L'Artisan du Rêve

Opalescent Serpent

Frédéric Boucheron one day gave his wife a present ; a necklace in the shape of a serpent, which promised her a happy life. Since that day, it has become a symbol of love and protection, a pledge of enduring happiness for all Boucheron women. This year, the serpent is re-invented, shedding its skin for a new life. The icon of the past is reborn for the Serpent Opalescent set in a modern and striking light. The reinterpretation of a great classic of the Maison, combined with the use of new materials, colors and technical expertise make this multiple- wear piece a signature Boucheron creation.  
Diamond, opal and rock crystal 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.
