The Bochic Woman is the embodiment of independent spirit, confidence, style, adventure, and a zest for life. Whether she lingers over espresso at a Paris café or fastens her safari hat for an excursion though Southern Africa, the Bochic Woman has impeccable taste and a passion for luxury. Miriam Salat and David Aaron Joseph hope to capture the essence of the Bochic Woman in their jewelry.
THE ORIENT COLLECTION
The Orient Collection was inspired by the ancient jewelry techniques and traditions from India, Turkey, and Morocco. The Bochic Orient collection brings to life the intricacy of the old patterns, interweaving of enamel work and precious gemstones, and the luxurious color combinations. These patterns and colors give the jewelry an exotic appeal, yet the design is modern and clean. The collection is all hand-crafted using the finest gemstones and rose-cut diamonds.
MEET THE DESIGNERS
Miriam Salat began her career designing airports and highways as a New York City civil engineer. Tired of straight lines and right angles, she turned her attention to jewelry. Three months after designing her first collection, Miriam sold her line of hand-crafted fashion jewelry to Barneys. Soon after she added Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales to a long list of boutiques that carried her line. Whether she sources materials in India or South America or in her own backyard, New York City, Miriam always strives to bring her unique look and flattering styles to her customers.
David Aaron Joseph:
For David Joseph, Bochic is a natural extension of his creativity. With a strong background in music and film, David also has an enviable level of experience in the jewelry industry. At a young age, David was introduced to the business through his family, who ran a successful jewelry manufacturing company in London. After graduating from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), he embarked upon a career as a diamond trader and jewelry designer, culminating in the founding of Bochic.
