About 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 clips – what we call double clip brooches.

    Black enamel & diamante rose brooch
    USD$375.00

    Black Enamel & Diamanté ‘Rose of Seville’ Brooch & Earrings

    , , ,
    In this vintage rose brooch, Boucher crafted a lovely three-dimensional flower in black-enameled lattice trimmed with round diamanté. The stem of the rose is adorned with baguettes. The rhodium-plated setting closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The matching ear clips, which are just as well-designed, are a bonus. This incredibly-detailed 1950s set deserves its elegant name: Rose of Seville. Wear the brooch with real or faux diamond stud earrings. Or, if you like the style of the decade, wear the pieces together. Either approach will make your outfit memorable. Dazzling jewels for those who like to wear cool colors.

  • Vintage gold flower necklace/brooch & earrings
    Floral brooch worn as pendant
    USD$295.00

    Pearl, Diamanté & Gold Flower Necklace/Brooch & Earrings Set

    , , , , ,
    This vintage gold flower necklace and earrings set from 1950 is a '3-for-1' jewel! It has a trio of heart-shaped blossoms that form the centerpiece, which can be detached and worn as a brooch. The ear clips are single blossoms. The gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. Attach the brooch to the snake chain by inserting the pin stem through the necklace loops. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8″) was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender. Wear the pieces together or separately with complimentary contemporary jewels.

    Ruby, Diamanté & Gold Circle Pin & Earrings Set

    , , ,

Perhaps these pieces were not originally a set. (The brooch is unmarked; the earrings have no inventory number.) Even so, they look great together!
