I found some lovely jewelry that reminds me of Marie Antoinette!

If any of you would like more links I would be more than happy to share more links! :)

This may sound odd, however I feel like by listing this link I feel like a sleazy car salesman wearing a bad suit, weird smelling after shave and an impressively horrible toupee, in other words, I feel like I am trying to exploit Marie Antoinette, is that normal? I don't quite think it is. :oops: :?

They're beautiful. I especially like the combination of blue and gold, but the strass is a bit too much. It doesn't feel like Antoinette if it's over the top, she was more elegant when it comes to jewelry, I believe.

Perhaps she was more extravagant with jewelry when she was younger, then she was more elegant as she matured. I pictured a young Marie Antoinette wearing those earrings.

Yes, I think you might be right. She matured in many ways when she became a mother.

This applies to most mothers and fathers who are involved with the child's or childrens' life, I believe once you have children there is less focus on yourself and more attention and energy towards your child/children.

Yes, but there are many queens - and other women - from that time who liked expensive and over the top jewelry even though they had children.

True. Touché. You do have a point. Although at some point in general I suppose you tend to be less extravagant.

Attached is the link to an article and picture of the "Hope Diamond", which was originally owned by Louis XIV and passed own to Marie Antoinette.

Dear Hellou_Librorum,

No, you are certainly not like a sleazy used car salesman just because you wanted to share something that you thought was pretty or interesting! On a side note, I thought you were Australian, but I see by your spelling that you are American. Is this correct? Anyway, have a great day and thanks for sharing.

Sincerely,
Ray
