About Boivin

The House of Boivin was founded in 1890 in Paris by René Boivin whose marriage to Jeanne Poiret, sister of the famous couturier Paul Poiret, quickly turned it into one of the fashion’s elite brands. When René died young in 1917, his wife Jeanne took over the design direction of the firm. She famously hired only female designers, including her daughter Germaine Boivin, Juliette Moutard and Suzanne Belperron, who conceived many of the firm’s most iconic designs. Unstable economics in the period of the ‘30s and ‘40s encouraged creativity and innovation in the use of new materials like ebony and sandalwood in addition to yellow gold and semi-precious stones like citrines, topaz, and rock crystal. Today, jewels by Boivin remain as fashionable as they were at the moment of their creation and are considered highly collectible, fetching high prices at auction.
