Paris, on the eve of the French Revolution...
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 favorites mingle and scheme in hushed conversations the position of King's jeweler has suddenly become a lot more dangerous!
Queen's Necklace is a game of gem-selling, influence and intrigue at the Court. Two to four players compete in the role of Royal Jeweler to sell rare jewels to the Queen and her court.
Jeweler's loupe in hand, you must decide how best to spend your hard-earned ducats: on the acquisition of beautiful gems-- diamonds, emeralds, and rubies; or to buy the favors of the various court followers. After three years of craftsmanship, the jeweler who sells the most precious gems and builds the largest fortune will receive the coveted title of King's Jeweler and a place at the Court!

|This is one of those rare games that works really well with 2 or 3 players. You have the feel that you're in terrible trouble yourself, not realising that the other player(s) feels just as bad. So you just need to take a few calculated gambles and chances are you'll win.
|Queen's Necklace looks a bit like a children's game (mostly due to the included necklace) but the gameplay is actually more suited to adult gamers. It is a nice set-collection game where the value of your sets are highly dependent on the actions of the other players. This makes for a very unpredictable and highly psychological game - great for fans of bluffing/second guessing.
