The photo of the Marie Antoinette earrings are absolutely beautiful. How sad that so many of the jewels and other personal mementos of the Queen were dispersed to the four winds. That seemed to be the specialty of the republic; not to create but to destroy.

I saw these in the Smithsonian earlier this summer - Even more fabulous in person! It was so crazy to think that they were actually on Marie's ears.
