Recounting Boucheron's historic order

As it launches its new High Jewelry Histoire de Style, New Maharajahs collection in January 2022, Boucheron is releasing a new podcast episode on True Stories channel about the historic commission given by the Maharajah of Patiala in 1928.

Historian Vincent Meylan recounts the most fabulous order ever recorded in Place Vendôme in the podcast from Boucheron.

Created in 2020, the True Stories podcast channel is an invitation to delve into the most iconic stories of the Maison Boucheron since its inception 164 years ago, with the first five-episode series For Better and For Worse being dedicated to the most incredible weddings the Maison has witnessed.

The many designs of the Maharajah of Patiala commission have inspired Creative Director Claire Choisne to offer a reinterpretation of it. Symbols of power at the time, these unique creations allow men and women to express their style and uniqueness, says Maison Boucheron.

Recognized as the most important in the history of Place Vendôme, this special order is recounted with passion by Meylan: "On that August morning in 1928, the Maharajah was surrounded by warriors just as imposing as himself, carrying iron chests. Louis Boucheron, who received them in the boutique at 26 Place Vendôme, found that these chests contained an extraordinary treasure: 7,500 diamonds, more than 1,500 enormous emeralds, rubies, pearls, etc. At the Maharajah's request, Maison Boucheron was to create a fabulous set of 149 designs."

These designs were subsequently carefully archived and preserved in the Maison's library.

This new episode of Boucheron True Stories will be available in French and English from January 24, 2022 on Apple Podcasts, SoundCloud and Spotify.
