Just a quick announcement on a little reorganisation of my blogs. This blog will now be dedicated not only to jewellery of the British Royal Family but also those from other Royal Houses. I thought it makes sense to have all jewellery-related posts in one place.
Since this blog is no longer exclusively about British Jewels, I changed the name (and address) from British Royal Jewels to Artemisia's Royal Jewels. I've already made a couple of posts on non-British jewels, namely Queen Juliana’s Aquamarine Parure and the Dutch Pearl Button Tiara.
My other blog - Artemisia's Royal Den - will contain posts on history, historical and contemporary royals, protocol and etiquette and other similar questions dealing with various aspects of royalty. Posts like Day in History or Coronation Ceremonies will continue to be made there.
At the same time, I also made some changes here to make browsing the blog an easier and a more pleasant experience. At the top of the blog, you will see several categories: these categories will include small pictures and/or links to relevant posts. To see how it will work, have a look at Camilla's Jewels page which is, at the moment, the fullest (I'll be adding a lot of posts soon, promise!). The pages are:
- Royal Den (the homepage)
- Crown Jewels (which will be dedicated to Crown Regalia of all current and historical monarchies)
- The Queen Jewels (about the jewellery of Queen Elizabeth II)
- Camilla's Jewels (about the jewellery of the Duchess of Cornwall)
- Other BRF Jewels (about the jewels of members of the British Royal Family other than the Queen and Camilla)
- Non-BRF Jewels (about the jewels of other Royal Houses)
- Other (a category on miscellaneous jewellery-related topics)
On the right side, you will see "Categories" section. Right now, only three categories are active but as new posts are made, this section will fill in. This is where you will be able to find posts on jewellery of a specific Royal House. For instance, the Dutch Royal Jewels category will contain all the posts on jewels from the Dutch Royal House
Non-English speakers will now be able to translate the blog to their native language.
And don't forget to check out my favourite blogs (bottom right): they are all very informative and served as an inspiration for starting my own blogs. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to include all of my favourites yet but will do so quite soon.
Hope to see you all here as often as possible!
