The Art of Being Unique

Cartier’s uniqueness lies in the overall effect of its savoir-faire and techniques and its ability to unite rare crafts, preserving them in a constant search for innovation.

 

 

 

 

The Tutti Frutti style is at the heart of Cartier’s repertoire. Its most recent expression is the Maharajah necklace, a High Jewellery creation which showcases an exceptional assembly of emeralds, sapphires and rubies, all set in accordance with ancient Indian know-how.

 

 

 

 

For the panther, Cartier’s artisans use the technique of “fur” setting, a unique Cartier savoir-faire. One by one, the animal spots, in sapphire or onyx, are uniquely hand-carved. The jeweller surrounds them with grains of metal which he folds into tiny threads on the stone. The fur is amazingly lifelike, the material awakens and provokes emotion.  

 

 

 

 

Five years of constant exchanges in the workshops and two patent applications have presided over the birth of the Révélation watch. According to a technique inspired by the hourglass, the dial of the Révélation watch showcases a fleeting spectacle: depending on the movements of the wrist, 650 diamonds appear and reveal the jaw of a panther. Before disappearing again. A picture brought to life which combines advanced technology with traditional crafts.
