Carrera Y carrera
MORE THAN 130 YEARS OF JEWELRY TRADITION
Its jewelry tradition and exceptional craftsmanship have made Carrera y Carrera one of the international references among jewelry brands, renowned as one of the 30 most prestigious jewelry firms in the world. The brand has become an icon of luxury due to its unique style, imaginative designs, and magnificent jewelry pieces where gold and precious stones come to life.
The Ispahan suite is a daring mixture of Iranian architecture with highly creative and adventurous jewellery techniques. The bold blues of the tiles which decorate the great mosque of Isfahan are the inspiration for this suite, with the Maison Boucheron reflecting this daring approach to design in the finished piece. Breaking with traditional methods, the rock crystal has been cut as if it were a diamond, allowing the subtle shades of blue to play with the light and glimmer magically against the stones, similar to the sunlight shimmering down on the roof of the Isfahan mosque.
The suite has also been designed in hematite, a stone rarely used in High Jewellery. The freedom of the master craftsmen to play around in this way with unusual volumes, shapes and stones is a journey in itself of a different kind a dream of something new, inspired by the Maison’s fascinating history and ties to Persia.
SPLENDEUR DE RUSSIE
The Splendeurs de Russie is an iconic Boucheron creation — a necklace which can be worn as a tiara. The graceful circular choker is a monochrome rainbow of radiance with baguette cut and round diamonds that open out like droplets of water before the cold Russian air turns them to ice. This graceful yet daring design shimmers gloriously — a reminder that all women are princesses.
The Ricochet necklace evokes those diminishing, fleeting circles left in the wake of a pebble skimmed off the water. With the momentary ripples replaced here by spellbinding sapphires, diamonds and rock crystal, this transient moment is captured in time forever, creating a magnificent effect as an ode to this simplistic part of nature.
PINCEAU DE CHINE
Calligraphy is the ancient Chinese art par excellence: the art of writing well; saying it all in one stroke; varying one’s movements; finding the purest gesture; transforming slowness into grace, and vitality into strength; putting the most meaning into the minimum of signs. The brush is an extension of the calligrapher’s hand and it plays an essential role. In fact, many legends abound with stories of magic brushes with mighty powers. This Pinceau de Chine chapter celebrates this purity and magic.
FLEUR DES INDES
The Eternity necklace is an ode to simplicity. Created by Frédéric Boucheron in 1883, the Point d’Interrogation necklace celebrates purity: the purity of the curved line without a clasp; the purity of the material which is both flexible and firm; the purity of this shape at the centre of which is the woman.

QUATRE WHITE EDITION
In 2011 Boucheron launched its Quatre White Edition, adding a touch of freshness to the dazzle of its golds. It did this using ‘hyceramic’, an original formula that gives a shine and additional texture to white ceramic, thereby sublimating the motif. Stunningly modern, the White Edition has shaken up dogmas and refreshed ideas.
QUATRE RADIANT EDITION
If purity were a ring, it would probably be the new Quatre Radiant Edition, the flagship piece of the collection, launched in fall 2013. White or yellow monochrome, the gold ‘steps aside’ to highlight the uniqueness of the motifs dear to the Maison Boucheron. The band of diamonds is slipped in between those of gold, sublimating the precious metal with the radiance of its stones. More graphic, more vibrant, more exclusive, the new Radiant sets itself apart with its solar strength and its design of unparalleled purity. Simply intense. Intensely sublime.
Although it was highly innovative, the first Quatre collection created in 2004 was immediately viewed as a classic. A true variation on gold, white, yellow and pink, the rings come together in a round of precious metals. Enter gold with a brown PVD coating as the counterpoint in this work of an golds where the light is already dancing. Each motif plays its part with mastery and completes this bold and original ensemble.
QUATRE BLACK EDITION
In 2012, through a mysterious mirror effect, the Black Edition was created and gold was revealed in Black. The “Clous de Paris” became glistened with black: edgy and chic at the same time. Black as the depth of profound glance. Black as Paris can be when night falls on the City of Light. But even more graphic. Even more offbeat. Even more universal.
Both timeless and eternal, the Quatre ring changes according to the desire, personality and mood of the person wearing it. It assumes different colors and materials in order to continually renew itself and surprise every time.

Just like the Boucheron woman.
The Pansy has been an icon of the Maison Boucheron since 1875 and it now blossoms at the heart of a new line dedicated exclusively to it, the ‘Pensée de diamants’.
‘Pensée de Diamants’ is now making this symbol shine once more. Pendants, rings, studs, necklaces and watches: in each piece, the jewelry craftsmen have recreated the flower’s depth, while maintaining its lightness and delicacy. A subtle play of light makes the Pensée even more realistic. True to its reputation as the Magician of Stones, Boucheron is decorating every creation in the collection with diamonds; these are all carefully selected and inset using prong settings in order to sublimate the pistils. Having become eternal, these Pensées, which means “thoughts” in French, bear a powerful and romantic message: ‘ I am thiniking about you’. They will make an unforgettable gift for your wife, daughter or granddaughter. Timeless and sophisticated, these flowers of character celebrate their fragility.
AIGLE DE JODPUR
The Joy ring is an ode to simplicity, and to the stones for which the Maison Boucheron has become known throughout its history. The Joy ring takes the form of a stunning 21 carat sapphire cabochon adorning a ring which is only there to support it in its beauty, acting simply as a platform for the stone to dazzle and delight in its brilliance.
TRÉSOR DE PERSE
The Trésor de Perse suite is a feat of Haute Joaillerie. Two strings of diamonds run through rock crystal like glimmering halos, meeting in the centre with two perfectly paired cabochon sapphires. The diamonds are laced through the crystal cones, appearing like a set of mirrors against the sapphires, the multitude of reflections resulting in a true celebration of these exceptional stones and their infinite depth.
This spellbinding necklace is beautifully paired with the Trésor de Perse ring, set with a magnificent and historic cabochon sapphire, which once belonged to the Iranian Imperial family.
These Indian Palace rings were inspired by the water features and colored pools found in the grounds of the ancient Palaces. With eight distinct stones ranging from opal, amethyst, tanzanite and chalcedony to tourmaline, the colours shimmer and reflect like the surface of the water, depending on the light.

HÔTEL DE LA LUMIÈRE
Created in honor of the 120th anniversary of 26 Place Vendôme, the High Jewelry collection Hôtel de la Lumière is inspired by Boucheron’s archives, reinterpreting them in a contemporary fashion to sublimate their radiance, along the lines of L’Artisan du Rêve.
Soleil Radiant, Paon de Lune, Cascade de Diamants, Perles d’Eclat, Halo Delilah, Goutte de Lumière, Every name in the collection evokes the art of Light according to Boucheron and pays homage to all those who have contributed to the reputation of 26 Place Vendôme. In addition to the artisans and head jewelers who are known as the “Hands of Light” a legendary figures have left their mark on Boucheron’s mythical address. Each creation in the Hôtel de la Lumière collection recounts the story of some of the memorable moments of 26 place Vendôme and its historical figures, which include Louis XIV, Françoise Sagan, César Ritz, Gabrielle Boucheron, the Countess of Castiglione, Ernest Hemingway, Jean Cocteau, Francine Weisweiller and La Belle Otéro. Thus, through eight sets of jewelry, Boucheron tells eight chapters of its history and uncovers its multi-faceted art of Light.
Mehndi Brooch, eternal ephemera
Create an ethereal brooch was the challenge that the Maison set itself. The studio had the idea of starting with a curved, soft and graphic motif called “Paisley” designed in 1878 by Frédéric Boucheron for the Maharaja of Kapurthala.
This shape, rather like a teardrop, is reminiscent of the ephemeral henna patterns of Rajput women. To embody permanent tattooing, the workshop naturally turned to the hardest gem, the diamond. So the Mehndi brooch is made up entirely of diamonds of every cut. Thus calibrated pears and round cuts form the heart of these drops that seem to be applied directly to the skin.
Conceived in the purest tradition of jewellery, the openwork motifs have been worked to obtain embroidery of the finest diamonds. Light as lace, the brooch can be converted into a necklace, in the Boucheron tradition of multi-wear jewellery.
GARDEN & COSMOS
Plume de Paon, a paradox of lightness
As the national bird of India, the peacock has always been an inspiration to Boucheron, with its feathers being interpreted numerous times throughout the Maison’s creations. This motif has even led to Fréderic Boucheron’s iconic innovation: the question mark necklace. Indeed, while playing with a feather, Frederic Boucheron and its workshop director imagined the first question mark necklace without a clasp. A new collection, a new challenge: made with marble and diamonds, some of the heaviest and hardest materials, Plume de Paon still manages to be remarkably light. The audacity lays in the paradox between the material and its volumes. The marble, cut in delicate pieces, perfectly sits on the women’s neck it adorns, in order to create light volumes and contemporary motifs.
Nagaur, a talisman necklace
With the Nagaur necklace the design studio celebrates the magnificent splendour of the state regalia worn by the Great Moghuls. These impressive pieces, originally intended for men, embellished their ceremonial dress and testified to their great deeds.
The Maison focuses on returning to the form and materials traditionally used: gold, diamonds and pearls. It adds its own touch of modernity with rock crystal, which represents the contours of the citadel of Ahhichatragarh.
In order not to lose any tradition, the Maison has taken the number 7, a sacred number for Indians, to offer a seven strand necklace, with seven rows of Japanese pearls, traditionally strung on silk thread. Small diamond-set cylinders like rays of light are added to this while a diamond-studded roundel unites the central piece with its central motif. The whole piece is arranged around a pool in a 2 carat diamond cushion, a princely miracle in the middle of the desert.
Also in Boucheron’s tradition, Nagaur can be worn in 3 different ways: with or without the tassel and central motif. Over and above the technical prowess, the romanticism of the piece lies in its rock crystal heart filled with sand from the Thar Desert, as if fixed for ever in the hollow of this precious talisman.
Jodhpur Reversible Necklace
Jodphur, a sublime reversible necklace of unrivalled daring
This piece blends strength and delicacy: the rigour of perfect symmetry and the excellence of a craftsman’s expertise sit alongside the delicacy of a diamond twisted wire as a very lightweight fastener for this piece. The exceptional nature of this two sided creation is also due to a material used in High Jewellery for the very first time: Makrana marble, the most precious and sought after in the world, the same marble used to construct the Taj Mahal.
The central motif made of marble is carved into the shape of a kite and at its centre sits a 6.01 carat diamond casting a sparkling light over the marble.
On the back is a series of shimmering sapphires and diamonds, a reminder of the Cubist glowing radiance of Jodhpur’s small blue and white houses.
