Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

19 July 2013

As a new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection celebrating light, the Hôtel de la Lumière collection is a perfect expression of French High Jewelry tradition. All of the pieces find their inspiration in the archives, reinterpreting them in a contemporary style so that they are even more beautiful than their predecessors.

Thus, the Maison tells its own story: a story where light reigns. Eight chapters unveil eight worlds - each both distinct and inseparable from the others, like the eight facets of the Place Vendôme, the eight planets of the solar system and the eight realms of the circle of life.

Soleil radiant

What better way to open the collection than with the sun’s rays? The sun is the source of light, which gives women radiance, renews life and touches a jewel with eternal sparkle. The Soleil radiant (Radiant sun) set, symbolizing a game of hide and seek between the sun and the moon, is an airy, subtle, supple and delicate piece that caresses the skin like a ribbon of light or curls around a rock crystal box like a sun embracing the moon.

Paon de Lune

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

A virtuoso masterpiece, the multiple-wear nature of the Paon de Lune (Moon peacock) set and its changing, varied highlights make it ideal for transformation. Is it because the peacock has so often been a source of creativity for the Maison? In any case, the challenge here was to renew the link with tradition while fully expressing its unique radiance, rarity and majesty.

Cascade de Diamants

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

The Cascade de Diamants necklace is like a champagne pyramid where the champagne flows from the top and, amazingly, pours perfectly into each glass at the bottom. It pays tribute to César Ritz, with whom Frédéric Boucheron had a lot of things in common. It is a generous and bold set that refers to Boucheron’s love of the sparkling alliance of diamonds and crystal. It is a luminous treasure that reminds us that “Paris is a feast”!

Perles d’éclat

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

Legend has it that Dom Pérignon had wanted to banish the bubbles in the champagne of the 17th century before realizing that they were what defined the unique quality of the wine, giving it its beauty and aroma. The Perles d’éclat (Pearls of radiance) set evokes this “nectar of the gods” through its sparkle, effervescence and airiness.

Halo Delilah

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

Paying homage to its ancestors, a family of cloth drapers, the Maison Boucheron’s collections have regularly been inspired by Haute Couture. Using technique to enhance creativity, it goes beyond the boundaries of its craft to transform gold into a precious fabric, weaving it to make it as supple and light as a delicate drapé cloth. For the Halo Delilah set, inspired by a Jean Cocteau creation for an independent and confident woman, the thread disappears to enhance the sparkle of the stones.

Goutte de Lumière

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

Delicate yet imposing, elegant yet assertive, classic yet unconventional, the Goutte de Lumière (Drop of light) set stands out thanks to its radiance and its character. Inspired by Gabrielle Boucheron, this set perfectly illustrates the bohemian spirit; an artistic ideal based on freedom, light-heartedness, femininity and self-confidence.

Les Messagers Célestes

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

Boucheron is famous for its precious bestiary. Among it, insects are a favorite source of inspiration for the Maison, as knew full well the author Françoise Sagan who called them “the messengers” and collected them. These aerial emissaries, companions of the sun, are depicted in this new collection with an exquisite interplay of light and of transparency, expressed through a variety of precious materials, subtle color gradations and expert engraving.

Fleur du jour

Boucheron - A new chapter for the “Artisan du Rêve” collection: Hôtel de la Lumière

Inspired by the great tradition of multiple-wear jewelry dear to Boucheron, the Fleur du jour (Daylight flower) set is an open, “question mark” necklace and far more than just a jewel. It is a hymn to nature and to springtime; it is a tribute to the Belle Otero, it is an artisan’s interpretation of light and dark in an ode to painting and sculpture. www.boucheron.com
