The Jodhpur necklace is directly inspired by a necklace that was part of the most fabulous order ever made on the Place Vendôme - the Maharaja of Patiala's commission in 1928 .
BOUCHERON created this necklace inspired by traditional Mughal jewelry: the structure is symmetrical.
The jewel is as precious on the back as it is on the front. Its “secret” side is exclusively destined for the pleasure of its owner.
To create the Jodhpur necklace, the Magician of Stones selected the most precious and sought-after Makrana marble, extracted from the Jodhpur quarry…the same milky white stone that was used in 1631 to build the fabulous Taj Mahal.
The diamond that is set on the central motif of the necklace has been chosen for its kite shape and its ideal proportions
The Jodhpur necklace is crafted following the great tradition of Indian prince’s jewelry, with a richly adorned underside.
The Maison included this feature to make the jewel perfectly reversible, paying homage to its tradition of multiple-wear pieces. Familiar with the excellence of creating jewels that are as beautiful on the back as they are on the front, the Hands of Light rose to the challenge of making a piece that was both imposing and supple, light and comfortable to wear.
For this Jodhpur-inspired theme, the Maison celebrates the spirit of the city rather than its figurative representation.
On the reverse side of the necklace, an enchanting light twinkles and plays on the impressionist composition of blue and white houses - the exquisite work of jewelry inlay expresses the enduring memory and wonder of Jodhpur. Its front is an ode to the pure lines and radiance of its immaculate marble palaces.
