Pendant set with pavé diamonds, in pink gold
The Pompon collection is inspired by Haute Couture – a theme to which Maison Boucheron returns time and again. It features a rose gold chain, with pavé-set diamond fringes that sparkle at the slightest movement. The diamonds appear to float in mid-air thanks to the use of the special serti aérien, a setting technique invented by Boucheron.More detail
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.
