Marcel Boucher Jewelry

This nice collection of Marcel Boucher jewelry includes brooches, earrings, pendants, and sets from the 1940s-1950s. Known for high-quality materials, expert craftsmanship, and unique designs, his pieces typically feature intricate metalwork, rhinestones that resemble real gemstones, top quality faux pearls, and colorful enamel work. A former fine jewelry maker with Cartier, Boucher was forced to move to the costume jewelry industry during the Great Depression. He worked for Mazer Brothers before starting his own business in New York City in 1937. In addition to his jewelry designs, Boucher patented six mechanisms for mounting dress or fur clips – what we call double-clip brooches. Read more about Marcel Boucher.

    Pearl, Diamanté & Gold Flower 1950s Brooch/Pendant & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , ,
    The brooch in this 1950s set by Marcel Boucher features a trio of heart-shaped blossoms. Their gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. The ear clips are single hearts. The brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, can be worn as a pendant by inserting the pin stem through the loops attached to the snake chain. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture, as the loops are attached to the chain. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8") was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender.

    , ,
    This vintage gold flower brooch from the late-1940s is one of several versions Marcel Boucher created with petals that open and close. This design is often referred to as Day to Night.

    Ruby, Diamanté & Gold Circle 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , ,
    Marcel Boucher designed a number of circle pins and earrings in the 1950s, and this set is a lovely example of this work. The gold-plated open-circle brooch is embellished with an arrow of pavé topped with ruby glass baguettes. The closed-circle earrings are embellished with the same stones in a leaf-like setting. Perhaps these pieces were not originally a set. (The brooch is unmarked; the earrings have no inventory number.) Even so, they look great together!
