Just saw this documentary. Wow! Be prepared! Elizabeth Taylor and Queen Elizabeth pale in comparison! All I kept on thinking throughout the film was, how do you clean those jewels?! US them?! That Catherine the Great was such a diva! I read once that she would wear her emerald jewelry during negotiations with other countries as a sign of power and to intimidate.

Me too! What was the name of the type of diamonds they mined from India? Weren’t they flawless diamonds or something?

Thank you so much for posting this. It was fascinating. I especially love the story about the amber room.
