Thank you!
René Lalique (1860-1945) raised jewelry to the level of a fine art, using his amazing technical virtuosity to realize a very personal imagery based equally in dream and nature. He has been called the greatest artist-jeweler since the Renaissance. In the 1890s, a time when most jewelers displayed diamonds and pearls in glittering profusion, Lalique began to create subtle, painterly effects by combining opals, baroque pearls, semi-precious colored stones, glass, and enamel.

    Merci Marcus. 'Avec la disgrâce de l'Art nouveau, et les sombres années 1930, les bijoux de Lalique tombent dans l'oubli. Sa cote a véritablement commencé à démarrer à partir de l'exposition de 1991 au musée des arts décoratifs de Paris'....Mais comment peut-on oublier une chose pareille ? Est-ce possible ?

  • René Jules Lalique (1860 – 1945) was a French glass designer known for his creations of perfume bottles, vases, jewellery, chandeliers, clocks and automobile hood ornaments. He started a glassware firm, named after himself, which still remains successful. He went on to be one of the most famous in his field, his name synonymous with creativity, beauty and quality. Lalique reinvented jewelry. A contemporary asked, "Prior to René Lalique, what was jewelry? The old jewel was based upon the idea of wealth; the new is built upon an artistic idea." Jewelry had relied on gems, particularly diamonds, and on precious metals. But between about 1892 and 1897 Lalique developed an approach that emphasized artistry over intrinsic value. He introduced horn and other new materials and made extensive use of glass, enamel, ivory, and semiprecious stones. Lalique especially loved the ever-changing iridescence of opals. It has been said that where the old jewelry sparkled, Lalique's glowed.
  • A contemporary of Lalique, Vever made this flower pin. It is made of Mississippi River Pearls and plique-a-jour leaves. Called a ‘bodice ornament’, it was shown at the 1900 Exposition Universelles in Paris. They truly loved items from nature in those days.
