This sapphire and diamond bracelet, made by Boucheron in around 1910, is an engineering marvel. It is so delicately constructed that it presents as a kind of jeweled lace. Constructed entirely in platinum, it has retained its light, fabric-like quality while surviving in tact for over a century. Each sapphire has been expertly calibrated by hand to fit its exceedingly detailed and refined setting. One can only imagine the original jeweler painstakingly constructing this bracelet over many months.
Research performed by the Boucheron archives reveal that the bracelet is an adaptation of a choker which would have originally been composed of two identical pieces.
Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from Boucheron dated April 25, 2022 and an original copy of the Art et Décoration journal from September 1912, depicting an all-diamond version of the choker.
