Yes, I do realise that it is the Florentine, but one of these yellow diamonds was said to be quite large. I do not know if Maria Theresa gave one to Marie Antoinette.

I read about the Austrian Brilliant, and it is said to have been inside the Austrian crown

Nor I, thought they did say that it has dissappeared some years ago. Meaning during MT's rule.

I am not sure how you saw this, I can't see it either. Do you mean the diamond clasp that Louis gave to her?

Oh dear Comte, it is in the second group of picture inserts after p.170, on the sixth page - the same page that has the medallions of Louis XVI and Antoinette and her velvet gambling purse embroidered with the royal arms and jetons.
