Cartier’s unique savoir faire, maintained by virtuoso artisans, is combined with perpetually renewed sources of inspiration; together, they have forged the jeweler’s international reputation for excellence and singular beauty. This new volume focuses on the precious stones and artistic techniques of Cartier’s latest High Jewelry creations: unique and exceptional pieces destined for the most avid and discerning collectors. The gemstones themselves are fascinating, and even more so because, in some cases, their beauty also imparts a story. One of those legendary destinies―that of a historical sapphire―is recounted in this book. Diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires set in Cartier’s daring, elegant, and dazzling compositions―each page of this volume is an invitation for readers to admire the master jeweler’s most precious treasures.
