Jewel of the day: Boucher

Boucher was really my first designer costume jewellery love. I first saw the ruby flower in Vivienne Becker’s fantastic book Fabulous Fakes and vowed to stop collecting once I had found it. Well, that didn’t happen… And the retro styled bow is one of the pieces that I doubt I will ever part with. One of the things I like best about Boucher is that because of his early career in fine jewellery, his costume pieces are generally well designed and crafted and have a very real look to them.

  1. I found intotemptation.wordpress.com very informative. The article is professionally written and I feel like the author knows the subject very well. intotemptation.wordpress.com keep it that way.

  2. Hi there!

    Wow, that retro bow in the second picture really is gorgeous, such a timeless piece. I love the fact that it has a sort of Art Deco/Art Nouveau feel 🙂

    1. Thanks – it’s definitely one of my favourite pieces and you can really see Boucher’s fine jewellery training showing!
