Trinket Tuesday: Empress Josephine’s Pearl Earrings

Trinket Tuesday

For today’s Trinket Tuesday, we return to the Louvre to admire the pear-shaped pearl and diamond earrings that once belonged to Empress Josephine. The earrings are beautiful and definitly something I’d wear today.


The museum acquired the pearl earrings in 1973. Today they are part of the permanent collection. For those who want to feel like an empress, the gift shop sells replicas!!
