Mauboussin, one of the great Jewellery houses of Paris, has its origins in the House Noury, founded in 1827. In 1877, Georges Mauboussin (1862-1940) became an apprentice in the jewellery company of his uncle, Jean-Baptiste Noury, becoming in 1883 the creative director and, in 1903, its sole owner. In 1922, the House changes its name.
Mauboussin is famous for its Art Deco and Retro jewels, which were worn by stars such as Marlene Dietrich and Paulette Godard. This House, in the heart of Place Vendôme, has been creating unique pieces of jewellery, dedicated to women of good taste.
Nowadays, the vast majority of this pieces are conceived, cut and elaborated in France, in order to offer women the very best of a great and long artistic and jewellery tradition.
The creation of a jewel is an adventure that starts with emotion, in the dreams and imagination of its designers.
