Animals symbolize virtues, character traits, or values. They become totems when mounted on a ring, a necklace, a brooch or earrings. Set with emeralds or sapphires by Boucheron’s gifted artisans, animals become precious and exclusive companions. Hummingbird or wolf, polar bear or white swan: over 20 different species fill the bestiary of the Collection of Animals.
Each woman can adopt the animal friend that will liberate her temperament and affirm her style.
A procession of fabulous animals that has come to life in the hands of the jewelers over time. These expert craftsmen chisel, polish and pave with such precision that each carved animal appears truer than nature! From the elephant to the hummingbird. From the sturdy to the impossibly light. Whether clinging to the ear, coiled around the wrist or neck, or perched on a finger, each creature seems captured in motion, in the beating of a wing or a heart.
They seem to be captured in the material itself. Intense gazes of sapphire, emerald or ruby, coats sculpted in gold or studded with diamonds, insanely valuable plumage … each piece tells its story, real or imagined, to those who want to hear. Because when you choose an animal you become attached to it. It becomes much more than a piece of jewelry.
Boucheron bestiary started in its workshops in 1866. The place where nature is an inspiration. It is here that the collection of pieces between High Jewelry and works of art was created.
