The Cartier Collection: Jewelry (9092)
By FranĂ§ois Chaille and Franco Cologni
With more than 3,000 pieces dating from the 1860s to the present, the Cartier Collection constitutes the worldâ€™s largest collection of its kind. This luxury work traces the history of the collectionâ€™s high jewelry holdings, and attests to the originality and artistic genius that made Cartier a world-class jeweler. The two-volume set showcases the extraordinary pieces from collectors such as Queen Eliza - beth, the Duchess of Windsor, Daisy Fellowes, Barbara Hutton, and Sir Bhupindra Singh, the Maharajah of Patiala, highlighting Cartierâ€™s mastery of the jewelerâ€™s art through highly original designs, unique colors, and legendary precious stones. More than 600 objects and drawings from Cartierâ€™s vast archives, some previously unseen, are reproduced at actual size and include Cartierâ€™s famous â€śbestiaryâ€ť of exotic animals as well as more recent rare brooches, necklaces, and bracelets from the 1960s and 1970s.
