The name Lalique has long been associated with the wonder of transparency and jewellery brilliance. Since Rene Lalique first began specialising in the artistry of glass making, he began implementing many of his inspirations into his designs – namely aspects of nature taken from his surrounding environment. Many of his heirs shared the same creative flair, and after the death of his father, Rene began refining his skills and techniques in jewellery making. As an independent designer for some of the great jewellery Houses such as Jacta, Cartier and Boucheron, Rene returned home to France after two years studying away in England, to take over the workshops of jeweller Jules Destape on Place Gaillon in Paris. Some of his first designs using glass were created around 1890 when Lalique had reached his early twenties. Gold, opals, diamonds, pearls and amethysts were also used to embellish his jewellery.
Now Lalique resonates with many jewellery lovers around the world. Cherished for its versatile beauty and its simplicity, these creations combine a modern, clean and youthful look whilst having been manufactured from some of the company’s most time-honoured, traditional jewellery-making techniques.

The Lalique Cactus jewellery line resembles the profile and the beauty of the cactus and often features a crafted piece of clear crystal embellished with striking black lacquered detailing. For something a little more bold and eye-catching, the Lalique Charmante range of jewellery pieces embody a black lacquer and deep, mesmerising blue crystal design, enriched by a polished sterling silver setting. Infused by nature, these unique designs are instantly recognisable as a creation belonging to the Cactus collection, and are perfect for combining simple white gold or silver jewellery during the day.
Lalique bangles, Lalique necklaces and Lalique brooches are often combined with other materials like black cord or black/grey stingray leather. These innovations are perfect for the younger generation of Lalique lovers and can be worn with urban, chic weekend wear, such as a stylish jeans and jacket combination. The Lalique Hirondelles Stingray and Swallow Crystal Cuff Bangle is a mesmerizing accessory which features two swallows at the centre of the design, carved from clear crystal. Swallows are a symbol of good luck but also go hand-in-hand with the elegance and the femininity of Lalique designs. The addition of the stingray leather is an extra special touch that will be welcomed by those who like to attract attention for their unique taste in fine jewellery.
