Boucheron Haute Joaillerie Spring 2010

Violet Sapphire, Diamond and Gold Necklace, Price Upon Request, Boucheron Paris
On January 28, 2010, the house of Boucheron presented a dazzling array of jewelry, being one of the haute jewelers to present during haute couture week. A bevy of baubles, rings, earrings, and other treasures, inspired by Paris’s Belle Époque, glimmered making it hard not to stare. A feast of rubies, emeralds, diamonds, and sapphires where nestled on tables, like a colorful selection of French pastries. The jewelry had whimsical, yet elegant feel, keeping up with the houses extreme luxury and haute couture spirit. The intricate casting of gold and inlays of diamonds was a sure sign that hundreds of hours and manual labor was put into these jewels. One piece in particular, a necklace, bowed a rare 25 carat sapphire, in a swirl of floral motifs. –David Pedroza
