Boucheron

A leading French jewelry firm, founded in 1858 in the Palais Royal, Paris, by Frédéric Boucheron (1830-1902) and now having its main establishment at 26 Place VendOme, Paris, with branches in London and elsewhere.

Frédéric Boucheron was succeeded by his son Louis (1874-1959), in turn succeeded by his son Gerard (b. 1910), whose son Alain (b. 1948) is now active in the business. The London office, established in 1907, is at 180 New Bond St. In 1960 the firm at the request of the Shah of Iran, set up in Tehran the display of the Royal Jewelry Collection.

Boucheron is noted as a specialist in gems as well as a designer of luxury and medium-priced jewelry.
