Throughout history, jewels have proven that they can lead us astray, be won or lost at great expense, and, in their passing between hands, teach us a thing or two. Archaeological relics, cherished talismans, tokens of love, or accessories of the drama of bourgeois life, jewels are at the heart of countless stories.

Through a critical selection of over fifty works of art - including both famed masterpieces and little-known gems - Jewels in the Louvre celebrates these precious keepsakes and offers an original look at the collections of the world's finest museum.
