The most exceptional new creations from the world's premier jeweler. This exquisitely produced, luxurious tome presents one hundred of the latest creations by the famous jeweler, from high jewelry to precious objects. The Cartier style comes from a wide range of sources and inspirations-the mystery and opulence of China, India, and the Orient; the dynamic geometry of art deco; the energy of modern cities; the voluptuousness of orchids; and the strength and grace of panthers. Influences constantly evolve with the times yet remain faithful to the original style of Louis Cartier, the master of Parisian elegance and the art of high jewelry since the dawn of the twentieth century.

“Befitting the breathtaking diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds featured inside and which have christened Cartier as the “jeweler of kings”, this book presents both its history and jewelry. Archival images, modern photos, design drawings and insights make this must-have retrospective for collectors and fans.” -Indulge Magazine
"Without question, the only language that should be used to describe this unimaginably beautiful volume is with a vocabulary of superlatives."-New York Journal of Books
