René Boivin Jewelry

Françoise Cailles

Quartet Books, 1994

René Boivin comes from a family of clothiers. He apprenticed with one of his brothers who became a goldsmith at the end of the 1880s. In 1893, Boivin left his studio in rue Saint Anastase to settle in rue de Turbigo. In the same year, he married Jeanne Poiret, sister of the couturier Paul Poiret, with whom he worked hand in hand until his death. By resuming her name and the reins of the house, she will become the first woman jewelry designer to be recognized in the 20th century. clip-boivin-or-perlesbis René Boivin, gold and pearl mask clip René Boivin s daring and originality very quickly set him apart from the jewelers of the time. He prefers clean shapes and raw materials to the overloaded and shiny trend of the moment. He mainly creates to order using the old jewelry of his clients. His creative power lies in his passion for the arts and it is as a collector that he created his jewelry like works. The most striking example remains this unique piece produced between 1910 and 1915 with the chiseled technique, a clip in the shape of a grimacing mask inspired by Chinese theater whose hair is made up of a cascade of pearls.
