Unfortunately, the Comte ended up selling off most of the family jewels before he died.

Here a page that shows some jewelry belonging to the late countess of Paris. I have no idea of the present whereabouts but one hopes they were inherited by her daughters.

I hope France gets it because that is where they belong.
It would be terrible if it disappeared to a vault in Russia or some oil rich nation

I agree--the piece should be in France. How exciting to see something like this come up on auction!

As an aside, Kelly Klein is putting up for auction the Duchess of Windsor's pearls that she and hubby Calvin bought at that historic auction so many years ago--here's a link:
http://files.shareholder.com/downloa...a95/132939.pdf

One of those strands belonged to Queen Mary. I'd like to see the BRF get it back.

I think it's good that the necklace might be returned to France, it would be very symbolic. But at the same time, I don't want the necklace to be put in the Louvre to be viewed only, never to be worn again.
I'll wear it! LOL

What a pity the Klein's pearls are not being auctioned as a set. This way they would not be in danger of being split up as they are now.

So, technically, these jewels were either loose or in other settings when owned by Marie Antoinette?

I am not sure if the necklace in this setting belonged to Marie-Antoinette, weren't it just the pearls that were hers? She gave them to a British lady who later made a necklace out of it, or something like that?

The joys of google :

Quote:
The French queen gave the pearls for safekeeping to Lady Sutherland, the wife of British ambassador George Leveson-Gower, before the embassy pulled out of France in August 1792, Christie's said. When Marie Antoinette lost her head, the family retained the pearls for more than 200 years, Christie's said.
The necklace, made for an 1849 wedding of the Sutherland-Leveson-Gower family, has a fringe of 21 gray drop-shaped pearls suspended from a diamond collar, which is set with 12 button-shaped, gold-mounted pearls, the auction house said.
