One of Boucheron’s master crafts­men at work

of Flora Swirling around the wearer's wrist, Boucheron’s Plume de Paon High Jew­ellery time­piece pushes its dar­ing char­ac­ter even fur­ther. Tak­ing on new and unique cre­ative chal­lenges, the French jew­eller em­ploys the use of mar­ble – a ma­te­rial rarely used in High Jew­ellery. Pro­cured from Jodh­pur’s most valu­able and sought-af­ter Makrana quar­ries, the time­piece's curves of a feather are sub­tly high­lighted with white mar­ble mar­quetry, while di­a­monds, pre­cious white gold, and the hon­ey­comb open-work back lend sublime el­e­gance that fas­ci­nates.

The Tem­ple Métiers d’Art Flo­rilège- Re­nealmia watch, Vacheron Con­stantin For the 40th an­niver­sary of the Ital­ian jew­eller’s Bvl­gar­iBvl­gari col­lec­tion, the spirit of Rome was brought to the fore­front with new rings, bracelets, and neck­laces, adding to the au­dac­ity and beauty of the city’s an­cient aes­thetic. Call­ing upon the re­gal hues of car­nelian reds, mala­chite greens, lapis lazuli blues, shim­mer­ing mother- of-pearl, and com­ple­mented with di­a­monds, the new bold de­signs marry the past with mod­ern el­e­ments. With its em­blem­atic cir­cu­lar shape and sim­plis­tic de­sign, the re­cently launched col­lec­tion rep­re­sents a new Bul­gari,

set for the 21st cen­tury woman.
