Martell Cordon Bleu Centenary Ultimate Jewel Edition

June 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

To celebrate Martell Cordon Bleu’s one hundredth anniversary, the House of Martell turned to the House of Boucheron, one of the greatest and oldest of Parisian jewellery houses, to make a one-off piece of the iconic cognac bottle.

The Ultimate Jewel captures both houses’ passion for transforming the finest and rarest of raw materials into either exquisite blends or timeless jewellery.

The original piece will be auctioned in China at the end of the year to mark the culmination of Martell Cordon Bleu’s centenary celebration.

Made of fine crystal, the bottle artfully combines Martell’s house motifs in a poetic way, with the use of outstanding materials.

The Martell swallow is represented in gold with a diamond eye and is complemented by the centenary’s visual code: the infinity sign which also represents the figure 100.

The bottle’s neck highlights the gold sculpture work through the godron, one of Boucheron’s key codes.

Adding the final touch is a white gold seal and a white gold lid which is crowned with a lapis-lazuli stone, inspired by the cabochon, another distinctive code of Boucheron.

The Ultimate Jewel is presented in a specially designed box, using Martell’s distinctive colour blue and with a gorgeous ivory veal skin leather interior.

Making this a true collector’s item, a centenary metal plate marking the occasion is concealed in a drawer at the base of the box.
