Cartier In The 20th Century

Created with the expertise of Cartier Heritage, 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.

Wonderful companion to the Denver Cartier exhibit

Fantastic book! The photographs alone would be worth it. Like all Vendome Press books, it is beautifully printed and produced but there is substance as well as style. A fabulous gift...for others or for yourself!

Discovered this wonderful book at the library of The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, CO during our recent visit in March. Since we would be unable to visit the Denver Museum during their exhibition of Cartier treasures, this was the next best thing! Purchased the book as a gift to my wife. We have both thoroughly enjoyed this volume, and highly recommend it. Superb photography and scholarship about the featured collection throughout!

Bought for a Christmas gift and was perfect. So much has been written about Tiffany and not Cartier. Glad this has changed!

Stunning book, gorgeous photos- I'm kicking myself that I missed the exhibit. Would be worth buying even at a much higher price.

What a great book. So well done. Exquisite photography....great details and close ups. Beautiful packaging/ slip case.

This is a beautiful and informative book. I was very happy that I ordered a copy . Such gorgeous photos ! It was sent securely packaged and arrived in a timely manner ...

Great for all ages. My 7 and 9 year old daughters loved it. My mother-in-law and sister thought it was wonderful. My husband and his dad likes it too.
