Lalique pays tribute to its founder with the opening of a Lalique fine jewellery shop in Paris

Lalique prepares to open its first boutique dedicated entirely to fine jewellery in Paris' iconic Rue de la Paix.

In tribute to Rene Lalique's contribution to the avant-garde movements, Lalique's first boutique exclusively for jewellery is every bit as Art Noveau as it is luxurious.

Lalique is returning to its roots with the opening of its first boutique dedicated to fine jewellery in central Paris.

The new shop will be in Rue de la Paix, only a stone's throw from the House's original shop in Place Vendôme, where its founder Rene Lalique exhibited his jewellery collections between 1905 and 1935.

Scheduled to open in June, the 80 m²boutique will be spread across two floors. The ground floor will house more than 200 pieces from Lalique's fine jewellery and High Jewellery collections, including a selection of iconic jewels such as the Gourmande ring and the Mascottes cufflinks. There will also be a bespoke service for engagement rings and wedding jewellery.

The lower ground floor will encompass a private salon, inspired by the 1900 World Fair which heralded Art Nouveau as a significant new style in architecture and design. Here, the House's crystal craftsmanship will be in the spotlight with collaborative designs and limited edition pieces such as the Lalique-Parmigiani Fleurier table clocks and crystal perfume bottles.

Rene Lalique left 24 Place Vendôme in 1935 when he decided to concentrate on glasswork, and moved his shop to 11 rue Royale, Paris 8th, which has become the symbolic address for Lalique's Art de Vivre.

Designed by the Pustetto Agency, the architecture of the new shop is inspired by both Art Noveau and Art Deco, in a tribute to the founder's contribution to the avant-garde movements. 

Bold colour and details, such as a genuine signature of the 'Sculptor of Light', come together in an interior which plays with contrasts: matt leather is juxtaposed with shiny lacquer, warm wood with cool marble and stark black and white with shimmering coppery gold.

Suspended from a magnificent chandelier are 2,500 Gourmande rings in a dazzling tribute to the iconic ring deigned by Rene Lalique in 1931.  The decadent interior will be the perfect backdrop to the launch of the new Lalique jewellery collection, Soleil de Gaia, during Haute Couture week in July. It also tells the world that, two years after its rebirth at the Hotel d'Evreux, the resurrection of Lalique's fine jewellery line is complete.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
