Marie-Antoinette's Jewelry Comes to Auction

History’s most iconic images of Marie-Antoinette frequently show her wearing strings of pearls and diamonds—now, items from her personal jewelry collection are being revealed to the public for the first time in 200 years On November 12, Sotheby’s Geneva will bring more than 100 jewels up for sale that were once owned by France’s infamous last queen as well as items from the repertoire of King Charles X of France, the Archdukes of Austria, and the Dukes of Parma. “Never before seen in public, this extraordinary group of jewels offers a captivating insight into the lives of its owners going back hundreds of years,” said Daniela Mascetti, deputy chairman of Sotheby’s Jewelry Europe and senior international specialist, in a statement “What is also striking is the inherent beauty of the pieces themselves.

The precious gems they are adorned with and the exceptional craftsmanship they display are stunning in their own right.” Called . Source
