The firm of Boucheron, founded in France during the mid 19th Century by Frederic Boucheron, is known as one of the classic French jewelry houses. Boucheron jewelry was so admired from the Victorian Period through the Art Deco Period, that it was displayed at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, the Expositions Universelles in Paris in 1900 and the Exposition des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1925. From its founding until now, jewelry from Boucheron has been valued for its beautiful, sensual designs, with pieces featuring lovely organic motifs such as flowers and animals. Boucheron recently celebrated its 150th anniversary and is currently sold worldwide in places such as Paris, Cannes, Monaco, London and Dubai. Boucheron’s clientele has included royalty and legends as Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth and Marlene Dietrich, and continues to be worn by fashionable stars such as Nicole Kidman and Rachel Weisz.
