Marie Antoinette pendant fetches $49m, shattering estimate

A pearl and diamond pendant owned by Marie Antoinette before she was beheaded during the French Revolution sold for $36 million (S$49.5 million) at an auction on Wednesday, shattering its pre-sale estimate of up to $2 million. The Sotheby s auction at an ultra-luxurious hotel on the banks of Lake Geneva saw feverish bidding for a 10-piece collection owned by the ill-fated queen, featuring jewels unseen in public for two centuries.
