Les Moments B

La Castiglione

Known as “the Divine One”, the Countess of Castiglione was reputed to be the most beautiful woman of the century. A mysterious beauty, she lived in the basement apartments of 26 Place Vendôme thus sharing the Hôtel de Nocé townhouse with Frédéric Boucheron: she particularly loved his creations and soon became one of the Maison’s most important ambassadors.
A collector of men’s hearts, namely Napoleon III’s, she was showered with jewelry by those who fell madly in love with her. So as to preserve her beauty from the harsh light of day, she only left her apartments in the evening, adorned in her jewels that sparkled brightly under the lights of the Place Vendôme. Legend has it that, when she returned home and was alone, she would spend hours contemplating them, fascinated by the magical dazzle of the splendid stones.
