A Lacloche Frères, Art Deco diamond bracelet, set with old-cut diamonds, weighing approximately 14.50ct, in a geometric, diagonal design, of interlocking rows, with millegrain edges, with engraved sides, mounted in platinum, with French dog marks for platinum and an eagle head mark, for the white gold tongue. The bracelet is signed Lacloche Freres and numbered 68486.

During the 1920s and 1930s the company gained its reputation for refined craftsmanship and elegance of design, particularly in the Art Deco style. They exhibited at the 1925 Paris Exposition des Art Décoratifs, that was held in Paris, over a six-month period, winning a Grand Prix for their display of fabulous jewels including a range of pendants and bracelets inspired by the classic La Fontaine’s fables. 

The economic crash of 1929 had a catastrophic effect on the firm, they filed for bankruptcy in 1931, retaining only a showroom in Paris, which was closed in 1935. Jacques Lacloche opened a small concession in the Carlton Hotel in Cannes in 1936 and in 1938, he used the name SARL Jacques Lacloche and opened in Paris, at 8, Place Vendome, buying from Georges Verger. The company closed in 1960.

Among Lacloche Frères, and later Jacques Lacloche's famous clientele were Queen Victoria of Spain, Edward VII of England, the kings of Greece and Siam, as well as members of the aristocracy, such as the Duchess of Westminster and Prince Rainier, for whom Jacques created a wonderful sapphire and diamond brooch as a wedding gift for Grace Kelly. After World War Two Jacques created bold, brilliant designs for Hollywood stars, other notable Americans and a discerning clientele.
