  • Ren Lalique is without a doubt, the most important jeweler of the Art Nouveau period. His work was innovative for its time in many ways. The influence of nature on his work, his use of unconventional materials and techniques, and his unique themes were all imperative to his eventual success. As a leader of the Art Nouveau movement, Laliques work is ground-breaking and extremely unique.French poet Gustave Kahn, in answering the question, Prior to Ren Lalique, what was jewelry? gives a perfect answer: [Jewelry was] obviously ornament, but also a crude kind of luxury. Themasterpieces of his predecessors, all founded on the brilliance of diamonds, seemed like portable cathedrals of lightThe old jewel was based upon the idea of wealth; the new is built upon an artistic idea.

    In the 1920s he also became famous for his work in the Art Deco style. Among other things he was responsible for the walls of lighted glass and the elegant glass columns which filled the dining room and grand salon of the SS Normandie.

    Recognised as one of the world's greatest glass makers and jewellery designers of the art Nouveau and art Deco periods, Ren 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.He used the most modern and innovative manufacturing techniques and equipment available, allowing more than one glass piece to be made at a time while still looking hand made, which meant his quality jewellery was available to the general public.Entre 1925 et 1939, Lalique est sollicit partout dans le monde en tant que matre verrier. On lui confie la dcoration de la salle manger de premire classe du fameux paquebot Normandie, de lintrieur dune glise Jersey, du palais dun Prince Imprial japonais devenu aujourdhui le muse Teien de Tokyo...*

  • In the top tier of Laliques jewelry creations, made before his turn to mass production of glass, are the Ren Lalique unique Serpents motif objects. Two great variations of this striking Lalique Jewelry design are in world-class museums and their survival provides a great chance to compare and contrast follow-on implementations by Lalique of one of his most amazing design ideas.The piece most often appearing in exhibitions and photos around the world is the 9 Serpents pectoral owned by the Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon. This amazing piece was acquired by Calouste Gulbenkian directly from Ren Lalique in 1908 and it resides in the museum specifically built to house the collections he amassed during his lifetime, including his collection of over 150 of the works of Ren Lalique.

  • The Gulbenkian Serpents creation is classified as a pectoral instead of a brooch due to its amazing size of 21 cm, or over 8 inches long. A similar piece to the Gulbenkians was exhibited in 1900 with strings of pearls hanging from the mouths of the serpents.

  • But another great Serpents motif jewelry piece also appears at exhibition from time to time, this one owned by the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg Russia. The Hermitage is housed in the former Winter Palace of the Czars, and contains over three million art objects in its collections including several works of Ren Lalique. The Hermitage Serpents design takes the form of a pendant, and features 6 Serpents, two of which retain the natural pearl in their mouths, so often used by Lalique in his jewelry.

  • Lalique would often make variations of his great jewelry designs, using and re-using similar implementations of the same motif to create unique objects. In this example, Lalique created objects with different uses and size, but both retain the look and feel so to speak, of the original artistic creation. A study of these two great objects shows not just the influence of Art Nouveau on Laliques jewelry, but also how the same basic design was adapted by Lalique to different purposes, not just of use, but also of effect.*

  • Purse with Two Serpents. Gold, silver, antelope skin, silver thread; 23.1 x 17.9 cm. Private Collection.His Purse with Two Serpents (1901-03) created for Sarah Bernhardt has a clasp of two angry striking serpents cast in silver which guard the contents of the purse.According to Stephen Harrison, Laliques use of fighting snakes as guardians for the contents of a purse references not only the temptation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, but the general mood of titillation that was central to Art Nouveau. The works realism is underscored by the slippery-looking snake skins embroidered into the bags surface with silver thread.

  • The Victorians loved snakes; both Queen Victorias engagement and wedding ring were snake designs! The snake, at least to the Victorians, symbolized unity and eternity, a notion that probably stemmed from the ancient symbol of the ouroboros, or the serpent eating its own tail.

    A pearl of a result for a great example of the art that is Rene Lalique jewelry.Richard Burton, perhaps the most well known among the 8 husbands and other loves of Elizabeth Taylor, was apparently the most prolific jewelry buyer in her life. Burton gave Taylor some incredible pieces of jewelry including for example a pearl (not pictured here) from the 1500s once owned by Englands Mary Tudor and for which Burton paid $37,000 in 1969. This pearl was found in the Gulf of Panama in the early 16th century at a time when Spain was exploring and colonizing the new world. At the time, it was the biggest pearl known, being 56 carats!It was taken to Spain by Don Pedro de Temez, the administrator of the Panama Colony and presented to King Philip. Philip gave the La Peregrina Pearl (la peregrina means the pilgrim or the wanderer
