I'm Kevin Andrew Murphy. I'm a published author and sometimes I use famous gemstones in my stories.
Right now I'm researching the Maximilian and Carlotta diamonds and also Carlotta's crown, as seen in a couple of her portraits.
Do any photographs or paintings exist of the Maximilian and Carlotta diamonds, both the stones and the settings? Also, does anyone know the fate of Carlotta's crown and also possibly details on its manufacture?
