With the next instalment of the Biennale des Antiquaires less than four months away, we are already beginning to contemplate the wonders that will be on display in Paris. But while we will have to wait until September to see the jewels in person, this week Boucheron has whetted our appetite for what's to come by unveiling a sketch of one of the high jewellery pieces it will be presenting at the Grand Palais this autumn.
The Tresor de Perse necklace forms part of Boucheron's Reves d'Ailleurs high jewellery collection, inspired by an ephemeral dreamland and created at its Place Vendôme workshop.
The jeweller's stand at the 27th edition of the Biennales also promises to be a showstopper, with plans to transform it into a Gardens of Versailles with a not-to-be-missed botanical installation.
Boucheron returned to the Biennale de Paris with great fanfare in 2012. Enjoy some highlights from the last Biennale alongside a one-of-a-kind Cristal de Lune watch - on show for the first time at Baselworld earlier this year - that will form part of Boucheron's showcase at the 2014 Biennale des Antiquiares.
