L'Artisan du Rêve

Plume de Paon

It was a peacock feather that inspired Frédéric Boucheron, in collaboration with the head of his atelier Paul Legrand, to imagine, draw and create the point d’interrogation necklace. The year was 1883 and this major innovation soon became an icon of the Maison Boucheron, with its fresh new approach to femininity. Indeed, far from sitting tightly around a woman’s neck, which obviously constrains her movements, this necklace gives her freedom while sumptuously adorning her. The Plume de Paon jewelry set is its re-incarnation.
Emerald and diamond necklace.

The savoir-faire

Wax sculpting, precious metal work, stone setting and polishing: these steps are part of the creation process of a jewel and require an expert level of know-how in order to make a unique piece that has eternal sparkle. The piece comes to life in the “Hands of Light” of the Maison’s Artisans, and carries a touch of soul that will be passed on through time from generation to generation.

The gouaché

With the utmost precision and refinement, the Maison Boucheron’s designers create what will be used as the architect’s plan for the Maison’s artisans. The gouaché drawings are produced in real scale and the colors are applied to stay on the surface so as to create an impression of light, volume and transparency. The drawing will serve as the unique model throughout the whole production process.

The inspiration

The L’Artisan du Rêve collection is a journey through the Maison’s archives. A path of discovery into Boucheron’s rich history, each jewelry set is inspired by heritage, a favoured theme or a particular technique, as an emblem of the Maison’s expertise, savoir-faire and creative vitality.
