Whoever earns the most prestige will receive the coveted title of King’s Jeweller
Set in Paris, on the eve of the French Revolution, Queen's Necklace is a game of gem-selling, influence, and intrigue at the court. In the role of royal jewellers, 2 to 4 players compete to sell rare jewels to the Queen and her court. From the slums, where purse-snatchers and courtesans work their respective trades, to the inner salons of the Louvre, where confessors, royal astrologers, musketeers, and court favourites mingle and scheme in hushed conversations, the position of King's Jeweller has suddenly become a lot more dangerous! Players compete to craft and sell the most exquisite jewels to the Queen and her court. But they must be always aware of the ever-changing fashions and rarity of different gems (and may even try to manipulate it).
