Treasures Of The Tsars: Boucheron's Hiver Impérial Collection

Watches & Jewellery

Be captivated by the provocative pieces Boucheron’s latest high jewellery collection

Inspired by Russia’s stunning snow-covered landscape, exotic architecture and stirring history, Boucheron has created a spectacular collection called the Hiver Impérial, which incorporates the most magnificent gemstones and lustrous pearls.

As the first French jeweller to open a shop in Moscow, in 1897, Boucheron has close ties to the landscape and heritage of imperial Russia. It’s with this familiarity and 160 years of experience in creating exquisite fine jewellery that the French maison creates the Hiver Impérial.

The collection has three themes: the brilliantly white, frosty Russian landscape (Lumière de Nuit), the fashions of Slavic empresses wrapped in pearls and pale furs (Femmes Boréales), and the unique skylines of Russia’s imperial cities (L’Anneau d’Or), an ode to rooftops, cupolas and onion domes.
