Apollo Gallery at the Louvre – June 2020

The Apollo Gallery at the Louvre Museum, where the spectacular Crown Jewels collection and other precious imperial jewels are presented was established by Francis I, enriched mainly by Louis XVI, and stolen in 1792 to be found again shortly afterwards.

The diamonds were exhibited in display cases which were built in the 1980s and externally resembled the display cases of 1861, created by Charles Gasc.

The collection is divided into three major groups: the diamonds of the Old Regime before the French Revolution, the diamonds of the First French Empire until the July Monarchy and the jewels of Empress Eugenie.
