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. 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. In 1885, after gaining recognition as an independent designer for some of the great jewellery Houses such as Jacta, Cartier and Boucheron, René Lalique took over the workshop of jeweller Jules Destape on Place Gaillon in Paris. The traditions of Rene Rene Lalique were carried on by his son, Marc Lalique and his Grand daughter, Marie-Claude Lalique who designed these collector plates.
