Boucheron is one of the most sought-after jewellery makers at auction. Establishing his first jewellery salon in 1858 in the Palais Royal, Boucheron was the first jeweller to set up his shop at the famous Place Vendôme in 1893, and still operates to this day. Frédéric Boucheron was renowned as an expert in precious gemstones and as an exceptional goldsmith, creating breathtaking fine jewellery for the elites of the late 19th century. Following his death in 1902, his descendents took over the business and continued to produce sensational diamond and gem-set jewellery and objet d'art. Henri Vever documents some of Boucheron's earlier work in his landmark book 'French Jewellery of the 19th Century.' As the firm has grown exponentially over the years, the Maison Boucheron has acquired branches in London, Japan and Moscow to name a few. Boucheron was purchased in 2000 by the Gucci group. Boucheron pieces truly document the history of jewellery design and as such are highly coveted at auction, with top prices achieved for signed pieces, and pieces in their original fitted cases.
