MARIE ANTOINETTE’S PEAR SHAPED DIAMOND EARRINGS    These two large, pear-shaped diamonds weigh 14.25 and 20.34 carats respectively, and are originally from India or Brazil, the only significant sources of diamonds in the eighteenth century. The diamonds were supposedly set in earrings that belonged to Marie Antoinette, the queen of France who was guillotined in 1793 during the French Revolution.  The earrings appear to have stayed in the French royal family.
