Dress belonging to Empress Josephine, 1810s, “This silk tulle dress is exquisitely embroidered with motifs of carnations and other flowers in silver thread. It is most probably an example of ‘remontage’ (refitting): the bust does not match Josephine’s measurements exactly and has almost certainly been adjusted to fit someone else. Indeed, Josephine often ‘reviewed’ her wardrobe: once a year she would go through her closets and give away the garments she no longer wore to her entourage.”

Engagement ring given by Napoleon Bonaparte to Rose Tascher de la Pagerie de Beauharnais prior to their wedding on March 9th 1796.   Two tear-shaped stones - a diamond and a sapphire - are placed in a gold setting that was sentimentally called toi et moi (you and me) in the 18th century. Each gemstone weighs just under a carat.  The ring was passed down through the family of Hortense de Beauharnais  until recently being sold at auction for $949,000.
