Boucheron's Dolce Riviera jewels take us to an idyllic beach where opals shimmer as tempting as cool Mediterranean waters in the noon-day sun and candy-bright flowers bloom. Watch the video of the Paris launch. Boucheron tempt us to wear the new Dolce Riviera jewels with the lightness of a summer wrap or a flower pinned in the hair, taking us far away from the rigid formalities of traditional jewels. Each family of jewels represents on of the five the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean: Isola Bella, Capriccioli, Beau Rivage, Paraggi and Aiguebelle. The intensely coloured sapphires, rubellites, turquoise, tourmalines and rubies combined with thecool surfaces of pearls, coral and opals capture moment in seaside paradises, be it white-sand beaches shaded by lush forests are lapped by azure waters, the luminescent colours of summer flowers or crystalline pools shot through with beams of light. The necklaces hang low and loose with swags of rock crystal beads in the case of the Aiguebelle collection or strands rubellite, tourmalines, yellow sapphires, emeralds and spessartite garnets for the Isola Bella. Some necklaces have detachable parts that can be worn as brooches or bracelets while watches are concealed behind clusters of gems. The rich colours, free-flowing designs and soft cabochon shapes of the stones capture the spirit of a carefree summer so succesfully that I can almost smell the Piz Buin and feel the sand in my toes. I think I feel a cool glass of white wine coming on.
