  • Cartier, founded in 1847, has created a reputation synonymous with the fusion of exceptional savoir-faire and timelessness. Celebrated as the “Jeweller of the Kings”, Cartier continuously pushes the boundaries, striving to achieve excellence in originality beyond one’s imagination.

     

    Embracing Cartier’s historical journey with its luxurious approach, the fundamental belief remains that the gemstones guide each creation. Even the most discerning jewellery collectors turn to Cartier to create exceptional jewels. Craftsmen and designers work seamlessly together to showcase the inherent beauty of each gem, through design and the use of precious metals, encapsulating the essence of the Cartier vision.

     

    Lot 592, designed as a pair of diamond fluted scrolls, set with brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds, to the diamond framed emerald pendent earrings, is reflective of Cartier’s multi-dimensional design aesthetic. The elegant design highlights a matched pair of Colombian emeralds, set with minimal metal settings, emphasizing the play of light to radiate the beauty and transparency of the gemstones.

     

    Lot 593, a 9.89 carat, Colombian emerald, is set in a classic diamond setting, using a surround of marquise cut diamonds. Each diamond is deliberately set at different angles to create light that refracts off each diamond enhancing the exquisite emerald.

     

    Both jewels are testament to Cartier’s distinctive understanding of individual gemstones, expressing each unique personality.

    • Artist Biography

      Cartier

      French

      With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France. Founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making. This incredibly expensive material became the stepping-stone for Cartier to experiment in form, mechanisms and attitude. It helped men move from pocket watches to wristwatches, effectively making the watch much more functional and prominent in a man's overall wardrobe.

      Cartier did not only touch on functionality. Inspired by a commissioned painting by George Barbier featuring a black panther at the feet of an elegantly bejeweled woman, Cartier began incorporating wild animals in his designs—most notably, Cartier Panthère rings, bangle bracelets and watches. Yet it wasn't until the late 1960s that the house of Cartier debuted their iconic yellow and rose gold LOVE collection, which includes the famous bracelet that only a special screwdriver can open.
