Marie Antoinette Brooch

REF: 1-9-62-0008

This unique brooch pays homage to France's most frivolous and infuriating Queen, the ill-fated Marie Antoinette - who courted controversy throughout her short life and still attracts argument long after her gory death.

It seemed particularly fitting to Theo Fennell that Marie Antoinette’s hubris should be immortalised in the eternal nemesis of this piece. It is one of his collection of completely unique brooches entitled ‘Sic Transit Gloria Mundi’ or ‘How fleeting are earthly glories’.

From its first concept - a drawing in one of Theo’s ever present sketch books - to its metamorphosis through the studio and workshop located above the Theo Fennell flagship store in London, the brooch has been entirely handmade. It required the extraordinary and diverse skills of eight different craftsmen, and their lifetime of skill and dedication, to bring it to a finished and extraordinary piece of fine jewellery. This piece genuinely is, as real jewellery should be, a wonder for centuries to come.
