 Marie Antoinette's Crown

Those are the surviving french crown jewels in the Louvre.
I know the large one on the right was Louis XIV's, but I'm not sure about the others. I always assumed the sapphire tiara was Marie Antoinette's because I saw a doll-sized copy of it on ebay once by the franklin mint.

Okay, I believe the pearl and emerald tiaras were Empress Josephine's, the crown on the left was either Empress Eugenie's or Napolean III's, the big crown on the right was original ROYAL one, and everything in the middle was MA's.

Are there any pictures of her wearing the tiara?

I doubt it. it was probably more of a show-peice, as it certainly would have toppled off her pouf! :lol:

I wanted to see those while I was on summer study aboard in Paris!! Le problem: that section was closed to renovation. :(

During my last visit in january at Tuileries I've read that the blue parure was created for Marie Thérèse, MA's daughter.
