CAFE' SOCIETY: Parisian jeweler Boucheron is exhibiting its High Jewelry line to the general public for the first time at a temporary café set up in Tokyo's Roppongi Hills shopping complex. The exhibition officially opened on Saturday and will run through May 26.

 

On display are some of the brand's iconic nature-inspired pieces, including the Bouquet d'Ailes necklace, which incorporates peacock feather and butterfly and dragonfly wing motifs. Each item or series is artfully placed in a glass case surrounded by real greenery. Inside the cases, the jewelry is complemented by fresh floral arrangements by Japanese flower artist Makoto Azuma, who returns to the cafe space each morning to replace the flowers, ensuring that the displays are always fresh.

 

The café has a special menu inspired by the jewelry on display. Items include a salad modeled after a necklace of flowers and foliage, and a dessert shaped like a pearl.
