It's the forbidden things that hold the most temptation, and riding this air of mystery and allure is Boucheron's Serpent Bohème which has been captivating women the world over for almost five decades. A tale of attraction that's been given a reinvention, the classic fine jewellery collection with its iconic teardrop-fashioned snakehead framed by a beaded border now comes in a vast selection of transparent precious coloured stones.

Counted among its brilliant iterations are amethyst, citrine, onyx, lapis lazuli and white mother-of-pearl delicately perched upon yellow, white and rose gold settings — pieces that convey a free-spirited sensuality, inciting one to play around with mixing and matching the collection according to their fancy. Accompanied by the maison's trademark twisted chain, the Serpent Bohème motif wears as stunning cocktail rings and statement long necklaces — among many other glittering pieces — pulling together a look that's pure contemporary elegance, layered with a touch of delicacy. And once again, the serpent's spell is irresistible.
