They were encrusted in a silver setting studded with smaller crystals and were the main highlight in the collection of the French crown. After the revolution, these unique earrings belonged to several famous ladies, and their setting were replaced with lighter platinum one. Today they, along with the original silver settings are the property of the Smithsonian Museum. The cost of this jewelry is not exactly known, but we are sure that it's a fortune!
