Wavy tendrils set with light smoked topaz and jonquil rhinestones sit against a shiny gold-plated metal backdrop, and flow out from the central high domed topaz cabochon. Simply fabulous! Marked ©BOUCHER and 7854P.

A true costume jewelry master, Marcel Boucher originally worked in fine jewelry, working for Cartier for a time. After exploring fine jewelry and fashion accessory design, Boucher started his own costume jewelry line in 1937 and might be best known for his "exotic birds" pieces for major Fifth Avenue department stores. Later joined by by Sandra Semensohn who eventually also became his wife, the Boucher firm continued to produce high-fashion jewelry until it was sold to Davorn Industries in 1970.
