Essay

The Reflet was introduced by Boucheron in 1947 and took three years to develop and combined the technical prowess and aesthetic requirements unique to Boucheron.

The gadroons which adorn the case have been used by Boucheron since the nineteenth century for their bright and vibrant qualities. By capturing and refracting the light, they reveal the beauty of the piece. The sculpture of the gold reaches a level of precision and finesse which only the Maison’s “Hands of Light” can achieve.
