Well, the fascination exercizise by MA's charactìhter is due also to the fact that her personality had different aspect...and she can be seen in different ways!

I have seen in person the replica of the diamond necklace and to me it is gaudy and my image of MA would not have permitted her to have worn something so ugly, just my opinion though.

Speaking of the Collier itself, I am purchasing a replica of it.
Don't ask why, but their is something about it.

Personally, the necklace wouldn't even fit my image for DuBarry, it's more...

Of course the replica I saw was described as white sapphires and metal, I would imagine diamonds in white gold would be more stunning. Comte, where may I ask would one aquire a replica?

You can make one yourself I guess if you're really that determined.

Hello Hello, Comte, HRH, Miss Molly, There is a french site called Aux Armes de France et de Navarre- under the topic Bijoux de Marie Antoinette. The site can be translated from Google. They have a copy of the necklace for sale. but the price is to be e mailed to the inquirer. They have a lot of things on this site not available on the museum site, like the medals worn on the mens sashes, and for the Comte, a bust of MA that is in coral replica. It seems to be pretty tall too. Pardon me for not sending the link, as I am having trouble doing this.

I also think the necklace didn't match MA's taste...it was too heavy and pompous! She liked simpler things.
