With a signature blend of Eastern inspiration and innovative craftsmanship, Boghossian revives the ancient Art of Inlay for new generations to admire. Centuries ago, craftspeople along the Silk Road perfected the technique of inlay. In Ancient Egypt and India alike, marble was inlaid alongside vibrant hardstones and mother-of-pearl to create art and architecture of shimmering splendour.
Throughout the Taj Mahal, majestic inlaid artwork depicts the colourful blooms of India. Boghossian’s Inlay collection pays homage to these stylised floral motifs, breathing contemporary new life into the traditional skill. Masterfully cut pear-shaped gemstones represent the petals and leaves of Mughal art. In the Shine series, light dazzles across two inlaid faceted gemstones, their colours chosen to enhance each other’s beauty. Each piece is the result of meticulous craftsmanship; gemstones are painstakingly carved by skilled lapidarists to fit together seamlessly. Minimal metal allows an abundance of light into each stone, emphasising their breathtaking brilliance.
Simple silhouettes allow colour and craftsmanship to take centre stage. The Inlay collection is a dazzling example of Boghossian’s ability to translate ancient inspirations into sophisticated contemporary treasure.
