IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR WITH DAUGHTER EMMA ON BOARD AND NOW TWO GENERATIONS OF BOULLES AT WORK, KAREN BOULLE WANTED TO CREATE JEWELRY DESIGNS THAT APPEAL TO A YOUNGER CLIENTELE
ow a new Boulle in the business is influencing even more than jewelry
de Boulle has been in business for more than 35 years — and today prides itself on separating itself from the competition with its own branded line of jewelry, the de Boulle Collection. The collection is designed and curated by Karen Boulle, whose work on the Collection has created ripples in the design world for the choice of unusual gemstones. Much of Karen’s inspiration springs from her childhood, liv- ing in the farthest corners of the world with her well-traveled parents. “I’ve always been attracted to color,” she says, “and I think that’s from the markets I saw, growing up. The Ghurka women had these amazing colored bangles. And when my fa- ther would go to Kathmandu, he would bring back beautiful little boxes with turquoise and coral.”
On Karen: Emma Linear Earrings $5,400. Posh Stackable Bracelets from $7,600 each. Posh Stackable Rings from $2,800 each. On Emma: Emma Stud Earrings $2,500. Emma Three Stone Necklace $1,600. Emma Cuffs from $3,000 each.
