It is reported that each of the bracelets of the former Queen of France is decorated with three rows of diamonds. They can be combined into one necklace. Each of the stones is one to four carats in size.

Before trying to escape from France with the King and his children after the French Revolution, Marie managed to send jewelry to Brussels, from where they were transferred to relatives in her homeland in Austria.

Antoinette was the Queen of France from 1774-1792. She was credited with a love of luxury when the French people were starving. After the overthrow of the monarchy, she was arrested and executed.
