Thank you!
The amazing creations by René Lalique (1860-1945), the exquisite designer of jewelry and precious glassware, mainly depict natural elements, animals and female nudes, in the typical Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. Often referred to as the "Sculptor of Light", Lalique worked for Cartier, designed jewels for Sarah Bernhardt and established a manufactory which is still flourishing today. You can discover his beautiful works…..
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.

  • 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.
  • Devenu bijoutier attitré de Sarah Bernhardt, René Lalique l’est aussi du collectionneur portugais Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian qui lui achète quelques cent cinquante bijoux et objets d’art. Industriel avisé autant qu’artiste talentueux, lassé d’être copié, Lalique délaisse les bijoux et s’oriente dans une production exclusivement verrière en créant vases, statuettes, flacons de parfum, services de verres, bouchons de radiateur, luminaires, éléments architecturaux aux lignes de plus en plus épurées, qu’il fait réaliser en série dans ses ateliers de Combs-la-Ville, près de Paris, mais surtout dans ceux de Wingen-sur-Moder en Alsace, ouverts en 1922. C’est dans cette région de grande tradition du verre, que la maison Lalique va prospérer et conforter sa réputation internationale avec des réalisations prestigieuses, telles que la fontaine Les Sources de la France à l’exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs de Paris en 1925, la décoration de wagons pour la Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-lits ou de la salle à manger de première classe du paquebot Normandie.

  • Of all the animals reproduced in the work of Lalique, the peacock is perhaps regarded as the most emblematic of the spirit of Art Nouveau, and it is a recurring theme in the artist’s work, whether isolated as here or in pairs in other jewels. The theme is again very representative of Symbolist painting, as a symbol par excellence of natural beauty in all its splendour. This pectoral is made up of an enormous, articulated peacock in enamelled gold in tones of blue and green simulating the feathers of the bird which have small cabochon-oval opals set here and there. Sinuous movement of the feathers in the tail, turned to the left, is enriched by a balanced composition of diamonds, of various sizes, that finish off the piece on both sides.

    2. 2. René Lalique, an exceptional jeweler and a great master of French glass, was one of the most famous designers of Art Nouveau  and Art Deco period. For the last 90 years Lalique creations have been manufactured at Wingen-sur-Moder in Alsace, France, (where Lalique Museum was opened  on the 1st. July, 2011). When Lalique was 16 years old, he became apprenticed to the jeweler Louis Aucoc. While working for Aucoc, Lalique also studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris which established him as a jeweler designer for great establishments such as Cartier, Hamelin and Boucheron. Towards the end of 1880, he started his own business and manufactured under his own name. He worked with gold and gems as well as unconventional materials such as enamel, horn and glass. He created brooches in the form of thistles, currants, poppies, scarabs, bugs and butterflies. He often mixed flora and fauna and created women's figurative bodies in the shapes of Water Nymphs or Winged Figures, like the pendant 'Femme Libelulle - Dragon Fly Woman, one of the masterpieces in his collection.
