"Mad King Ludwig" of Bavaria often said that he wished to "…remain an eternal enigma to myself and others," as he went through his reign building two magnificent fairy tale-based castles. He loved escape, particularly in the works of the composer Wagner, and outfitted each of his royal homes in a manner befitting fictional royalty.
Chances are he was no more than merely eccentric, playing the part of a mythological madman as he lavishly decorated his homes as idealized storybook castles.
One of his favorite stones was rose quartz, which he allegedly oversaw the mining of and used in stain glass windows. Casting a pink hue as the sunlight passed through it, the stone undoubtedly added to the otherworldliness of his reality’s make-believe nature.
Our Fairy TaleSet would undoubtedly please King Ludwig—not just for the vivid rose quartz stones, but also because of the marriage of those to our lab createdDiamondAura. The ring features a 10 carat stone of rose quartz that is framed by white DiamondAura rounds, while the earrings have 8 ½ carat cabochon with white DiamondAura. Both are set in sterling silver and given a final layer of rose gold.
While you may not live in an extravagant castle like the “Mad King” did, we promise the FairyTale set to be just as extravagant something a legendary princess would wear.
