Ring set in pink gold with diamonds
The Toi et Moi Serpent Bohème ring celebrates the love between Frédéric Boucheron and his wife Gabrielle: it is a reminder of the snake necklace he gave her in 1888 which was also a symbol of protection.
The drop motif bordered by gold beads adds exquisite detail and expresses the expert precision of the jeweler.
The heads of the snakes cross to symbolize the eternal bind between two lovers.
Frédéric Boucheron is born in 1831 into a family of clothiers. He breaks with family tradition at a young age to open his jewelry shop. Having learnt much about delicacy in materials, he begins to make his gold work as supple as the fabrics and lace of his childhood. Success is immediate and soon the whole of Paris is rushing to the door of his Palais Royal boutique. In 1893, he is the first jeweler to start trading in Place Vendôme, making this place a showcase of savoir-vivre, savoir-faire and French elegance that has no equal in the world. It is Frédéric Boucheron's unique ability to capture the zeitgeist that also leads him to invent new ways of wearing jewelry. His success spreads abroad and the order books start to include the names of members of Royal families and later of Hollywood's biggest stars.Discover all of the Boucheron moments
