French jeweler Marcel Boucher
Born in Paris, Marcel Boucher (1898–1965) was one of the most talented designers and manufacturers of the jewelry of the last century. He produced unique, the highest quality of workmanship jewelry, superior to all known brands.
Traditionally, Boucher jewellery reflects the classical and new creative trends. Made until 1971, all the jewelry was top-class performance, and it has become the hallmark of Boucher. Talent of Boucher, prized by collectors and fans of vintage accessories, distinguishes his jewelry pieces from others.
The marking included a patent number, MB (1937 – 1949), or Marboux (1938-1960s), “Boucher” (1950-1955), and Boucher © (after 1955).
Noteworthy, Marcel Boucher was one of the first to apply the so-called three-dimensional design of jewelry. In addition, he actively used the colorful enamel products.

Boucher emigrated to the United States in 1920 and began making jewelry designs for Mazer Brothers. In 1922, he began the career of the great jeweler in the New York office of Cartier. However, the crisis of the Great Depression in 1929 did not pass him, and Boucher had to change jobs.
Only in 1937, Boucher was able to organize his own company under the name Marcel Boucher and Cie in New York.

Marcel Boucher died in 1965, and his wife, who was also a designer, continued the family business. In 1979, a Canadian company D’Orlan Industries of Toronto bought the Boucher company. Since then, the company marked decorations with d’Orlan.
