About Antique René Boivin Jewellery
The engraver and designer, Rene Boivin (1864-1917), founded the firm bearing his name in Paris during the 1890s. This period was hugely important for jewellery design, and the Boivin name quickly gained a reputation for high quality, unconventional pieces that showcased sculptural naturalism. Following his death in 1917, the talented designer Suzanne Belperron began her jewellery career in 1919, working with the widow of Rene Boivin. Spearheading the unconventional, naturalistic approach favoured by Boivin, Belperron pieces are renowned for their curvaceous, naturalistic forms. Continuing after his death in 1917, the firm continued to create desirable pieces, which are collected and worn today.
