Necklace set with pavé diamonds, in pink gold
Born to clothier parents, Frédéric Boucheron retained his childhood memories of fabric and material.
Drawing on this education in finesse, he began to work with gold and precious stones with the same flexibility as the fabric and lace he was familiar with as a child.
The Couture theme continues to inspire the Maison Boucheron, which, through its timeless collections, invents the classics of tomorrow, such as the rose gold necklace paved with diamonds.
The appraisal of one of the world’s most fabulous treasures.
In 1930, Louis Boucheron was commissioned by the Shah of Iran to assess the Imperial Treasure of Iran: one of the world’s most fabulous treasures, comprising the most amazing precious stones and extraordinary objects Louis Boucheron had ever seen, namely a solid gold throne entirely set with precious gems and a terrestrial globe set with 51 336 stones.
It took Louis Boucheron several months to complete the appraisal and the final estimation was kept a secret forever after.
Louis Boucheron and his descendants were made the official Curators and Guardians of the Iranian Treasure, which remains in Tehran.
