The same thought crossed my mind.

How unfortunate that the Bourbon-Parma family is selling these jewels.

IF the provenance is 'kosher', I'd expect the Louvre to be bidding, so the Pearls can join the other historic French Royal and Imperial Jewels displayed in the Galerie d'Apollon

It would be wonderful if the Louvre acquired them to add to the Royal and Imperial jewel collection.

The provenance from Marie-Antoinette has always been very tricky for various jewels in the past, as it was the norm in the XIXth century , in some royal houses in particular, to link some pieces to the late Queen, real or not.
As far i see (i have the press release under the eyes) , the pearls are said to be from Marie-Antoinette "by family tradition" and the diamond necklace, made in the XIXth century, made from isolated stones , "probably" some from the late Queen.
I know for a fact that the Louvre is only interested by jewels in their original settings and with undisputable provenance, so i doubt the museum would be interested in those pieces.

The Bourbon-Parma jewels that are said to come from the estate of Marie-Thérèse de France are probably legitimate.

"are said" and "probably"
Enough said ....
If there's no inventory entry, no original bill ... the Louvre usualy doesn't place a bid for such, pricey, jewels.
