Lot Essay

The Maison Boucheron has revisited its enchanted bestiary to celebrate its enduring charm. What better emblem than the chameleon to represent this eternal renewal? Inspired by nature’s wonders, Boucheron’s jewelers excel in the delicate sculpture which brings these animals to life.

Ajourée Masy le Caméléon is a jewelry watch paved with round diamonds, multicoloured sapphires, tsavorites and ruby along the chameleon's body, made of polished white gold. This creation is incredibly complex, due to the chameleon's particular curved form.

Hedgehog, parrot, cat, chickadee or swallow... The extraordinary story of the Boucheron bestiary begins in its workshops in 1866. The place where nature is an inspiration. It is here that the collection of pieces between High Jewelry and works of art was created. A procession of fabulous animals that has come to life in the hands of the jewelers over time. These expert craftsmen chisel, polish and pave with such precision that each carved animal appears truer than nature! Each person can adopt the animal friend, which will become their exclusive, protective totem, their own lucky charm and mascot.
