I love the organic shapes of Mazer and BOUCHER jewelry style and some of Gustave Sherman's better pieces

And anything basically anything with rose cut diamonds and raised designs..

BOUCHER 1937-1971

Marcel Boucher was one of costume jewelry's most respected designers. He began by designing fine jewelry in New York City for Cartier, moved into creating his own line in about 1937. Making jewelry with the marks "MB", "Boucher" and "Marboux", his designs were fluid and detailed and his enamels have a colorful soft iridescent quality that make them a particular favorite.

Costume Jewelry" on page 196. ViewView #M21885

Mazer - Also see Jomaz . Mazer Brothers was founded by Joseph Mazer and his brother Louis about 1927 in New York. One of the Mazer Bros. best known designers was the talented Marcel Boucher who left to open his own company in the mid 1930s. In 1946 Joseph Mazer left Mazer Bros. to form Joseph J. Mazer and Co. (better known as JOMAZ), while Louis Mazer stayed with Mazer Bros. until 1951, the year of his last jewelry collection.
Mazer Bros. was known for its innovative stance, exploring new design and production methods and continually experimenting with different techniques for creating metal alloys or for use in the refinishing processes. The stones used in their jewelry were frequently made to order by Swarovski in Austria. ( 7 ) p. 216.
The company went out of business in the late 1970s. Mazer manufactured high quality jewelry which sold at middle price range and is avidly sought in the collectible market today.
The early 1950s jewelry was designed by Andre Fleuridas, and Adolfo designed some of the 1970s pieces for the company. The earlier jewelry is marked Mazer Bros., while the later pieces are marked Mazer or Jomaz
