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.
Recognised as one of the world's greatest glass makers and jewellery designers of the art Nouveau and art Deco periods, René Jules Lalique was an imaginative and creative artist in all his work. Lalique's early life was spent in many different types of artistic businesses, acting as apprentice and assistant. This heavily influenced the designs he used in his later life, including his emphasis on glass.

  2. 2. René Lalique (1860-1945) 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.   He 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. Many of Lalique's jewels were unique masterpieces, some almost too eccentric to be worn. They were made for a select clientele of collectors and ladies of fashion. When these marvels were revealed to a wider public at the Exposition Universelle of 1900 in Paris, they brought Lalique fame throughout Europe and America.
