BOUCHERON LIERRE DE LUMIÈRE TIMEPIECE (High Jewelry Wrist Bracelet with Secret Watch)

A watch is hidden beneath Lierre de Lumière’s sculpted gold foliage, decorated with an openwork design and set diamonds. The leaves delicately intertwine around the wrist to form a bracelet with a secret opening.

More than just a timepiece, this stunning creation is an invitation to dream, where the craftsmanship takes a back seat to give way to imagination. Inspired by the City of Lights, this most Parisian of jewelers is celebrating its roots – its foundation at the Palais-royal and its fascination with nature in the city. At a time when others only had eyes for the perfection of French formal gardens, Frédéric Boucheron was captivated by the wild ivy that grew beneath the arcades of the Palais-royal. With this bracelet, Maison Boucheron is paying tribute to nature that preserves its place in the city.
