Great movie as well as a great question about the necklace. Conducted some research on this today and after quite awhile found a mention in USA Today written last year. In the article it is stated that "Uncle Ferry's Klimt paintings and Altmann's diamond earrings and necklace were seized that way. Researcher Lillie recently found that the forfeited jewels later were bought by Hermann Goering, Adolf Hitler's top deputy. Altmann got them back after Goering was captured by the Allies in 1945." http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/2004-02-23-nazi_x.htm
