Cartier designs, manufactures, distributes and sells jewellery, eyewear and watches. Founded in Paris, France in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the company remained under family control until 1964. The company maintains its headquarters in Paris and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Compagnie Financière Richemont SA.
Cartier is well known for its jewellery and wrist watches, including the "Bestiary" (best illustrated by the Panthère brooch of the 1940s created for Wallis Simpson), the diamond necklace created for Bhupinder Singh the Maharaja of Patiala and the first practical wristwatch, the "Santos," of 1904.
Cartier has a long history of sales to royalty and celebrities. King Edward VII of England referred to Cartier as "the jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers."For his coronation in 1902, Edward VII ordered 27 tiaras and issued a royal warrant to Cartier in 1904. Similar warrants soon followed from the courts of Spain, Portugal, Russia, Siam, Greece, Serbia, Belgium, Romania, Egypt, Albania, Monaco, and the House of Orleans.
Collection Premiere Three “beats” Cartier signature, inspired from the 1930’s jazz atmosphere. The three tubes is an allusion to the famous jazzmen instruments’: trumpet, tuba and other brass. With precious finished- a ruthenium tonality or a golden/ platinum due provide tempo and style to this unprecedented Cartier Eyewear creation.
Santos De Cartier In 1904 jeweller- watchmaker Louis Cartier created one of the first watches on a leather strap so that his friend could read the time whilst at the commands of his plane. This original idea didn’t go unnoticed and Cartier was inundated with requests. This began the Santos De Cartier collection. The screw decor rapidly became a symbol that Cartier would adapt to numerous product lines. Now present on their titanium prescription frames and sunglasses, the screw decor symbolises an encounter between two moments in time: progression and tradition.
Panthere De Cartier First imagined by Louis Cartier in 1914 - his inspiration was that of Jeanne Toussaint. This lady known for her impeccable taste sported bobbed hair, endless strands of pearls and a cigarette-holder held defiantly high. Cartier returns to this theme for a collection of powerful and audacious eyewear in which the panther becomes the true emblem of triumphant sensuality.
C Decor Slim, elongated and taut, the C Décor is a more subtle, sober structure- the result of painstaking diamond machining and polishing. Extending to sunglasses and prescription models, the C Décor gives this eyewear a true signature and transforms it into a unique and precious object. A marriage of contrasts- straight lines and curves, smooth and sharp- the C Décor is the perfect illustration of how Cartier uses time- honoured expertise in the most modern way.
