    For the past 100 years, with four generations of passion and expertise in gems and high-end jewellery, the Boghossian family have been creating unique jewellery pieces for a selective and demanding clientle. In 2008, Albert Boghossian, together with two nephews Roberto and Ralph, created BOGH-ART, an Haute Joaillerie line that combines precious stones with audacious and innovative designs. BOGH-ART is famed for its revival of the ancient art of "inlay", a decorative technique of setting a stone directly into another stone, to form patterns and pictures that are seamlessly set within the matrix. Each stone is delicately shaped, sculpted, and carved out to the most exacting standards and measurements, an expertise inspired by the finest watch making tradition. BOGH-ART exclusive jewels blend beautiful colours with extremely fine craftsmanship resulting in unique and exquisite sophistication.
    This highly delicate emerald and mother of pearl bracelet is reminiscent of the delicate Art of Marquetry, a craft highly appreciated and developed in the Middle East. This intricate expertise consists of covering a structure with pieces of veneer - generally woods, ivory, tortoiseshell, mother-of-pearl, or fine metals. Usually applied to furniture or decorative objects, Bogh-Art skillfully translated this technique to jewellery.
