Boucheron’s menagerie keeps growing. Favorite creations Nuri, the cockatoo and Hirunda, the swallows now perch atop pendant earrings. Both new avian accessories feature a tear drop frame that extends from a single diamond stone set below a chic, circular base — but while Nuri displays a colorful playfulness, Hirunda exudes icy elegance. Each piece of the former set finds two birds nuzzling on a pink gold swing, their plumage sparkling with orange, pink, and yellow round sapphires, as well as pavé tsavorites. The Hirunda pair, however, stands out for its absence of hues, complementing a white gold skeleton with diamonds and striking black lacquer. The jewels join a collection of necklaces, pendants, watches, and rings that also bear the swallow and cockatoo motifs.
