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.
The beauty and delicacy of the peacock’s feather (plume de paon) motif is captivating. It has been explored by the Workshop for almost 130 years. Worked with the greatest precision, the peacock’s feather seems to come to life as the wearer moves.

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.
For Boucheron, Nature is free, proud and wild. And when perceived in its truth, its beauty is magnified. This year the Maison presents a Lierre de Paris line in white gold and diamonds. This new ring embodies the indomitable nature of ivy; its leaves subtly settle on the finger, creating a look that is as elegant as it is wild.
