Created with the full co-operation of Cartier, this exquisite book showcases the rich holdings of the Cartier Collection and archive. It features not only a sumptuous array of rings, bracelets, necklaces, and tiaras, but also cocktail and smoking accessories, mystery clocks and lavish objects created by Cartier’s ateliers in Paris, London and New York. Organized thematically, the book features magnificent jewels and accessories owned by such arbiters of taste as Daisy Fellowes, the Duchess of Windsor, Princess Grace, Barbara Hutton and Elizabeth Taylor. Throughout, specially commissioned photographs of Cartier’s legendary jewels are accompanied by vintage photographs – drawn from the Condé Nast and Cartier archives – of these royals, socialites and Hollywood stars in their Cartier finery, including work by Steichen, Horst, Beaton and Charbonneau.
