Boghossian (Instagram), so often the epitome of artistry and elegance, has just introduced a series of new pieces in its renowned Inlay Collection. These creations reflect the quintessential fusion of Eastern inspiration and innovative craftsmanship that is synonymous with the Maison. Boghossian takes us on a journey where enigmatic opaque hardstones delicately conceal dazzling, faceted coloured gemstones at their heart.
The Inlay ‘Reveal’ novelties include a captivating array of pendants and earrings crafted in Morganite and Pink Opal, as well as Blue Topaz and Turquoise. Each piece pays homage to cultural heritage while underscoring Boghossian’s unwavering dedication to rekindling the ancient art of inlay.
Centuries ago, skilled craftspeople along the Silk Road perfected this technique. In Ancient Egypt and India, they inlaid marble alongside vibrant hardstones and mother-of-pearl, creating shimmering art and architecture. This artistry extended to the majestic inlaid depictions of India’s colourful blooms found throughout the Taj Mahal.
Boghossian’s Inlay collection draws inspiration from these stylized floral motifs, breathing contemporary life into this time-honoured skill. Meticulously cut pear-shaped and oval-shaped gemstones beautifully represent the petals and leaves reminiscent of Mughal art.
Every piece within this collection is the result of painstaking craftsmanship. Gemstones are intricately carved by skilled lapidarists to fit together seamlessly. Minimal use of metal ensures an abundance of light floods through each stone, accentuating their breath-taking brilliance. The collection features simple silhouettes, allowing colour and craftsmanship to take centre stage. The Inlay collection serves as a brilliant testament to Boghossian’s remarkable ability to transform ancient inspirations into sophisticated modern-day treasures.
