About the Costume

This monster of a necklace was reproduced from sketches of the original diamond necklace produced around 1784 by the Parisian jewelers Boehmer et Bassenge. The necklace appeared as a prop in the Norma Shearer version of Marie Antoinette from 1938, and then made a second appearance in The Philadelphia Story from 1940, where it was worn by Virginia Weidler as Dinah Lord. Though certainly not the same necklace, the design was reproduced for 2001’s The Affair of the Necklace starring Hilary Swank as Jeanne St. Rémy de Valois.

If you have not read about the true story of the diamond necklace affair, I would highly recommend Antonia Fraser’s magnificent biography on Marie Antoinette entitled Marie Antoinette: The Journey. The book gives great insight into the event and is well worth the read.

A reproduction of the “Collier de la Reine” (at left) can be seen at the Château de Breteuil in Choisel, France.
