Literature: For examples of Boucheron Paris jewels in an “all-white palette”, characterized by strong patterned design created by a variety of fancy-cut diamonds including trapezoids, squares, baguettes and trillion cuts, see Boucheron: Le Joailles du Temps, by Gilles Néret, Lausanne: Edita, S.A., 1992, p. 86, fig . 172

In the late 1920s, Art Deco jewelry designers returned to an all-white palette. Jewels became more voluminous, referencing the vocabulary of the dynamic new architecture of the period with its wealth of stylized geometric motifs drawn from historic sources, including chevrons, zigzags, and pyramids. Among the great French jewelry houses, Boucheron was one the most creative and successful proponents of this major international style.
