Following the death of his father, René Lalique became an apprentice to craftsman and jeweler Louis Aucoc. It was during this time that he learned jewelry-making techniques while attending classes at the École des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. He then left for England where he continued his studies for two more years.
The name Lalique evokes the brilliance of jewelry, the wonder of transparency, and the brilliance of crystal. Before it became a brand name, it was the name of a man, an artist of genius, René-Jules Lalique, and of his heirs who shared his creative flame.
In 1977 Marc’s daughter Marie-Claude Lalique became CEO of the company. She renewed the tradition of jewelry design and developed the fragrance business.
Lalique is the intense desire to go after wonder in transparency and color.
