Catalogue Note

The Parisian Firm of Maison Marret Baugrand was established in 1852 by Gustave Baugrand and Paul Marret.  Paul Marret died the next year and Baugrand continued in partnership with Marret’s wife for a decade.  They were known for their designs and production of high quality. They became the official “Joaillier de l’Empereur” Eugénie  in 1855. 

The firm was also known for their exquisite designs incorporating pearls and diamonds. They eventually established themselves amongst the most famous jewelers in Second Empire France.  The firm was purchased by Ernest Vever in 1870 following the death of Baugrand.
