This is for the purchase of a Signed Boucher Jewelry Set to include Choker Necklace, Bracelet and 2 clip earrings. The items in the photos are the actual items being purchased. Please message me if you have any specific questions. I am not a jeweler, but I spend significant time researching items online through Collection sites, eBay, Etsy, Pinterest and Jewelry Blogs. I do my best to represent the pieces based on my findings online and what I am actually seeing on the item. These particular pieces were part of my godmother's estate and everything she owned was high-end.
Some detail information about Marcel Boucher has been borrowed from Antiquing Online's Website ( http://www.antiquingonline.com/Designers/Boucher.htm )
> Marcel Boucher designed jewelry for Mazer Bros. in the early 1930s. He established his own company, Marcel Boucher and Cie Company, in 1937. The company became a subsidiary of Dovorn Industries, a watch manufacturer, in 1972. Marcel Boucher died in 1965. Sandra Boucher, his wife, ran the company until 1972. Boucher jewelry is usually signed and carries an inventory number. Early marks are "Marboux" or "MB" in a cartouche. Later marks are "Marcel Boucher" and "Boucher". Marcel Boucher jewelry is "high-end" and can be tough to tell from the "real thing". Numbers on Boucher pieces are inventory/style numbers. Though the numbers are a clue to age, the style may have been designed, numbered, and yet not actually produced until much later. Additionally, some styles had more than one production run. Overall construction should also be taken into account when dating pieces.
> Estimated age is 1955 - 1965
> Necklace and Bracelet both have a rope shape detail in gold tone metal. Each has been detailed with Aqua Glass Cabochon Stones.
> Necklace connector has Boucher marking with copyright along with a 101 marking. I could not find anything pertaining to the 101. As you can see from the above website, Inventory numbers listed are starting from 2300.
> Necklace- Choker that is lightly curved where it fits against the base of the throat.
Total length is 17" and weighs approximately 1.6 oz (45.36 grams)
> Bracelet- I looked extensively for a Boucher marking but could not find one. Each link has the iridescent aqua glass cabochon stone totaling 34.
Total length is 7" and weighs approximately 0.9 oz (25.51 grams)
> Earrings- Again, I looked extensively for a Boucher marking but could not find one. Earring are clips and are referred to as Button Earrings. Clips are very tight and work as expected.
Size- Diameter is 1" and Depth is 1/2" and both weigh in total approximately 0.9 oz (25.51 grams)
> set weight Total is 96.39 grams
> Jewelry has not been cleaned. I only took a soft cloth to wipe off any loose dust or dirt. I would prefer the new owner clean as they see fit.
> Very unique and RARE to find a set together like this and especially in such great shape. Unable to find this 3 piece set anywhere online!!!
