Marie Antoinette and Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire in Conversation Necklace

I read the wonderful biography of Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman last year and was struck by the idea of this extremely fashionable woman swishing about the grand houses and palaces of England and Europe causing a stir and inspiring other ladies to dress to impress. She was a friend of Marie Antoinette, another fascinating figure from history (who is depicted in a fabulously frou frou and candy film by Sophia Coppola.)

I like to imagine them linking arms and strolling around the Palace of Versailles (or more likely the Tuileries) gossiping and swapping tips on dressing up and this pendant depicts such a conversation.

You can buy this necklace from my online shop now!
