Napoleon Bonaparte is rumored to have gifted one of his mistresses a collection of dazzling diamonds that is now available for $1.25 million at M.S. Rau. Handcrafted sometime between 1810 and 1820, the extraordinary convertible set can be turned into a necklace, a bracelet, or a tiara depending on what kind of bling your beloved desires. It has been kept in a box by Lambert Vormus, which suggests it was made by the famous Parisian jeweler.
