Boucheron celebrates imperial Russia with a collection of jewels that would have loved by the Tsars ♦︎
Between France and Russia, before and after the October Revolution, there has always been a very close link. Escapeed aristocrats or revolutionaries in exile have found shelter in the tolerant Transalpine state, along with musicians and painters. In Russia the official language of the nobility was French, idiom used in the Tsar’s court and in the good society. The jewelery industry has also maintained a privileged channel between Paris and Moscow. Boucheron remembers it, with the Hunt Impérial jewelry collection. The luxury here walks on the soft, silent snowy surface that covers the big country, bridge between the West and the East, when the winter starts.
Boucheron, more, was the first French jeweler to open a venue in Moscow in 1897 when the tsars still reigned. Boucheron has revisited three of its main themes: Nature (the Lumiere de Nuit line describes the aesthetics of the Nordic landscape), Couture (Femmes Boréales idealizes the beauty of women’s of North), and Architecture (The Anneau d’Or is inspired by the imperial cities of Russia, Moscow and Saint-Petersburg). The pieces are extraordinary, starting with Baïkal, a necklace-corset with an oval aquamarine of 78.33 carats, woolen stones and cultured pearls, diamond paved, white gold. Other jewels, however, remind the snow crystals, or the onion domes of the Kremlin. Margherita Andorno
