A striking collection of high jewelry art has just been shown by Boucheron in Paris. Jewels, united under the name of Hiver Impérial, the creative director of the brand Claire Shuang devoted to the magical Russian winter. Is it theatrical? Perhaps. Luxuriously? Certainly. Handsomely? Highly! There are golden domes in diamond pava, and ice with snow in the performance of mother-of-pearl, chalcedony and rock crystal, and even a tree – patinated aspen, for example. The star of the collection is a pearl collar dedicated to Baikal and as if descended from the postcards of the last royal costume balls. The rest of the things are inspired by Claire’s journey through the Golden Ring.
You look at these jewels and realize how strong the source of inspiration can be Russian winter. Strong frosts, drifts, frost on the trees and, conversely, blackening branches during the thaw in the snow-covered forest, polar owls, Arctic Foxes and Laika (the same Boucheron, as here without bestiary?) – all this is understandable and nice to the Russian people. Especially in a precious incarnation. Separate praise deserves a really deep work Boucheron with the original: decorations Nuit Etoilée – an obvious curtsey towards the traditional pearl jewelry of the Russian North.
Of course, there were snowflakes. Here, for example, a necklace-transformer with rock crystal and diamonds – the words of his beauty can not be described. Urgent turn on the “Three” Sviridov for the atmosphere and see the rest of the decorations!
