Where are the jewels of Caroline Bonaparte today?

I don’t know very much about the jewels of Caroline Bonaparte, who was one of Napoleon’s sisters and later Princess Murat and Queen of Naples.  There are a few pieces floating around the internet mostly cameo, coral, and lapis jewels that are attributed to her but I haven’t done enough research into the subject to know if that’s accurate.  If they did belong to Caroline then there doesn’t seem to be any one person that owns a large number of the jewels like a descendant of hers but instead they are scattered between different museums and private property.  Here’s my favorite of the jewels that are said to have belonged to Caroline.
