PLACE VENDOME, BEHIND THE SCENES
Security is an obsession
For nearly 200 years, Place Vendôme has been the sanctuary of the greatest jewellers. The luxury pieces that have made its reputation are made in places that are kept confidential, precious stones of inestimable value are handled here. Understandably, craftsmen work in the greatest secrecy.
Wealthy customers like the conveniency of nearby palaces with their exceptional service.
With such fortunes in the area, security on Place Vendôme is paramount. After several robberies, it has become an obsession. An anti-hold-up plan has been put in place, and the neighbourhood is under close surveillance.
