Acclaimed jewellers Bogh-Art have opened their first boutique in London, in a prime location on Bond Street, and the aim is to court the international clientele that make Bond Street such a highly desired destination.
The Boghossian family has been in the gemstone industry for four generations, creating exceptional pieces for other jewellers and well-known brands, but as their reputation grew, collectors would commission pieces directly – including royalty. As a result, Bogh-Art was born in 2007, and the launch reflected their desire to bring something new to the world of gems: innovative creations pushing the limits of jewellery design. Bogh-Art works only with fine and rare gems, and seeks to marry the old and the new by blending ancient techniques and charming old mine stones with the development of modern new materials.
The new Bond Street home of this Swiss house is in a brand new retail location, specifically created for the brand. The luxurious surroundings are dedicated to displaying the brand’s high jewellery, Art of Inlay and new material creations. Split over two levels, the serene, warm and inviting space evokes the interior of a jewellery box. Rich tones of beige, gold and bronze are punctuated with accents of amethyst, combined with sensitive architecture.
Inspired by the works of Gerhard Richter, the architects, StudioParisien, have designed an illusionistic space, calling upon the finest craftsmen in Paris for the textiles, lighting and furniture. Varying textures, refracting light a myriad ways, form differing perspectives and interest within this sensual box. The focal point of the design is a wall-mounted sculpture in bronze, an oversized broach inlaid with rock crystal, underlining the know-how of the brand.
Taking centre stage is Bogh-Art’s high jewellery collection – unique pieces and rare stones complimented by the Art of Inlay collection and the Kissing Diamond pieces. Bogh-Art’s innovative Titanium Fibre and Carbon Fibre collections can be found in the large display cabinets in the retail space on the ground floor, whilst clients with commissioning pieces will be invited to the brand’s private room downstairs, where they will be afforded seclusion and undivided attention from the Bogh-Art jewellery experts.
The exceptional stones and master craftsmanship married with audacious design makes Bogh-Art a worthy entrant to this historic jewellery enclave.
