Maison Gripoix glass jewellery
Founded in 1869, Gripoix jewellery house is one of the oldest, if not the oldest manufacturers of costume jewelry in the world.
Parisian glass worker Augustine Gripoix was the first who began to master the sophisticated technique of creating jewellery of glass, metal and artificial pearls. She revived pâte de verre – the art of melting glass.
Meanwhile, Gripoix jewellery house created extraordinary pieces for princesses and aristocrats requesting replicas of their precious jewels. Also, fashion designers’ – Charles Worth, Paul Poiret, Jeanne Lanvin, Givenchy, Yves Saint-Laurent, Chanel and many others. Made in gold or brass, polished to a golden shine jewellery enjoyed great success in the times of the Belle Epoque. Noteworthy, Sarah Bernhardt herself wore Gripoix costume jewellery on stage. The company also created beautiful necklaces, crowns, brooches specially for the film “La belle et la bête” (‘Beauty and the Beast’) in 1946.
