Consisting of eight multi-wear parures built from 24 individual pieces, Boucheron’s latest high jewellery offering, aptly named The Power of Couture, is a truly arresting collection. Revisiting the couture heritage of the house’s founder, Frederic Boucheron, ceremonial attire was the point of departure for creative director Claire Choisne. Through an ingenious application of rock crystal and diamonds, the substance of the jewellery is the focus, but Choisne doesn’t compromise on style. Adhering to a high-brow monochrome theme, rich with medals, buttons, embroideries and aiguillettes ornamented with white gold, rock crystal and diamonds, the baroque character of traditionally gold-tone decorations is tempered, lightening up the treasures with ease.
