The Lacloche brothers, Léopold, Jules, and Fernard moved to Paris from Madrid around the turn of the century and established a series of jewelry shops, finally founding the Maison Lacloche Frères at 15 rue de la Paix in 1901. Maison Lacloche Frères was a retail business which selected its works from the top talented designers and workshops of Paris that the public was unaware of. The firm continued to expand, in 1912 opening a shop on New Bond Street in London.
