The peacock feather has been at the heart of Boucheron’s creations and archives since almost 160 years. Inspired by the ethereal grace of the “peacock feather”, Frédéric Boucheron created the famous “Point d’Interrogation” necklace in 1883 – the first of a long line. Since then, the Maison’s high jewelry collections have regularly featured new takes on this stunning feather imagined by the design studio headed up by Claire Choisne.
A free-spirited creator, Frédéric Boucheron knew how to suffuse every piece in his collections with a touch of lightness. Almost a century later, the designs coming out of the workshops still carry in them the expression of freedom. The enamelling technique developed by Boucheron gives life to a strong and ethereal peacock’s feather.

In its floral and plant designs, Maison Boucheron favors chance over fate, asymmetry over geometric formalism and organicity over order. Beneath the arcades of the Palais Royal where he opened his first boutique in 1858, Frédéric Boucheron could observe the wild ivy that had then conquered the city. Ivy has featured in the Maison’s collections ever since and has been reinvented with every new creation. The five new creations depict ivy, bejeweled and bold, twining around the wrist and neck, running between two fingers and adorning the ear.
Nature has been an endless source of inspiration for the Maison Boucheron since it was founded in 1858. Over the years, Nature's diversity, aesthetic perfection and rich symbolism have engendered creations as diverse as they are outstanding. This year Boucheron presents the proud and wild Lierre de Paris line, which includes a pendant. The setting on white gold serves to highlight the veins of the leaves, as well as the characteristic lightness of the plant world.
