NEW MAHARAJAHS – High Jewellery by Boucheron
In 1928, escorted by no fewer than 40 servants, the Maharajah of Patiala pushed open the doors to Boucheron in Place Vendôme and commissioned the largest ever special order in the history of the square. Now, in 2022, Creative Director Claire Choisne pays homage to these treasures with the “New Maharajahs” High Jewellery collection, writing a new page in Boucheron’s History of Style.
As with each History of Style collection launched by Boucheron in January, Choisne transposed designs from the Maison’s archives into the 21st century, inspired this time by the 149 designs crafted for the Mahajara. The creative studio has highlighted design elements that symbolize ancestral India, incorporated traditional techniques, while colours have faded into a monochrome metamorphosis; all for women and men keen to express their personality and their own style through striking Boucheron creations.
