Today we discover Merveilles, a new stone-setting technique developed by Boghossian and it is so sophisticated, that it makes diamonds appear to float in thin air.
Based in Geneva, Boghossian has six generations of experience and this shows in the development of ground-breaking techniques that create new illusions with the most precious of stones.

Following on from the Art of Inlay and Kissing Diamonds, the Mervielles technique that took four years to develop frees diamonds from their settings to allow the purest reflection of light.

“It’s actually not the gold that holds the diamonds together but it is actually the diamonds that are holding them together and the reflections in every single angle is stunning because with this minimal gold you are managing to get the light from every perspective.”

Diamonds sit as light as dew drops on these Creole hoop and even though they have 196 diamonds they are super light. 

Can you see how the Merveilles technique is used here to suspend yellow pear-shape diamonds?

Thanks to the Merveilles technique, all four sides of these mounts are set with diamonds enhancing the brilliance of the central stones.

Boghossian adds another twist to this innovative ruby and diamond necklace.

"Clients love to play with their jewellery and like to have different ways of wearing them. We came up with this idea with the Merveilles setting where basically you see almost no gold, but we have decided to set one side with diamonds rubies and one side with diamonds. When you wear the necklace you just have to twist the inside frame with diamonds and then you can wear it in a different way."

Merveilles adds a new facet to Boghossian unique way with gems and it also pushes the boundaries of what we expect in the world of high jewellery.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
