Marie Antoinette's earrings

Aren't they gorgeous! 
Reputedly once the property of Marie Antoinette these pear shaped diamond earrings were later given to the Empress Eugenie. 
They subsequently found their way into the hands of Russian royalty, Cartier, Harry Winston and Marjorie Merriweather Post and finally were presented by her daughter Eleanor Barzin to the Smithsonian in 1964
