In 1810, Napoleon I of France divorced the Empress Joséphine, as she proved to be incapable of producing an heir. He re-married two months later to Archduchess Marie Louise of Austria. Within a year, Marie Louise bore a son. To celebrate, in June 1811 Napoleon I commissioned the Napoleon Diamond Necklace from the Parisian jewellery firm Nitot et Fils, at a cost of 376,274 French francs. This sum was the equivalent of the Empress's entire annual household budget.

THE AMETHYSTS OF CATHERINE II THE GREAT ~ In 1750 Russians found amethysts in The Urals. Some amethysts were used by jewelers to create jewels to Empress Elizabeth I and Grand Duchess Catherine (future CII). Catherine ordered two pairs of girandole earrings from Siberian amethysts, as the color was very fashionable. The Romanovs saved Catherine's jewelry but after Revolution, in 1927 The Bolsheviks sold these earrings to Mr SJ Philips for £135. He took them to The UK.
