he first jeweler on Place Vendôme, the Maison opened its
doors in Paris under the arches of the Palais Royal in 1858.
From the very beginning, Frédéric Boucheron set the tone:
this international adventurer travelled to mines all over the world in
order to acquire the very _ nest stones. He was a forerunner in terms
of style and technique,and his inventions soon won prizes at the
World’s Fairs; he was a man on a continual quest for excellence. For
him,every jewel was a work of art and every watch should be a jewel.
True to this spirit of distinction, guided by the search for elegance and
modernity, Boucheron has established a reputation for more than 150
years as the jeweler of light in the “City of Light”.
Today, it is the only jewelry Maison whose workshops still overlook
the famous Place. None other has succeeded in winning the favour
of both royalty and that of clients with more audacious and carefree
tastes.
Boucheron is known and renowned for the quality of its stones and
the painstaking care and attention it lavishes on highlighting them,
for passing on its savoir-faire from generation to generation, for its
on going quest for innovation with the best craftsmen of its age, and
for the technical prowess of its jewels and timepieces.
A PERFECT ASSEMBLY
CRAZY JUNGLE HATHI harmoniously blends a natural stone
mosaic with the diamond or multi-colored gem stone setting.
Like a starry night against a sky, CRAZY JUNGLE HATHI Purple
in white gold presents a plethora of diamonds, amethysts and pink
sapphires that flow over the case, itself highlighted by a violet karung
strap. The fabric against which the “Crazy Second” disk stands out is
incredibly beautiful, with its sculpted pink rosette with violet and light
pink drops. You would think you were in Jaipur, Rajasthan’s Pink
City.
Like the pigments in a painting, each stone has its role. In the pink
and violet ombré paved setting, white diamonds concentrate the light.
Against a white mother-of-pearl sky set with diamonds, CRAZY
JUNGLE HATHI Diamonds is more reminiscent of the
extraordinary clarity of the imperial city of Udaipur, christened “The
White City”.
Here, all is light: the white gold case, diamond paved setting, mother-
of-pearl dial and matte white alligator strap. When the elephant is
adorned in its majestic set of diamonds, the painting resembles a
breath taking view over Udaipur or a snowy landscape
