French Crown Jewels & Royal Tiara Cards

The surviving French Crown Jewels, principally a set of historic crowns now set with decorated glass, are on display in the Galerie d'Apollon of the Louvre, France's premier museum and former royal palace, together with the Regent Diamond, the Sancy Diamond and the 105-carat (21 g) Côte-de-Bretagne red spinel, carved into the form of a dragon. In addition, some gemstones and jewels (including the Emerald of Saint Louis, the 'Ruspoli' sapphire and the diamond pins of Queen Marie Antoinette) are on display in the Treasury vault of the Mineralogy gallery in the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle.
Do you love royal jewelry? The recent wedding in Britain put the world in a royal state of mind.

I thought you were showing the real jewels and then after I read a little more carefully, I see that they are your cards. They are absolutely lovely and certainly a keepsake.
When are you heading back to Paris?
