Frédéric Boucheron, first of the great contemporary jeweller to open a boutique on the Place Vendôme, has always been able to show his visionary spirit through his jewelry collections. This creative daring revealed over the years the true jewelry icons of the Maison. Each of them embodies the freedom to create spirit. From the question mark necklace, through the eternal flowers, to the collection of animals: All creations reflect the Boucheron savoir-faire.
Even from the first years after the foundation of the Maison, Frédéric Boucheron breaks free of traditional jewelry-making, in which techniques he has become an expert. He was a visionary jeweler who endeavored to create unprecedented pieces that hugged the curves of the neck and enhance the supple and elegant bearing of women, in an homage to feminine beauty. The Point d’Interrogation necklace in one of the first illustrations of it. Designed for the first time in Frédéric Boucheron’s workshop, it is now the true signature of the Maison Boucheron.
Boucheron has found its philosopher’s stone in Nature supreme, unmatchable and unassailable. The jeweler melds with its source of inspiration to whom it offers eternal life. Following several years of research and innovation, via an entirely unprecedented secret process, Boucheron has succeeded in immortalising fleeting beauty. The nine Fleurs Éternelles which perfect this collection are a first in the Maison and High Jewelry’s history. Their birth exceeds the dreams of Frédéric Boucheron and crystalizes yesterday’s impossible.
Hedgehog, fox, parrot or tortoise... the extraordinary story of the Boucheron bestiary begins in its workshops in 1866. The place where nature is an inspiration. It is here that the collection of pieces between High Jewelry and works of art was created. Whether clinging to the ear or perched on a finger, each creature seems captured in motion. They seem to be captured in the material itself. Intense gazes of sapphire, emerald or ruby, coats sculpted in gold or studded with diamonds... each piece tells its story. Whether the animal represents strength or sensuousness, meekness or power, each woman can adopt the animal friend that will liberate her temperament and affirm her style.
