Boucheron Quatre: the icon

Back in July 2012, I discovered
Boucheron’s amazing High Jewelry work for the first time. I have since been a
regular at the brand’s presentations, and the first jeweler on Place Vendôme did
not fail to impress me once more this January, at the Paris Jewelry Week. Not
introducing a high jewelry collection this time – maybe later in the
year ? 😉 Boucheron chose to focus on one of its major successes in
the past decades : the Quatre line.

ring in 2004, Quatre is now iconic to Boucheron, and to celebrities such as
Beyoncé and Salma Hayek. Each Quatre ring harmoniously assembles four
different bands, displaying signature Boucheron motifs: double gadroon (one of
the oldest Boucheron designs), line of diamonds (a trap of light with mirror
effects), Clou de Paris (reminding the cobblestones of the City of Lights), and
Grosgrain (a very graphic design).
new creations: a White Edition in 2011, a Black Edition in 2012, and more recently a Quatre Radiant Edition.
