“Light has always intrigued me. We live alongside it, in it, without knowing exactly what it is. Does it move? Is it white? Is it multi-colored? With this Holographic collection, I wanted to bring a new meaning to light. One defined by Boucheron. To capture its very essence, which is color. Every piece is like a prism, catching the complexity of light by representing every single color that is held within it. Every piece reveals the colors of the world on a different day.”
- Claire Choisne
From the Greek “holos” and “graphein”. Holographic together therefore means “to represent everything”.
Celebrating the magic of color, these pieces crafted of fines strips of crystal took their cues from light itself: at the heart of the inspiration for this collection, but most of all, essential for its creation. In perpetual motion, ever evolving in each environment in which it sits, this avant-garde set is truly the shining star of the Holographic collection.

Diffracts and breaks light, revealing true, clear colors.
Multiple rows of holographic crystal and diamonds reflect playfully to and fro in a game of light and color on this cuff. The earrings and the ring are a stretched pear cut. The cleverly concealed light notches in the rock crystal multiply their radiance.
A system which amplifies light to create a glowing beam.
While it is normal in High Jewelry for a piece to be created around a selected stone, this process is inverted for this Laser set. What sort of stone would have tones to best match the holographic effect applied on the ceramic? The answer was found in a batch of pear-cut aquamarines in clear lagoon hues.

Looking at this entirely transparent Halo necklace, we see holographic nuances seemingly sliding across the rock crystal as the wearer moves rhythmically. The ring and the bracelet have also been subtly covered with a holographic coating in order to achieve the soft, comforting vibrations of a weightless soap bubble.
An ensemble of luminous rays shining from the same source, but in different trajectories.
Here, Maison Boucheron’s signature material of rock crystal plays its part in this new holographic game. First, we needed to create a Jack diamond before covering it with a second motif, both transparent and colored.
From the Greek khroma: the natural color of things.
Following in the footsteps of Fleurs Eternelles, this chapter celebrates the nature we dream of. Every petal of the pansy and the peony was scanned so that each curve and shape could be recreated as faithfully as possible. Enveloped in their holographic coating, the petals are given a new life.
Interpretation of meaning which makes people see things differently than they really are.
While the central opals originating from Australia and Ethiopia are eye-catching due to their size, the holographic effect in the trio of rings is multiplied by a trompe-l’œil setting. A second skin studded with multi-colored stones reproducing the opal’s nuances.

Movement of light which radiates in undulating waves.
The fires inside the opal multiply in these waves of color and light. A necklace and a pair of earrings edged with a trail of diamonds; these diamonds capture the brilliance of the light and diffuse it, ricocheting across the iridescent reflections of the opal.

At the center of this aquatic set, a betta fish swims through an opal sea. Its fins are created using the plique-à-jour technique, allowing the light to shine through their transparency so they sparkle with holographic reflections.
