Extension of the domain of jewelry

Like fashion, jewelry has infiltrated art, cinema, literature, beauty and even hospitality. The latest domain conquered is animated film. Félicie, the main character of Ballerina (to be released on December 14th, 2016), wears a Boucheron diadem from 1904 conceptualized in 3D. The other characters are decked out in more contemporary pieces from the jeweler’s “Quatre” and “Serpent Bohème” collections.
