Maria Doulton: Walking round Geneva and London, you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to fabulous jewels, because all the big names in the game are here. But there is one that really stands out for me, and that's Boghossian. In 2008, when the family decided to establish the Boghossian brand, they decided to take design for fine jewellery into uncharted territory. They were able to do this because they have the confidence and the knowledge of fine stones inherited from generation to generation. 

Now, at the heart of the Boghossian look are two techniques they have very much made their own. The first is the Art of Inlay. This then evolved into a second technique, known as "Kissing Diamonds". 

CEO Albert Boghossian took us to the atelier where two of these techniques are carried out, and explained in more detail.

Albert Boghossian: We could use an emerald with a diamond, like you're going to see, but we blend them together in a very intricate way so that they look as one.

Maria Doulton: But Boghossian doesn't stand still, and the new collection is the fabulously opulent Ballet Oriental, which was designed by Creative Director Edmond Chin. 

Edmond Chin: The Boghossian family is a family from the Orient, and they have their own powerful aesthetic - I wanted to acknowledge that. I thought of dance, I really love dance; I think it's one of the most powerful sort of arts. We took aspects from ballet and from Oriental dance, and we fused it, and we made jewellery which was inspired by these ideas.

Maria Doulton: Only a family like the Boghossians, who have such experience with precious stones, can dare to be so bold, and look to the past and acknowledge the very best, and take it right into the future.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

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.

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