Among the 67 pieces in the collection contemplation, the most intimate and personal ever created by Claire Choisne, Creative Director of Boucheron, stands out a exceptional masterpiece necklace: Goutte de Ciel. “With this piece, I wanted to capture the elusive and give the opportunity to wear a piece of heaven around my neck“.
The research to make this piece of High Jewelery was important and complex: the goal was to recreate the cerulean tones of the sky and that almost impalpable sense of lightness and evanescence. “It was so long that I wanted to capture the ephemeral, recreate the poetry of the present moments, the purity of the sky, the play of light. The art of jewelery consists in stopping time, in making eternal what is by its nature transient “.
After two years, the choice was to employ a particular airgel used by NASA to collect stardust, 99.8% composed of air and silica. This material was encapsulated in a rock crystal shell garnished with diamonds, dangling from a rock crystal and diamond choker. Respecting the tradition of versatility of the Maison Boucheron, this extraordinary talisman is also available as a long necklace with silk cord.
The heart of the collection “Contemplate” space and time, the sky. The rest of the pieces decline their gaze towards Truth with just as much beauty (video).
