Königin Marie von Hannover anlässlich eines Kostümballs, ihre Robe ist dekoriert mit echten Juwelen und Schmuck, entlang des Corsagensaums hat sie ein Perlenhalsband angebracht, das in Zick-zack-Form verläuf und eine eckige Girlande von Diamanten über eine Rubin besetzte Linie.
Daran befestigt ist jeweils eine Perle.
Ihre Schwiegertochter, Herzogin Thyra von Cumberland trägt den Schmuck später als Halsband und ist deutlich zu erkennen.

1862 hat die französische Firma Marret & Beaugrand auf der Pariser Messe ein gleichartiges Kollier vorgestellt, es könnte das aus dem Hannoverschen Königshaus sein.

Nun sind nach über 200 Jahren, ein weitere Halskette aufgetaucht. Die Kette soll 1849 in dieser Art gefertigt worden sein, jedoch die Perlen haben eine längere Geschichte, sie gehörten angeblich der Königin von Frankreich Marie-Antoinette.

Queen Marie of Hannover | Pearl Necklace

Queen Marie of Hannover owned a very special pearl necklace in zig-zag design, she wore it on a costumball as bordure at her gown.
Later her daughter-in-law, Princess Thyra, Duchess of Cumberland, wore this pearl necklace on her neck. It´s know that Beaugrant Paris had made this kind of jewel and displayed it on the exhibition in 1862 at Paris.

 

Queen Marie-Antoinettes Pearls

The large pictured historically important natural pearl, diamond and ruby necklace,above, is sayed the the pearls belonged to Marie Antoinette (1755-1793)

This elegant necklace which was made in 1849 has a fringe of twenty one graduated drop-shaped grey natural pearls, each suspended from an old-cut diamond collet surmount to the diamond ribbon which intertwines the ruby collar. The collar is set with twelve button-shaped grey natural pearls which are mounted in gold.

The pearls, which date to circa 1780, is sayed that belonged to Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France whose name is synonymous with extreme extravagance, the height of the French Revolution and death by guillotine in 1793 on thebeaugrand perlencollier precept of treason.
These sumptuous pearls were given by Marie-Antoinette to Lady Sutherland, Elizabeth Leveson-Gower, the wife of the British ambassador (1790-92) Lord George Leveson-Gower for safekeeping.
Lady Elizabeth, Countess of Sutherland, is believed to have aided King Louis XVI and his family’s failed flight from France on 20 June 1791, during the French Revolution (1789-1799).

While Marie Antoinette was imprisoned in the convent of the Feuillants, ‘Without clothes or money, for everything even to her purse and watch had been lost in the Tuileries, she had to depend on the charity of friends. The British ambassadress Lady Sutherland, who had a son of the same age as the Dauphin, had sent them clothes and linen.’ (Joan Haslip, Marie Antoinette (London 1987), p. 265).
This was reportedly the last gesture of kindness shown to the
doomed Queen. Prior to Lady Sutherland’s departure, as part of the embassy’s hurried withdrawal in August 1792, Marie Antoinette gave Lady Sutherland a bag of pearls and diamonds for safe keeping. Anyone caught in possession of this jewellery risked severe punishment.
However, the wife of the British Ambassador had diplomatic immunity and was one of the few who could be trusted to return the jewels when, on 20 June 1791 King Louis XVI and his family made their celebrated attempt to escape France, the Countess did 'all in her power to assist their flight by furnishing disguises to Queen Marie Antoinette and the little Dauphin' . However, the attempt was abortive and the Royal family were brought back to Paris.

The diamonds were subsequently fashioned into the Sutherland diamond necklace, whilst the pearls were mounted, on the occasion of the marriage between Lady Elizabeth’s grandson, George Granville William Sutherland-Leveson-Gower and Anne Hay-Mckenzie on 20 June 1849.
This exceptional necklac ewill be offered at Christie’s London in December.
