Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by the jeweller Louis-François Cartier, who in 1899 handed over to his three sons.
They would establish the company internationally, not least by making the Cartier name a favourite among the crowned heads of Europe. Named “King of Jewellers, Jeweller of Kings”, the brand was quick to turn its attention to watches. Many have become modern-day icons, such as the Santos (1904), one of the first wristwatches, the Tortue (1912) and the Tank (1919). They were followed by other noteworthy creations, including the Pasha, the Santos 100, the Ballon Bleu and the Calibre.
The Cartier family retained ownership of the firm until 1964. It is now part of the Richemont Group.
In London, Cartier has seven (7) boutiques / stores. The brand’s flagship store is located on New Bond Street. For this year, Cartier has created a very stunning design on their store to suit the festive time.
Cartier offers a variety of luxury goods in the luxury jewellery industry:
- Jewellery – Multiple collections
- Watches – Great selections
- Bridal – Exclusive services
- Accessories – For both women and men:
There are few things more luxurious than carrying a new designer handbag. Carrying a new designer handbag designed to your own specification is definitely one of them. Cartier has just launched a service – named for muse Jean Toussaint – to allow its customer to do just that. Those confident in their fledgling design talent can let their imagination run wild, with no limitation on colour, stone or finish, but for those who prefer more guidance, a semi-made to measure service offers up a range of choices (including, sweetly, engraving your initials on the inner mirror). Prices start at £1,470.
