“Altogether we have between 140 and 150 carats of diamonds, which is an incredible amount. So the intrinsic value of these pieces is really enormous,” Kizamolo says.

You can see that she loves diamonds, you can see that it was a passion (of Marie Antoinette) and it was reflected in These two bracelets. They are a piece of history”, as quoted by “Euronews”.
