Ring set with round rubies and black diamond, in pink gold
Delicate and playful, Hans, the hedgehog represented by this ring is both rounded and spiky.
The precision of the pink gold crafting adds surprising reality to the animal. One of the Maison’s signature codes, the Pointe de diamant motif, gives the jewel a mirror aspect, full of light and sparkle.
A protective animal, Hans, the hedgehog sits tenderly on the finger thanks to this dazzling and precious ring.
Known as “the Divine One”, the Countess of Castiglione was reputed to be the most beautiful woman of the century. A mysterious beauty, she lived in the basement apartments of 26 Place Vendôme thus sharing the Hôtel de Nocé townhouse with Frédéric Boucheron: she particularly loved his creations and soon became one of the Maison’s most important ambassadors.
A collector of men’s hearts, namely Napoleon III’s, she was showered with jewelry by those who fell madly in love with her. So as to preserve her beauty from the harsh light of day, she only left her apartments in the evening, adorned in her jewels that sparkled brightly under the lights of the Place Vendôme. Legend has it that, when she returned home and was alone, she would spend hours contemplating them, fascinated by the magical dazzle of the splendid stones.
