          Hubert de Givenchy was one of the most important fashion designers of the 20th Century. He founded his fashion house in 1952 and dressed some of the most important women of the day.  Audrey Hepburn was his most famous muse.  He trained with the iconic designers  Jacques Fath, Pierre Balmain,  Christian Dior, and Elsa Schiaparelli. 

          The House of Givenchy was split in 1981, with the perfume line going to Veuve Clicquot, while the fashion branch was acquired by LVMH in 1989. LVMH eventually acquired the perfume business as well.  Givenchy retired in 1995 and passed in 2018 at age 91.  Subsequent designers for the house include John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Riccardo Tisci and the current head of design Claire Waight Keller.

            Marcel Boucher started his one costume jewelry company in 1937 after stints at Cartier and Mazer Brothers.  Born in Paris, he moved with Cartier to New York City.  Boucher was known for his bold designs of animals, plants and people as well as his enamel work.  He married late in life to his former assistant, Sandra, who ran the company after his death in 1964 through 1972.  Boucher used many different marks which can help date the pieces.   “MB Sterling” - 1942 and 1944. From 1944 and 1949 pieces may have a Phrygian cap above his initials. After 1944, pieces may have either of the following marks -  “Marcel Boucher” or “Boucher.” If the piece has the copyright symbol it is after 1955.  Serial number dating may be found here.
