7 peacock feathers

The peacock … The Mellerio brooch is one of the first jewelry pieces to feature the peacock feather. Over time, it has become a classic theme of Boucheron jewelry and one of its motifs of recognition. The exercise is particularly difficult because it’s necessary to recreate the beauty of the feathers’ multicolored changing iridescence and the delicateness of its barbs.

  • Mellerio, 1867 - Empress Eugenie's brooch made of diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires - The "eye" can be removed and turned into a pendant

  • Paul Iribe by Robert Linzeler, 1910 - Brooch made of diamonds and sapphires with an engraved emerald in the middle
