The inimitable Cartier style is the product of a wide range of inspirations and this sumptuous new volume is divided into chapters devoted to influential categories including the mystery and opulence of China, India, Africa and the Orient; the energy of striking, iconic architecture; the voluptuousness of Orchids; and the strength and grace of Panthers—one of Cartier’s most treasured signature motifs.

Featuring 230 color images, many of them full-page to show every exquisite detail, this lavish book presents one hundred pieces from Cartier’s most recent collections: modern pieces of high jewelry and precious objects conceived in the spirit of Cartier’s traditional values of creativity, authenticity, and originality.

The book traces the artistic threads and historic sources that have shaped the firm’s distinctive style, with design sketches and period photographs that complement the larger-than-life images, telling the stories of past creations and explaining the evolution of contemporary designs. A visual feast of bold design, HIGH JEWELRY AND PRECIOUS OBJECTS BY CARTIER is a tribute to the storied house’s unique creations, and is an essential reference for collectors. 

A Must-Have book for all Cartier jewelry design enthusiasts!
