anecdotes and personal documents to trace the history of individual brooches, bracelets, rings and other items of jewellery – items that often passed through generations of the same families.
