Marcel Boucher, possibly the greatest designer and producer of costume jewellery in America, was born in France and trained as an apprentice to Cartier.
He emigrated to America in the 1920’s and established his company there in 1937. Boucher produced the most exquisite jewellery, unsurpassed by any other, utilising wonderful rhinestones resembling gemstones. In fact his costume jewellery can easily be mistaken for the real thing!
All his jewellery is highly collectible.
