Description:

Frédéric Boucheron opened his first Paris boutique in 1858. Once the Palais Garnier (opera house) opened, he decided to move his boutique to be closer to high society in 1892. Frédéric was the first jeweler to move to Place Vendôme, where The House of Boucheron remains today. He chose 26 Place Vendôme because it had the sunniest corner on the square. He believed that the diamonds in the windows would sparkle all the more brilliantly. This small square remains one of the most expensive shopping areas in Paris.

Many of his clients were not women of society, but femmes fatales of the demi-monde. His skill with precious stones and his absolute discretion made him a favorite of both courtesans and princes. He kept detailed records of stones that were brought in as stock, along with records of what special clients brought in for him use for a new creation.

Many of his clients were not women of society, but femmes fatales of the demi-monde. His skill with precious stones and his absolute discretion made him a favorite of both courtesans and princes. He kept detailed records of stones that were brought in as stock, along with records of what special clients brought in for him use for a new creation.

The demands of these wealthy individuals led to the sensational orders that elevated Boucheron to the highest level of creativity.

La Femme Fatale is inspired by the diverse clientele and the creative style of Boucheron. A faceted bullet-shaped CZ is layered like a beautiful cake using netting and a netting variation. Flanking the central component are two trillion CZs, simply bezeled. All of the components nestle inside two fire polish filled ropes, ending in a simple bar clasp. Elegant, extravagant, and beautiful.  
Size: 1 ¼ inches wide by desired length
