BOUCHERON

Solitaire (Singapore) - - STYLE -

French lux­ury jew­eller Boucheron has al­ways had a love affair with ar­chi­tec­ture. And in the most iconic way pos­si­ble, the Mai­son has im­mor­talised the streets of Paris in its sig­na­ture Qua­tre Col­lec­tion. First in­tro­duced in 2004, the col­lec­tion picks up on street scenes and ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails you would see as you nav­i­gate around the city of love.

Qua­tre aptly de­scribes the four stack­able bands that show­case the many facets of Paris through its geo­met­ric pat­terns — gor­geous cob­ble­stone streets, grandiose build­ings, a dra­matic stair­case, or per­haps a re­flec­tion of light on the Seine River. The im­pres­sive pat­terns form Boucheron’s cap­ti­vat­ing mo­tifs and are con­stant re­minders of the beauty of Paris.

Con­sid­ered to be the most iconic col­lec­tion from Boucheron, the Qua­tre Col­lec­tion fea­tures four of the brand’s iconic styles: the Dou­ble Gadroon, cre­ated by Frédéric Boucheron in 1889; the Clous de Paris,

rem­i­nis­cent of the clicking of high heels on the cob­ble­stones of the Place Vendôme; the Di­a­mond,

which fea­tures a one-of-a-kind ‘mirror-set­ting’ tech­nique; and the Gross­grain, which is achieved through high pre­ci­sion ham­mer­ing and chis­elling.

Over the years, the ring has con­tin­ued to re-in­vent it­self, as ev­i­denced by its many in­ter­pre­ta­tions. The lat­est ad­di­tion to this om­nipo­tent fam­ily is the Red Edi­tion, which uses red ce­ramic for the first time and was launched in 2018 as a sparkling sym­bol of Boucheron’s ex­pan­sion into the East.

Founded by Frédéric Boucheron in Paris in 1858, the House’s first bou­tique opened in the Ga­lerie de Valois un­der the ar­cades of the Palais Royal. Over the years, the Mai­son has built a last­ing legacy and be­came an icon of lux­ury.
