The mythical kiss

In its new collection for the Paris Opera, Lalique reinvents “The Kiss”, a brooch created by René Lalique himself in the early twentieth century. Preserved in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, it features two heads embracing, one sculpted in relief on the front side and the other sculpted into the back. From this heady romanticism, the house reinterprets this brooch today, in polished satin-finished crystal and silver or vermeil.
