FLEUR ETERNELLE: Boucheron pushes the boundaries of High Jewelry by using real flower petals. The Nature Triomphante High Jewelry by Boucheron gives Nature eternal life.
Pursuing the dream of making ephemeral beauty eternal, French jeweller Boucheron unveiled the Nature Triomphante High Jewelry range.
Boucheron pushes the boundaries of High Jewelry by offering real flower petals transformed in jewels. The Fleurs Éternelles (eternal flowers), from the Nature Triomphante collection, were made in collaboration with an artist-petalist, using a secret and innovative technique. The petals are scanned one by one, to capture their volumes at the finest detail. Then each petal is stabilized without pigments or chemicals, and mounted on the flower volume with great care to protect their original beauty.
“The Nature Triomphante collection is a tribute, to the beauty of nature first, whose diversity, ideal aesthetic and symbolic abundance offer endless sources of inspiration to BOUCHERON. Next, it is a tribute to the innovative and free spirit of the Maison, which has never ceased transcending the jewelry codes to craft unique pieces of stunning audacity,” explained Maison Boucheron.
This flower ring, from Les Fleurs Éternelles series forms two corollas of natural petals delicately paired with jonquil diamonds. In the Fleurs Éternelles ring series Boucheron uses the most innovative technique to stabilize real flower petals, making their beauty everlasting.
The Fleur Éternelle ring in nine variations is set with a 3.35-carat spessartite garnet echoing the mandarin tones of its petals. Selected for the brilliance and subtlety of their palette, the natural petals are stabilized and mounted on a scanned titanium base.
To capture the very essence of natural beauty, the drawing process of each element has been partly replaced by the use of 3D scanning technology, so the Lierre Givré necklace, for example, is the very detailed restitution of a natural ivy branch.
The Fleur de Nuit tanzanite High Jewelry necklace is centered with a 1.59-carat pear-cut diamond, its diamond encrusted petals depict the Milky Way in a midnight blue sky.
Set with an exceptional 42.96-carat pink cushion tourmaline and more than 260 mother-of-pearl petals, the Nuage de Fleurs masterpiece necklace offers subtle nacreous hues of pink, purple, white and yellow.
This Fleur Éternelle is set with a 4.16 carat Padparadscha sapphire chosen so its color perfectly matches the natural stabilized petals of the flower. Its titanium pistils are studded with black spinels, and the underside of the leaves are set with yellow and violet sapphires.
