After the closure in 1931 of Lacloche Frères, the jewellery firm Jacques had run with his three uncles, he opened a small concession in the Carlton Hotel in Cannes in 1936. However, it wasn’t long before he returned to Paris and opened a shop at 8, Place Vendome under the name SARL Jacques Lacloche. He remained here until the early 1960’s selling bold, brilliant jewels to a discerning clientele including Prince Rainier for whom he created a wonderful sapphire and diamond brooch as a wedding gift for Grace Kelly.
