Bejeweled!


We took the day to visit the Munich Residendez, the 
Former royal palace of the Bavarian monarchs of the
House of Wittelsbach.  It is the largest city palace in Germany.
Our first stop was the Treasury--so, let's feel adorned
With jewels. Which of these lovelies would you wear?
These jewels date to 1600-1800
Some of the stones from various pieces were 
Removed and replaced with glass during the 1930's
The jewels, according to our guide, were sold. 

Such lovely tear dropped pearls!  

Bracelets 

This would look good draped around any neck


The king's crown on the royal pillow 
Below the queen
