LA MAISON

THE EXTRAORDINARY
BLOSSOMS

True connoisseurs are driven by their quest for the extraordinary.
In search of excellence, they find their dream in the slightest nuance of a piece, which to others may be unrecognisable. This quest is based on passion.

A passion for beauty. A passion for creative expression, through craftsmanship, and through the understanding of skill and devotion at the highest levels of artistry. Harnessing passion and knowledge, Boehmer et Bassenge creates masterpieces for those who truly understand their value and how to appreciate them.

 

AN ILLUSTRIOUS PAST

Taking inspiration
from history

Long ago, during the reign of Louis XV, two Parisian jewellers, Charles Boehmer and Paul Bassenge, created a spectacular diamond necklace that made history. On the orders of the King, they sought and achieved perfection.

Today, in homage to these fellow artisans and inspired by their uncompromising craftsmanship, a new boutique Maison de Haute Joaillerie bears their illustrious name. Calling on decades of experience and years of planning, the partners in this present-day atelier are achieving the same impeccable standards.

 

Flawless diamonds

A quest
for perfection

The diamonds incorporated into the jewels of Boehmer et Bassenge are not in the world’s top 1% – they are in the world’s top 1,000,000th of 1%. The most beautiful anomaly of nature, they are a gift that is rarely given. These large diamonds of D colour, Flawless purity and perfect symmetry are most often consigned to museums.

Working only with such diamonds, Boehmer et Bassenge matches this top tier with the same quality in workmanship. Together, a legacy begins that will be treasured for centuries to come.

 

Creating a masterpiece

Enhancing the marvels
of nature

Having access to the most sought-after diamonds in the world is a rare feat. An anomaly of nature, it is a Master Cutter’s skill which brings forth their brilliance, creating a synthesis between nature and precision. We work only with pieces which are timeless, yet which require an extraordinary amount of time to perfect.

Boehmer et Bassenge specialises in iconic diamonds which are beyond comparison. Representing the pinnacle of Haute Joaillerie, the atelier creates one-of-a-kind masterpieces for the most extraordinary, most beloved women.

 

Design & crafstmanship

The timeless world
of haute joaillerie

Haute Joaillerie has its provenance in Paris. Boehmer et Bassenge employs only the traditional techniques, passion and flair synonymous with French jewellery.

Sketches, inspiration, collaboration and then design… drawing on centuries of culture and tradition dating back to the age of Versailles. Gouache drawings are created by our jewellery designers and each and every detail is meticulously noted and followed.

The artist and atelier collaborate closely to create a handcrafted diamond jewellery piece that will create both excitement and refinement… and history.

 

Iconic creations

‘to surpass all others
in quality and grandeur’

In 1772, the command from King Louis XV to Boehmer et Bassenge was clear: ‘Surpass all others’. This principle still holds true today, as each piece is destined to earn a place in the history of diamonds. There has never been such an iconic item and there may only ever be one opportunity to acquire it.

Throughout the world, just one privileged woman will have the honour of wearing this treasure, as an object so rare and precious is destined to have just one rightful owner. It is an exceptional piece created with care and dedication to adorn an exceptional woman.

A dream for many, a reality for one.
