Mauboussin was a French jewellery store began in the 1800s. The business grew over the next century and by the 1930s it had branches across Europe and America, with clients such as Marlene Dietrich, Paulette Godard and even Audrey Hepburn.
During the 40s, women’s clothing became more masculine with structured shoulders and nipped waists, so their jewellery became more feminine. Large brooches set with colourful jewels made their way into the spotlight and larger, more layered necklaces adorned the necks of most women who frequented lavish soirees. Larger rings with more angular cut stones were also popular and often incorporated the stepped shoulder design used during the Art Deco period that preceded it.
