What does genuine greatness look like?
Depending on the perception of the world, we see it differently. Wealth, wisdom, steel character, dancing youth, love, dignity, flexible mind. The choice depends on the angle of view. But there are objective things, like the theory of relativity — it’s impossible to argue with them.
This is a parade of planets in the galaxy, the power of the sun and the beauty of the starry sky. True greatness is in objectivity. It is impossible to argue with the Solar System and disagree with the movement of the planets in orbit. It is also impossible to argue with the historical role of the Louvre and the magnificence of Versailles.
Versailles — not buildings and parks, not wide windows and magnificent rooms. Versailles — a symbol of genuine greatness of the French people. Fates were created in it, dynasties were born and coups took place. Versailles is a metaphor, it concentrates real strength and power. The Middle Ages made France a superpower, and today we can look into the Versailles gardens and feel the power to the last leaf.
Absolute monarchy reached its apogee in a mighty palace. Look at its golden walls and silk sheets, look back at ancient sculptures and paintings by great artists. Refinement and strength — so you can describe the palace, and your eyes can not argue. Did you know that there are seven rooms in Versailles devoted to ancient deities — Diana, Mars, Mercury, Apollo, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus? The emblem of the King of France was the Sun, the coat of arms was the lily, and the chambers were lent to the plots of the parade of planets.
There is a moment when the decoration is so beautiful that it is impossible to argue. It concentrates power, beauty and elegance, like the palace of Versailles, which became a collection of past eras.
Earrings from the Versailles collection created for the author's recipe of palladium gold, and their patterns resemble the architecture of the Small and Great Trianon. In Paris we lent elegance, in French — charisma, in the palace — grandeur and beauty.
In the heart of «Versailles» — delicate twilight rubies; they do not need to write treatises, just take a look.
