Maison Boucheron, a subsidiary of the Kering group, has absorbed a Haute Joaillerie workshop located near Place Vendôme. The arrival of 60 craftsmen strengthens the team at its own historic workshop, just a stone’s throw away.

 

Boucheron is beefing up its Haute Joaillerie production by acquiring a “workshop renowned for the excellence of its traditional skills, located just a stone’s throw from Place Vendôme”. And therefore in the immediate vicinity of its own historic workshop, itself located since 1896 at number 26 of this emblematic square. Boucheron was acquired by Kering in 1999.

The Boucheron acquisition actually encompasses four companies, Blondeau, Belter, Chanson and FG développement, which had been grouped together at the same address since 2017 by Cédric Gangemi, a “young French entrepreneur, trained as a jeweler”. He had worked at Chanson and Blondeau before taking them over and developing them within the group he founded.

 

Some sixty craftsmen

 

With this new entity, Boucheron can rely on the contribution of some sixty craftsmen (designers, jewelers, lapidaries, setters and polishers). Involved at every stage in the manufacture of a Haute Joaillerie piece, they joined Boucheron on October 31. They join the skills of employees already working for Boucheron’s historic workshop.
