The French have a knack for rocking those diamonds with style, giving them the royal treatment they truly deserve! In this month’s spotlight, we delve into the opulent and extravagant realm of Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France before the storm of the French Revolution hit. Now, let’s rewind to an era where scandals were as rampant as the extravagant jewels adorning the queen. Marie Antoinette, in all her regal glory, faced the notorious “Affair of the Diamond Necklace,” adding a touch of scandal to her already colorful reputation.

Fast forward to the present, and we find ourselves immersed in the splendor of her personal jewelry collection. Sit tight, as we reveal that 10 pieces from the former French queen’s trove fetched a jaw-dropping $42.7 million! Can you name another queen who outshines Marie Antoinette in the realm of jewels, pearls, and diamonds? We’ll wait.

Living The 18th Century Life!

Let’s pay attention to the star of the show—the Pearl Pendant. A teardrop pearl suspended from an oval-shaped diamond, connected by a string of smaller diamonds in a dramatic bow. According to Sotheby’s, this piece was originally part of a three-strand pearl necklace, also auctioned, with the largest stone serving as the necklace’s clasp.

But here’s the twist in the tale, the sentimental side of Marie Antoinette. In a bid to protect her cherished possessions during the tumultuous French Revolution, she clandestinely passed on some of her most beloved treasures to her relatives. It’s a bittersweet reminder of just how deeply she adored her precious belongings.

Apart from this bling baby, the collection also showcased a pendant, a diamond ring flaunting her initials with a lock of her hair, a dazzling yellow diamond swinging from a brooch, and a pair of pearl and diamond earrings

But wait, there’s more! The Diamonds’ journey to visit her nephew, the emperor of Austria in Vienna, is a tale as riveting as a blockbuster movie. Yet, for now, let’s roll out the red carpet for this month’s showstopper: the mesmerizing piece of bling that’s stealing the show!
