Description

Boasting over 150 years of creativity and gemological expertise, the Boghossian story begins in 1868 on the Silk Route, a crossroads where merchants and artisans converged. Over the generations, the Boghossian family traveled from East to West, handing down an innate eye for exceptional gemstones and a flair for craftsmanship along with a wealth of artistic and cultural inspirations. Now based in Geneva and helmed by the fifth and sixth generations, Boghossian has evolved into one of the world’s master jewelers, whose one-of-a-kind pieces regularly achieve world-record sales at auction.

Drawing on its heritage of gem knowledge and savoir faire, the Boghossian family has reimagined ancient techniques and developed new ones, such as Inlay, Kissing, Merveilles and Diaphane. Today, creative director Edmond Chin, a visionary artist known for his avant-garde creations, works alongside the Boghossian family to push the artistic and technical boundaries of high jewelry design. Together, they mine the maison’s rich history to create one-of-a-kind pieces that spotlight the singular beauty of nature’s rarest gemstones.

Featuring eloquent text by respected jewelry historian Vivienne Becker, this richly illustrated volume expresses the Boghossian family’s legacy of adventure and expertise, of cross-cultural influences and innovations, unfolding like a silk thread connecting East and West.

Our jewelry speaks the language of East and West. The East brought femininity, opulence and intricacy, and the West brought modernity, technology and innovation.
