Why buy when you can steal? No it's only a jest. That would be horrendous if anyone where to steal those pearls. I know I would buy them. So people buy 20 million dollar house that are brand new and not historical. Why not spend that money to purchase a piece of history? I would without a second thought.

Marie Antoinette gave the pearls to the Countess for safekeeping. Does that family really have any right to sell them?
