Animals symbolize virtues, character traits, or values. They become totems when mounted on a ring, a necklace, a brooch or earrings. Set with emeralds or sapphires by Boucheron’s gifted artisans, animals become precious and exclusive companions. Hummingbird or wolf, polar bear or white swan: over 20 different species fill the bestiary of the Collection of Animals.
Softly rounded under its delicate spikes, Hans, the hedgehog pendant is easily tamed. The Pointe de diamant motif, an emblem of the Maison Boucheron, gives light to the jewel by creating multiple reflections. The work on the gold gives the animal life-like reality.
Hans, the Hedgehog sits tenderly on the neckline and becomes a precious protector.
