The Crown Jewels

One of the most famous jewelry auctions in the world was held in 1887, at the Louvre. The auction of the French Crown Jewels was referred to at that time as “the sale of the century”. Frédéric Boucheron, the only Frenchman amongst the attendance of the world’s most important jewelers, managed to acquire 31 diamonds and among them the celebrated Mazarin diamonds weighing respectively 18 and 16 carats, along with one of Empress Eugénie’s most beautiful jewels, for which the auction stakes skyrocketed. When word was out that Frédéric Boucheron had bought this sumptuous stone, the whole of Paris wondered who had given the acquisition order. It turned out that Frédéric had acquired it for himself so as to set it on a ring for his wife, Gabrielle, as a pledge of his eternal love. Ever since, Boucheron has been the jeweler of love and tradition has it that the most passionate of men go to the Maison to choose an engagement ring.
