Cartier in India

Jacques Cartier went on his first voyage to India in 1911
Inspired by the culture and brought home precious stones as well as ideas
Indian parades infused with modern twist
Mix of eastern and western culture
In 1957, Mike Todd, Taylor's third husband presented her with Cartier diamond and ruby set while taking a swim. When asked about the set she told the interviewer, "first Mike put it around my neck and smiled. Then he bent down and put matching earrings on me. Next came the bracelet. Since there was no mirror around, I had to look into the water. The jewelry was glorious, rippling red on blue like a painting. I shrieked with joy, put my arms around Mike's neck, and pulled him into the pool after me. It was a perfect summer day and a day of perfect love."
Cartier was the first to pioneer anew style in clock making, as they developed a new technique to make clocks more mysterious and dazzling than ever before
In the 1920s, Indian princes began entrusting Cartier with many unmounted stones to be turned into jewelry
Obtained the nickname "Jeweler to Kings"
Created jewelry for the Maharajah of Patiala and his son (Paris)
Created jewelry for the Maharajah of Nawanagar (London)
These clocks are so mysterious because their arms seem to be floating, no mechanics to move the arms seem to be displayed
All pieces in this collection inspired by India had unusual color combinations that soon enamored everyone around the world
1936 : Daisy Fellowes commissioned the "Hindu Necklace"
Tutti Frutti style soon became a signature mark of Cartier's
As seen in the pictures, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, wears Cartier very often. She even included her love for Cartier on her wedding day to Prince William.She wore a Cartier tiara and earrings. Also, in these pictures she is seen wearing a Cartier watch and necklace.
While this method of clock making is very complicated-based n connecting each hand o a glass disk- these beautiful clocks remain still famous today
In the early 1900s, Louis Cartier began to realize that the wristwatch was the future
-Cartier created the Santos watch in 1904. It was revered for its timeless look and practical functionality. The Santos watch continues to stay a popular style today
-Shortly after creating the Santos watch, Louis creates the Tank watch in 1917. As soon as the first watch sold a legend was born, as its shape and style has influenced the designs of countless watches to come after it.
Louis-François Cartier created a modern creation of wreaths, flowers, bows, and garland motifs-called "The Garland Style".
Cartier was inspired by modern cubist painters, Picasso and Braque, to create a geometric shape style. He then incorporated bold colors from Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Cezanne's work. Some of the colors include jade, coral and lapis.
The world’s leading luxury group, Compagnie Financière Richemont SA, currently owns Cartier, with numerous branches worldwide.
Some achievements that are referenced the most are the panther design, Santos and Tank watches, and the Trinity tri-colored gold combination.
