Okay, being a big jewellery geek, I am always looking for more info/pics on jewels of any type, provenence or description.
Can anyone enlighten me on the marvelous world of French royal jewels?

Prince_Lieven:
Well, the most famous French jewels I can think of come from the famous Diamond Necklace Affair. Perhaps someone can find a pic of the necklace?

Lisa:
The Marie Antoinette's necklace is a recreation...
