Season after season, Claire Choisne, Director of Boucheron Creations, imposes her style. After capturing the moving beauty of the sky, she has chosen to dedicate this new chapter of Haute Joaillerie to light. More than ever, the time is ripe for daring and limitless creation. How could it be otherwise to capture these suspended moments, where beams of light create illusion? Shouldn’t we extract ourselves from reality to seek out the extraordinary?

Holography is an ode to light and all its chromatic nuances. Rather than choosing one, Claire Choisne has chosen to sublimate them all. The ones that exist in nature, and that we find in this bouquet of rings set with opals from Australia and Ethiopia, whose pearly, pinkish or blue-green nuances are reinforced by a trompe-l’oeil setting set with a gradation of multicolored stones. Others seem to come straight out of a dream world, where magic has taken over. This is the case of the white ceramic flowers on which a mixture of microparticles of precious metals has been projected at high temperature to give birth to “holographic coating, which offers a unique playground. With holography, Claire Choisne seems to deliver a manifesto of free creation, where each gesture must oscillate between rigor and letting go to arrive at this moment of magic, where the result is beyond expectations, and the beauty, even more striking.
