When you’re looking for the most exquisite and coveted jewelry in the world, Cartier has always been at the top of the list. The renowned Parisian company has been designing and catering to royal families since it began in 1847. Whether it’s an enchanting diamond necklace or wondrous wristwatches, Cartier creations will stun the eyes and refine your taste. Cartier’s first high end client was Parisian Princess Mathilde, niece of Napoleon I and cousin to then Emperor Napoleon III in 1856. Since then Cartier has served the interests from England’s King Edward VII to actor Richard Burton. Their claim to innovation has long been wristwatches. Cartier created the first jewelry bracelet wristwatch for women in 1888. They broke the pocketwatch mold for men in 1904 by strapping a piece a leather around the timepiece, which was designed for Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. Today their early innovations remain a staple blueprint with modern twists, but the classy elegance remains.
