Perhaps because it has been eclipsed by its famous name and the sparkle of its diamonds, too little is known even now about the rich and complex history of this great house of jewellery.

Its creations - from the classicism of the "jeweller to kings" to the radical inventions of style moderne - offer a fascinating testament to the evolution of taste and social codes.
