Located near René Lalique’s original workshop on the Place Vendôme in Paris, the new two-level Lalique boutique on the rue de la Paix celebrates its founder’s first passion: jewelry. In celebration of the new store, the French luxury-goods house has unveiled a brand-new jewelry collection, Soleil de Gaïa.

Before delving into glassmaking in the early 20th century, Lalique’s founder specialized in designing art nouveau jewelry and accessories, including necklaces and hair combs. A collection of combs inspired by these vintage pieces is displayed on the new boutique’s lower-level salon, alongside contemporary limited-edition designs such as Lalique–Parmigiani Fleurier table clocks, Caran d’Ache diamond-and-gold pens, and crystal perfume bottles. Many of René Lalique’s original jewelry drawings are also on display, as are short video installations that illustrate the artist’s early life.

The boutique’s main level presents an extensive collection of roughly 200 pieces of jewelry, including the Soleil de Gaïa line, which offers radiant new necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. The main level also features a bridal section where clients can create bespoke engagement rings and wedding bands. In a nod to the company’s heritage, the boutique offers a collection of signature designs inspired by Lalique’s early fine jewelry, such as the Gourmande ring ($170 to $220) and the black-crystal Mascots cuff links ($395). Even the chandelier in the shop’s foyer pays tribute to Lalique’s past designs—it is made with 2,500 Gourmande rings. (212.355.6550, www.lalique.com)
