Chal­leng­ing Na­ture

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Best Of Life -

With the un­veil­ing of the three lines of the Na­ture Tri­om­phante high jew­ellery col­lec­tion—Nat­u­ral­iste, Sur­re­al­iste and Al­chemiste—Boucheron and its ar­ti­sans prove they could give Mother Na­ture a run for her money. Al­chemiste, for ex­am­ple, in­cludes the stun­ning Eter­nal Flow­ers se­ries of nine rings cre­ated with some of the most com­plex—and se­cre­tive—tech­niques the mai­son has ever de­vel­oped. Real pe­tals, pis­tils and sta­mens from anemones, pan­sies, hy­drangeas and peonies were used to recre­ate the flow­ers in per­ma­nent form with the ex­per­tise of French artist Claire Boucl. The com­po­nents were scanned and sta­bilised us­ing a chem­i­cal-free tech­nique, and were then com­bined with pre­cious stones and mounted on ti­ta­nium. The cre­ation of these im­mor­tal fl ow­ers marks a new chap­ter in nat­u­ral­is­tic jew­ellery.
