French jeweler Marcel Boucher (1898–1965) was one of the most talented designers and manufacturers of the American jewelry of the last century.
Born in Paris, Marcel Boucher 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 distinguishes his jewelry pieces from all the other decorations. Prized by collectors and fans of vintage accessories, most jewelry labeled with the name of Boucher, and serial number. However, earlier works were labeled Marboux or MB.
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.
