The court heard that "not one" piece of jewellery has been recovered from the scam.
John Aspinwall QC, for Rahmoun, described his client as "by and large" a petty criminal. He denied that his client was a man of "great wealth."
Simohamed Rahmoun, 31, Farouk Dougui, 40, and Jabey Bathurst, 25, were sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court in west London for their role in using stolen credit cards and false identities to obtain luxury goods from firms, including Bonhams, Christie's and Gardiner Houlgate in Corsham, during the seven month scam in 2010.
Roger Carne, for Dougui, said his client was born in France and had served in the French Foreign Legion and as a boxer. He said Dougui had come to the UK around 12 years ago, and had traded at two markets as well as opening his own hairdressing shop.

Rahmoun had 28 previous convictions for 49 offences, including 17 for theft and similar offences and five for fraud and other similar charges.
The sentencing hearing comes after Dougui, of Charlton Park Road, south east London and Bathurst, of Brook Close, Ruislip, Middlesex, were found guilty of two charges of conspiracy to defraud by a jury following a trial at Isleworth Crown Court earlier this year.
"He lived an honest and industrious life until he was tempted into these matters in 2010," he told the court.
"You were rarely deterred, when a credit card was rejected for any reason, you would produce details for another.
"He was employed to collect and bring back the items . he can be seen as very much on the periphery of these conspiracies," he said.
Judge Phillip Matthews jailed Rahmoun who contacted auction houses using bogus names for six years in prison, describing his role as a "driving force" behind the conspiracy.

Barbara Goossens, 61, of Dudley Court, Upper Berkeley Street, central London, who was charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud, was acquitted by the jury.
These included a six month prison sentence in 2005 for obtaining services by deception and a three year jail sentence in 2006 for a series of burglaries, he said.

Members of a gang who fleeced leading auction houses and car dealerships in the UK out of nearly 750,000 worth of jewellery, watches and car parts were today jailed for up to six years.

Bathurst, 25, who the court heard was paid 50 for every collection he made of stolen goods, was jailed for four years.
Judge Matthews, addressing Rahmoun, said: "In my judgment, you were the driving force behind the conspiracies.
