Fusing heritage and holograms to create jewellery that not only captures light but refracts and suspends it, the new Carte Blanche Holographique high jewellery collection from Boucheron, designed by Claire Choisne, is a dazzling tour de force.
True to the spirit of Frédéric Boucheron, the collection consists of nine jewellery sets and 25 pieces in total, and represents the freedom to create above all else. And what Choisne set out to create—with breathtaking success—was to delve deeper into the theme of light and its power to express the beauty of the ephemeral, transcribing its fleeting emotion without words, inspired as she was by the interplay of light and colour in the works of artist Olafur Elisasson and architect Luis Barragán.
Choisne has incorporated elements not often seen in high jewellery. The pièce de resistance, the Holographique necklace—which resembles shards of glass gleaming with opalescence—is the result of contrasting rows of fine diamonds set against holographic rock crystal, embellished with yellow sapphires.
