Cover Claire Choisne talks more about Boucheron's new high jewellery collection, Contemplation

The creative director of Boucheron takes us through the brand’s new high jewellery collection, Contemplation

What did you want to achieve with Contemplation?

I wanted to suspend time. I wanted to capture and transform the beauty of simple moments, such as the passing of a cloud or the feel of a feather, into pieces of jewellery that will last forever.

What’s your favourite piece?

There’s more than just one. The Goutte de Ciel, the Nuage en Apesanteur and the Fenêtre sur Ciel necklaces really give life to the dream of wearing a piece of sky. These three pieces put technical innovation at the service of poetry.

What kind of woman wears Contemplation?

Our pieces are made for a woman who enjoys freedom and independence. She knows what she wants and what suits her personality and taste. She doesn’t wear jewellery to define herself. She wears it as a creative way to express herself.

Who would you love to see wearing Contemplation?

It wouldn’t be a queen or a princess; it would be my daughter.
