A pair of diamond jewelry belonging to the French royal family has been sold at a public auction.
That’s a whopping $ 8.18 million.
A pair of diamond jewelry that has belonged to the European royal family for nearly 200 years has been auctioned off by the world-renowned Christie’s Auction Company.
The auction included a pair of diamond jewelry belonging to Queen Marie Antoinette of France.
Christie’s expects the diamond pair to sell for between $ 2 million and $ 4 million.
However, it received a bid of US $ 8.18 million.
It is reported that 112 diamonds were inlaid on the pair of dresses which were encrusted in a blue velvet box.
Queen Marie Antoinette, who was killed in the guillotine in 1793, had sent these garments to her daughter before she was assassinated.Leave a comment
