Cartier: Style and History in Paris from 4th December

January 1st, 2014

Cartier Exhibition at The Grand Palais from the 4th December 2013

Cartier is a jeweller with a sparkling reputation for creating the finest in decorative pieces. Cartier: Style and History will delve into the pivotal role the jeweller has had in the development of the arts. It will explore its diverse collection of creations, including the classical, the modern and the royal. Some 500 pieces of exquisite jewellery will be showcased at the exhibition, while paintings, posters and furniture will also be displayed.

The House of Cartier's Royal Connections and Symbolic Designs

The Panther is an image present throughout the works and is perhaps the House of Cartier's most iconic symbol. It first appeared in 1914 as a subtle arrangement of gems on a watch, and has since gone on to feature across the range. In 1933 Jeanne Toussaint was elected Director of Fine Jewellery and the men around her were astonished by her confidence, ambition and grace. For this reason, for the first time ever, femininity was explored through the panther and it came to appear on necklaces, broaches and bracelets. The Panther was a design fiercely desired, so much so that it was ordered in form of a bracelet by Wallis Simpson, who married Edward VIII and became the Duchess of Windsor.
