Some amazing French pieces

Queen Marie-Amelie's sapphire tiara. Belonged to the counts of Paris until 1985 when they sold the set to the Louve where it is on display




It doesn't look as big as I've imagined before  Thinking

Golden discovery: Archaeologists discover astonishing haul 'linked to Alexander the Great' in network of tombs in Bulgaria
LINK



An archaeologist displays a gold tiara engraved with a lion's head and other animals found at the Bulgarian tomb. It is part of an incredible and historically-significant haul





History experts say the finds are likely to be remnants from the ritual burial of Gath ruler Kotela, one of the father-in-laws of Philip II of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great.

I always wonder how many old families have quietly switched out some of the diamonds with fakes in hard times.

If it was mine I will add a support frame which could make the pendant stands upright on my head instead of sits on my forehead  Thinking.
