Established in Paris, 1847, by the Frenchman Louis-Francois Cartier. The Maison rose to fame through the dedicated work and creative genius of Louis-Francois’ grandsons; Louis, Pierre and Jacques. The three brothers established Cartier as jewellers to the world’s great, good and glamourous.
Cartier clients ranged from Russian Grand Duchesses, US heiresses and Indian Maharajahs to the Brazilian Aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont and avant-guard French artist, poet and novelist, Jean Cocteau. Cartier’s network grew global during the interwar period thanks to the brother’s close communication and shared vision for ‘Cartier’ style in their Paris, New York and London shops.
Some of Cartier’s most iconic collections were produced by designers, Charles Jaqueau and Pierre Lemarchand. They worked closely with Louis Cartier to transform his rough sketches into wearable masterpieces of timeless chic.
In 1964 the firm was sold to the Swiss Richemont Group. The legacy of the three brother’s shared vision for the firm’s creations continues to enchant. Auction prices for Cartier pieces have simply gone from strength to strength.
