Fit for a queen: Marie Antoinette's jewelry up for auction


Jewelry that once belonged to Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France before the French Revolution, will be going up for auction next month.

And before the auction, the collection is making stops on an international tour where members of the public can view and even try on the royal pieces.

The jewels once belonging to the ill-fated queen include a diamond and pearl pendant with a value estimated between $1 and $2 million, a pearl and diamond necklace valued between $200,000 to $300,000 and a diamond double-ribbon-bow brooch valued between $50,000 to $80,000.
