Gustave Baugrand, born in 1826, learned the fundamentals of the jewellery trade from his father, Victor, a noted Parisian stone setter and jeweller. In 1852, he began an association with Paul Marret who, six years previously, had taken over his uncle's business, located at 19 rue de la Paix. With Marret's unexpected death the following year, Baugrand took over the atelier, working in conjunction with his partner's widow until her remarriage, at which time he became the sole proprietor. Baugrand elevated his maison to rival the other French jewellers, receiving commissions from members of the court, including Napoleon III. His critically acclaimed exhibit at the Paris Exposition in 1867 earned him the Legion of Honor. Baugrand died in 1870. The same year, the jeweller, Ernest Vever, moved his well-established house from Metz to Paris and acquired Baugrand's business enabling him to become an important jeweller of the Art Nouveau movement.
