LONDON, England (Reuters) -- British police are trying to track down jewelry once owned by the 18th century French Queen Marie Antoinette, which burglars snatched from a west London house.

The victim of the burglary, a 65-year-old woman living in Notting Hill, was a descendant of the lady-in-waiting to whom the queen gave the jewels, including a diamond-encrusted locket and matching earrings, in the turmoil of the French Revolution.

Marie Antoinette, who gave the woman the jewels when she realized what danger she was in, was later imprisoned and beheaded by revolutionaries, as was her husband Louis XVl.

"The victim is devastated. She has lost her family heirlooms and feels her home has been violated," Peter Langdon of the London police told Reuters on Friday.

Police believe two youths snatched the jewels without realizing they had royal connections and may have discarded them as apparently worthless.

Police did not set a value on the jewels but said their owner described them as "priceless."

the true one was sold i think, it belonged to a parure (photo 1)

Photo 2 found in Corbis : These are the jewels given Empress Marie Louise by Napoleon in 1811, on the occasion of the birth of L'Aiglon, their son, which will be worn by Garbo in Madame Walewska. Shown here are a tiara, necklace, bracelets, earrings, sash clasp and breast pin. After being in the hands of Royalty for a century, the collection was purchased by New York collectors, and borrowed by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer for the picture. They were exhibited publicly for the first time in 1929 at the Barcelona Exposition. The most valuable "prop" in the history of the studio, the jewels were insured for $500,000 for the period they remain loaned to the studio.

Photo 3 found in Corbis : Acrostic bracelets belonging to the Empress Marie-Louise are displayed by French jewelry house Chaumet during their exhibition ebtitled "Napoléon in Love" at Place Vendôme. These gold chain bracelets are set with stones whose initials spell out the name Napoleon (Natrolite, Amethyst, Peridot, Opal, Lapis lazuli, Emerald, Onyx, Natrolite), his date of birth, August 15th 1769 (Agate, Opal, Uranium, Turquoise), Marie-Louise (Malachite, Amethyst, Ruby, Iris, Emerald), her date of birth December 12th, 1791 (Diamond, Emerald, Chrysoprase, Emerald, Malachite, Beryl, Ruby, Amethyst,) and the dates of their first meeting at Comoiegne on March 27, 1810 (Malachite, Amethyst, Ruby, Serpentine) and wedding in Paris in 1810 (Amethyst, Vermeil, Ruby, Iris, Laboradite).

Photo 4 found in Corbis : A necklace and earring set with nicolo, intaglios and embellished with pearls is displayed in the exhibition hosted by French jewelry house Chaumet entitled "Napoléon in Love" at Place Vendôme in Paris.

Photo 5 : Cameos in pearl, gold and Meditteranean coral. Chateâu de Malmaison et Bois-Préau -

Photo 6 : Detailing of a diadem in engraved coral from Barberia, belonging to Caroline Bonaparte

Welcome, Darky. Hope you like it here. The pictures and links you posted are great. I have to admit that I have never seen the parure you posted above (the small black and white picture).
