Note: Founded in Paris in the 1870s, Maison Gripoix began to create costume jewelry at the turn of the century by making copies of Sarah Bernhardt's fine Art Nouveau pieces. The house soon began to create looks for numerous couturiers, from Chanel and Worth in the 1920s, to Christian Dior in the 1940s, and Yves St. Laurent in the 1980s. In the 1990s, the house began to produce its distinct Histoire de Verre line, which incorporates foliate motifs and faux pearls.
