Looking at jewelry is always fun, but when it comes with history and provenance — then, I’m down for a few hours of poking around. Enter, Romanov Russia. This company deals in antique Russian jewelry and pre-WWI Fabergé, as well as rare items from the Romanov Dynasty and Nicholas II (also known as the cutest Russian czar. Just one of my many history crushes.) Personally, I’m most intrigued by the unusual men’s rings, especially the laurel leaf diamond band and the circular-patterned diamond trio above. Many of the more “imperial” looking pieces were actually given as gifts by the royal family, which is quite cool.
