Louis-François Cartier (1819-1904) took over the jewelry workshop of the master-craftsman Adolphe Picard at 29, Rue Montorgueil in Paris.
Cartier, the renowned French jeweller and watchmaker, has been associated with fine jewels since 1847. Cartier's creations illustrate the inventiveness of a jeweller who is inspired by history, and resolutely focused on the future. The maison's creations are designed to be timeless. Each creation represents a moment, an event, a story, an emotion. This is the first standalone travel retail store in Singapore.
At Cartier, jewelry creations are born of a meeting between the jeweller and the stone, the creator and precious metals. It all starts with an idea, a particular stone, a desire for colour, a material, a shape or a special fascination and the will of an explorer and a magician of the impossible. From the initial design to the final piece, all the traditional branches of the jewelry trade unite their talent and expertise at the service of the Maison to give birth to a jewel. Polished to perfection, the jewel is created for pleasure - to revel in beauty and dreams.
