(Sofia Coppola and Thomas Mars, achingly hip.)
It's Friday! All morning I've been listening to one of my favorite bands, French pop outfit Phoenix. You might have seen the lead singer (Thomas Mars) as he is Sofia Coppola's baby daddy and also had a bit part (along with the rest of the band) in her film Marie Antoinette. Coolest couple ever, perhaps?
Anyhow, that's my cue to segue into a particularly interesting bit of jewelry news that was on Yahoo! this fine morning:
"Marie Antoinette's historically important pearl, diamond and ruby necklace is shown in this Christie's images handout photo. A set of pearls once belonging to Marie Antoinette and taken to Britain by a friend for safekeeping will go on sale in December, and are expected to fetch up to $800,000."
Hey, if we all pool our money...
