The Mauboussin brand is founded in 1827 by the French jeweler M. Rocher and his cousin Baptiste Noury. Together they established a retail store in Paris. Later they opened a new retail store under the name Mauboussin, the successor of Noury. In 1928 they established retail stores in New York, London and Buenos Aires. After the Great War there was a strong sense of equality. The brand flourished providing attention to women’s jewelry. During the 1920s Mauboussin won many famous prizes at exhibitions.
In 1930 they started with the line called ‘Reflections’. This line was based on contemporary designs. During the 1920s and 1930s they designed many jewelries with emerald, ruby and diamond themes. In the 1940s and 1950s they created many beautiful pieces in a completely new style. The 1950s were marked by the arrival of Naturalist themes and the sense of movement and dynamism. In the 1960s and 1970s they used very figurative designs with flowers and birds. Also, there were many intense colors used. During the 1980s Mauboussin focused on the contract between light and shadow. All the shapes that they created suggested sensations which appealed to their clientele. In the 1980s Mauboussin also started to design luxury watches and the iconic Nadia and Olympe rings.
