Who is Augustine?
In 1869, Augustine Gripoix, a Paris glass worker developed a sophisticated jewelry making technique, called “P?te de verre". Since then the term ‘costume jewelry’ appeared, and Augustine's shop was set up in Rue Tiquetonne, the jewelry district of the French capital.

By the 1920s, the design house, ran by Augustine’s daughter Suzanne Gripoix, had added Jeanne Lanvin, Jean Piguet and Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel to their client list. Chanel first approached Gripoix looking for reproductions of Byzantine jewelry: she remained a loyal customer for decades.
