Selection Stones and Pearls

B A S E L W O R L D S E L E C T I O N / 1 6 9 3.0/A17 M A N U E L B O U V I E R Manuel Bouvier launched his company in Geneva in 1992, offering exceptional stones and personal creations. Encouraged by the tales of Joseph Kessel, he decided to set about sourcing stones from some of the most remote locations on the planet. As a graduate of the GIA, he quickly began to specialise in rare and original precious stones, ancestral diamonds from India, rubies from the legendary Mogok mines, jades and opals. In the past, Manuel Bouvier has collaborated with some of the big jewellery brands such as Cartier and Marina B and in doing so, developed a taste for exceptional creations and unique pieces. “Drawing on the skills of qualified artisans in Europe and ancient techniques used in India, I create jewellery which features some rare gemstones and almost forgotten materials.” These include magnificent emeralds from Colombia on diamond- studded rings and two lavish triangular diamonds on chandelier earrings. Manuel Bouvier also sells and purchases old objects (jewellery, curiosities, collection pieces) and as a member of the Swiss Association of Gemstone Dealers (ASNP) and Deputy President of the I.K. Fabergé Foundation, he undertakes valuations and advises collectors. Through the foundation, Manuel Bouvier seeks to highlight and preserve the heritage of one of the most important jewellery makers of the last century. By collecting together archive documents which were dispersed following the 1917 revolution, as well as letters from the tsars, original photographs and previously unpublished Bolshevik inventories, Manuel Bouvier and the foundation published a reference work about Fabergé in 2012. They spent 10 years compiling the 624 page encyclopaedia of the Russian company.
