D'Orlan Jewellery Ltd. was founded in Toronto, Canada by Maurice Bradden in 1957. Bradden previously trained under the French jeweller, Marcel Boucher who established the Marcel Boucher & Cie Company, in New York City in 1937.

The brutalist era defined by big looks, somewhat of those from the classic Hollywood glam era, yet redefined by the used of a more "natural approach" to setting using flowed gold and nugget-esque looks from artists like Arthur King.

Brutalism is an architectural style characterized by a deliberate plainness, crudity, and transparency that can often be interpreted as austere and menacing. It emerged in the mid-20th century and gained popularity in the late 1950s and 1960s.
