Reading time 2 minutes

LOVE IT! Baïkal is an imperial bodice front adorned with more than 2000 Akoya pearls. To ensure the maximum comfort of a jeweler’s touch, the multiple strands are strung on silk thread and connected with aquamarines, moonstones and diamond slivers that tie together the set’s elegance and style. Boucheron studio created a ribbon of aquamarines beads corseted on the back of the necklace so that it can be adjusted as needed and lays perfectly on the neck. A huge 78.33 carat oval Santa Maria aquamarine island echoes the crystal clear blue waters of the Baïkal lake. As an ode to imperial jewels and dress, it is decorated with pearls and pear shape diamonds set on moonstones. The juxtaposition of pillowy white pearls and wintery icy blues gives the necklace an ultra-feminine blend of contrast and harmony with strings of diamond-set lace to accent the choker. Baïkal necklace is truly a masterpiece of this collection.
