$500,000,000 : The Czarina Necklace

Description

During the era of Peter and Catherine the Great of St. Petersburg, and beyond, aristocrats were awash with jewels. The possession of gems was the measure of wealth. The epitome of grandeur was Empress Alexandra, the wife of Tsar Nicholas. She adorned a pink diamond necklace at the time the Bolsheviks launched the Russian Revolution of 1917. Today, the fourteen pink diamonds would be worth $500,000,000.Fearing the worst, the Czarina placed the necklace and a suitcase of rubies, emeralds and sapphires in a suitcase in the hands of a loyal Cossack to safely hide. The value was immeasurable. After the assignation of the royal family, including Anastasia, the youngest daughter, the suit case disappeared - thought to be in the keeping of a young lady; Elizaveta. Stalin and his thugs scoured the world for her, from Moscow to New York. After his death so did a General and the KGB, to no avail - until.
