Merge the two most exquisite materials in the world and what do you get? The Lalique Gold Luster collection. Blending gold and crystal, the latest collection from the luxury glass and jewelry company combines the symbols of the East and West: gold symbolizes good fortune and prosperity in the East while crystal exemplifies luxury in the West.

The pieces from the Lalique Gold Luster collection also feature specific animal motifs, like the fish and turtle, which have special significance in Chinese tradition. Fish are considered to be symbols of fortune and wealth, whereas the turtle (or tortoise) express longevity and strength.
