Record jewelry sale from the age of queens in France


A diamond and pearl pendant that once belonged to Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France before the French Revolution sold for a record 36-million 427-thousand dollars even though it was estimated at 2-million. 

But for what it’s worth natural pearls were more expensive than gemstones back in the 18th century given their extreme rarity.

A monogram ring with woven strands of Antoinette’s hair went for around $440,000.
