The Du Barry Hoop Earrings named after the official mistress of Louis XV of France - Madame du Barry.
Du Barry had the Cinderella story- from a regular child, she became the mistress of the king. But it wasn't always easy. Du Barry wasn't recognized by the court so fast- it took 2 years until she was formally recognized. Until then Du Barry was very famous for her special services as a cortisone of the high society in Paris. Once recognized by the court, Du Barry enjoyed all the best of being a Marquise- the outstanding gown dressed, the masterpiece hairdo, and of course- the jewelry. The most outrages one was a 3 million liters diamond necklace!
On 8 December 1793, Madame du Barry was beheaded by the guillotine. On the way to the guillotine, she collapsed in the tumbrel and begged the indifferent crowd for help. Her last words were Encore un moment, monsieur le bourreau, un petit moment (One more moment, Mr. Executioner, I beg you!) and became an existentialism symbol and were quoted several times in Dostoyevsky book the idiot.
These Earrings are part of the LA MARQUISE collection. Inspired by spring in Paris, this collection designed with flower elements, gently combined with diamonds and gold parts, reminding us of the bees and flies that are part of the art nouveau age.
