René Boivin was born February 1864 in Paris. An excellent designer and engraver, he began a career in the jewelry field at a young age. During the 1890s he purchased several workshops and established himself at rue St. Anastase. In 1893, he relocated to rue de Turbigo and married Jeanne Poiret, sister of the famous couturier and the first woman jeweler of the 20th century. They worked together to create some of the boldest and daring fashions of the early 1900s. After Boivin’s death in 1917, Jeanne decided to assume control of the firm and established herself in the avenue de l’Opera with Juliette Moutard and her daughter, Germaine Boivin. The three worked together for forty years, joined from 1921 – 1932 by Suzanne Belperron. They created such signature pieces as the Starfish (1936). Their jewels, inspired by animals and nature, became well known. Upon Jeanne Boivin’s death in 1959, the house was taken over by Louis Girard. In April 1991 the company became part of Asprey Group The main office and boutique are located on Avenue Montaigne.
