BOUCHERON

24-7 (Singapore) - - Contents -

Some­times, beauty lies in the sim­plest of con­cepts. How­ever, Boucheron’s sig­na­ture Qu­a­tre ring col­lec­tion is a great ex­am­ple of beauty be­ing more than the sum of its parts. Each Qu­a­tre ring is crafted us­ing four sep­a­rate gold bands – sculpted in­di­vid­u­ally, then as­sem­bledssem­bled with­out any weld­ing.

It is a skil­ful process made eas­ier thanks to the fi ne jew­eller’s age- old tech­niques and ex­per­tise. Boucheron ron was, af­ter all, the fi rst jew­eller of the fa­mous Place Ven­dome in Paris, where its mai­son opened in 1858. 8.

Cre­ated in 2004, the Qu­a­tre ring is still highly sought af­ter, thanks to the ex­quis­ite com­bi­na­tion of four bands in white, yel­low, rose and Boucheron “choco­late” gold. The ring is a story in it­self, in­spired by the ar­chi­tec­ture and beauty of the ccity of Paris. Yet, each of the bands tells its own tale.

The ribbed “gadroon” mo­tif, cre­ated by Fred­eric Boucheron in 1889,1889 is one of the brand’s most en­dur­ing en­graved de­signs. Its jux­ta­po­si­tion­jux of shiny bands placed side by side also shows off theth art of the jew­eller’s polishing tech­nique. Like the City of Lights, the di­a­mond-pave band dazzles, thanks to the se­lec­tion of only the best stones and the skill of Boucheron’s di­a­mond-set­ters.

Mod­ern and graphic, the band sport­ing the iconic Clous de Paris mo­tif is a refi ned nod to the cob­ble­stones of Paris and the Place Ven­dome. Boucheron’s en­gravers use a pre­cise tech­nique to carve each facet of the mo­tif.

Adding the fi­nal touch is the fourth band, which usesses the gros­grain mo­tif. The chis­elled gold is said to evoke the city’s manyny bridges.

To­day, the Qu­a­tre ring col­lec­tion comes in dif­fer­entent edi­tions, in­clud­ing the Clas­sique in white, yel­low, rose and choco­late gold. The Fol­lies range is made up of two bands, in­steadad of four. The White Edi­tion, launched in 2011, uses the same ame white, yel­low and pink bands as the Clas­sique, but sub­sti­tutes the brown gold in the Clous de Paris s band for white ce­ramic.

The Black edi­tion, which was cre­ated last year, has be­come a best­seller, with its white gold and Boucheron black gold.
