Guerlain vintage costume jewelry
According to belief, perfumes are invisible jewelry, and both are known to mankind from the very beginning of civilization. But when these two beautiful worlds meet, real masterpieces are born. Many jewelry brands have created perfumery, as have many fashion houses producing perfumery created jewelry. Traditionally, perfume ads are accompanied by jewelry, making these advertisements bright and memorable.
In fact, the first “jewelry” perfumes appeared in the middle of the last century thanks to such brand as Chanel. Also, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels (1978), Boucheron (1988), Chopard, Bulgari (1990s), and many others. The French company Guerlain was no exception. One of the world’s oldest perfume houses, founded in 1828 by Pierre François Pascal Guerlain, the company began creating costume jewelry in the 1980s. Exquisite bottles with divine aromas and their jewelry prototype made it possible not only to smell, but also to touch branded works. Vintage bottles, for example, with the honeycomb or gold hive and bees – the emblems of the Guerlain house, attracted buyers. Those who could not afford to buy expensive perfumes bought a brooch or pendant in the form of these perfumes.
Sometimes, when buying expensive perfumery, customers were offered branded jewelry as a gift – necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. Made from alloy jewelry, sterling silver, 14-24 carat gold plating, Swarovski crystals and rhinestones, the designs of these pieces often included the brand’s initials. Every piece is Guerlain-branded, Made in Paris. Noteworthy, many well-known jewelry designers worked for Guerlain, and Arthus Bertrand was one of them.
