A Short History...

Known for his sophisticated and bold designs, Marcel Boucher is considered one of the most important costume jewellery creators of the twentieth century. Born in France, he moved to New York and became an apprentice designer for Cartier. But, as the Great Depression began, Boucher lost his job with Cartier and began work as a costume jeweller, transferring his skills from fine to imitation pieces. However, it is important to note that whilst the materials he worked with changed, the quality of his design and production remained the same. This brooch is a fabulous example of a Boucher piece that echos the style of high end fine jewels, but is constructed from imitation materials.  

Wear it With...

Pair this brooch with a crisp white t-shirt and navy blue blazer.

The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

- Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

- Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

- Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

- Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

- If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
