Post Marie Antoinette's wedding ring
Does anyone know what her wedding ring looked like? I've searched for sketches or descriptions on the internet and in books but haven't been able to find anything. My husband and I are planning to renew our vows in Versailles on our 10th Anniversary, we will be wearing period costumes and I would love to have a replica of her ring made.

I don't know what her ring looks like - maybe someone else knows (?) - but isn't she wearing a ring on her left finger in this picture? Image
Maybe that's the ring...?

I've never heard of it. I'm sure it's gorgeous. I have only seen the basic crown jewels, and some that are kept at the museum of natural history or mineralogy? I forget what it's exactly called. I'll have a video up later of it.

I have read about it referred to as the "Hapsburg Sun" but I think it is mainly known as the "Tuscan" "the Grand Duke of Tuscany", "the Austrian Diamond", or the "Austrian Yellow Brilliant." http://famousdiamonds.tripod.com/florentinediamond.html

That is the florentine.
Marie Teresa possessed many yellow diamonds...
