The Latest High Jewellery Collection From Boucheron Puts A New Spin On The Roaring Twenties
Boucheron’s latest high jewellery collection, “Histoire de Style, Art Déco”, is a Roaring Twenties-inspired collection that reflects the era’s reputation as a champion of change, distilled through the eyes of the maison’s inescapably 21st-century creative director.
Claire Choisne explored Boucheron’s extensive art déco archive for the new collection. The convention defying era ushered in daring fashion and radical new feminism, and is today celebrated as a time when women—quite literally—started wearing the trousers.
This angular, more masculine aesthetic instilled art deco with an inherently fluid quality, one that the new collection uses to its advantage. “Histoire de Style, Art Déco” exudes a sense of freedom and an exploration of style, with versatile pieces that continue Boucheron’s commitment to the tradition of the multi-wear design—something of a signature for the maison.
The Cravate Émeraude is the perfect example of just this. The piece can be worn as a tie, necklace, brooch or collar jewel, transforming to suit either a masculine or feminine aesthetic. An 8.02 carat, emerald-cut Zambian emerald is encased in a pattern of paved diamonds, onyx and black lacquer, and set in white gold and platinum.
Other pieces in the collection—like the starkly contrasting Liseré Diamants—are symbolic of the bold, powerful statements commonly made in the era’s fashion and style. Available as a white gold ring or pair of pendant earrings, pear-shaped diamonds (weighing in at 5.27 and 3 carats respectively) are wrapped in a sleek black lacquer trimming, instilling a timeless design with a contemporary edge.
