  • Lalique Fine Jewelry large Petillante ring ($5,480)

    Like the jewelry that company founder René Lalique created nearly a century ago, the pieces in the Lalique Fine Jewelry collection (www.lalique.com) feature crystal, diamonds, and gemstones. Considered among the most influential artists of the Art Nouveau era, Mr. Lalique caused a sensation with his innovative jewelry designs. The 31 pieces in the new series from the Paris brand are made of sterling silver or 18-karat gold and priced from $420 to $5,840. Lalique will add one-of-a-kind high-jewelry pieces in the spring.
