How high is this section of the exhibition? China side, the status of the Forbidden City everyone is clear; French side of it, the exhibition academic curator Henry Luoyei Yate, but the former director of the Louvre Museum and now honorary curator. Exhibits, there are many from the Louvre, Fontainebleau and the royal family aristocratic private collection in the temporary, this opportunity to gather together is rare, this time do not see, maybe later to see What is it?
So what are the interesting little stories behind these exhibits?

Any of your vertical and horizontal, but also the background of the coronation sword

One can see the Napoleon coronation sword, which may be one of the most watched exhibits in the exhibition. Hilt a few large drill has been very bright, but with the sword on the weight of hundreds of carats on the big drill is completely immeasurably.

You say you love clover, I use diamond to give you a plant

The origin of this clover brooch is this: one day, the Spanish aristocratic lady Eugenie in the garden and the lover walk, the roadside green dripping clover attracted her eyes, she took off a plant, said it liked this small smart plant. Did not expect, these words were quietly recorded by the sweetheart, and not long before, she received this custom clover brooch as a love letter!
The master of the sister is later Napoleon III, Miss Europe also became the third empire of France is also the Queen of Europe and the Queen. This is simply "you say to the stars of the sky, I'll give you off" the French royal version ... ... cover heart!

The most easily overlooked corners, have the most poignant empathy

Compared to the crown of this large pieces of jewelry elegance peerless, these two exhibits are not surprising, quietly lying in the exhibition hall a humble corner, but they are behind some of the story is regrettable. The ring on the left is Napoleon's illegitimate child sent to the love of the faith, and the right side of this element is the last generation of Qing Emperor Pu Yi gave "Queen" Wan Rong's engagement ring. Although the appearance of these two rings are very different, but the inner ring are engraved with the man's confession of the woman's speech.
The two rings separated by a hundred years, across the West, but has a subtle similar. The illegitimate child, the deposed emperor Ye Hao, no matter how embarrassing people who send the ring in the embarrassing situation, whether they are on the ring of the girls there is true, we can in this most easily overlooked corner, to find some kind of resonance of human nature.

In addition to the exhibits themselves, there is no other "hidden eggs"?

I and my little partner on the steps to play self-timer to play for 15 minutes, a small partner also jokingly said: "Do not say 15 minutes, so take this step 50 minutes to climb ... ..."  

You are my roses, you are my flowers ~ ~

Then, to see this rose behind the smart hummingbird projection it? Near the end of the exhibition, this row is filled with naturalistic jewelry behind the exhibits, there will be light and shadow turns to change the projection, and the front of the exhibits perfect fusion of French garden in the fresh situation. These light and shadow will be intermittent, so if you did not see, do not rush away Oh, stay a little more like a while.

Also, the last row of the gallery's main crown, are in the exhibition when the additional installation of the spring device. Even if you gently walked, whispered, the crown will be slightly trembling up. This is to let everyone feel better how much jewels! Yao! Just a walk when I was shocked, that they made a mistake affected the exhibits ... ...
In addition, we can carefully observe the statue of this bourgeois - Palma de Mallorca crown, is not that pear cut The big drill is shining Ha ha ha, then you have been frightened by the illusion. Carefully you will find that these "big drill" is not the whole pear-shaped cut, but will be a round diamond to fight a lot of broken diamond inlaid in the pear-shaped frame, to create a "pear-shaped diamond" visual effects The It is said that this is a very representative of the United States and Paris unique craft Oh!  

Exhibition hall so dark, Mito are useless? Take all the secrets to you!

In order to maximize the beauty of jewelry, but also as much as possible to protect the exhibits, the exhibition hall of the light is very dark, which let you want to shoot a little sunshine friends circle of small partners feel very upset. Especially that row will be quivering the crown, moving up really bling bling feast for the eyes, can shoot up the bitter can not say ... ...
okay, I have a small partner from the photographer who forced out his shooting small tips!
Lens: It is recommended to use 2 kinds to meet different needs.
16-35mm or 24-70mm, used to shoot the overall scene and large works of art;
100mm macro, used to shoot smaller artwork, so you can more prominent details, get a better texture.
Real experience: most of the works of art need to shoot with 100mm, 100mm advantage is that the focal length is long enough, there is a smaller close range.
All the smooth words, you will shoot the following figure ~ ↓ ↓ ↓
