Her Majesty’s Trea­sures

The new Cartier Royal Col­lec­tion is tes­ta­ment to the brand’s il­lus­tri­ous his­tory as a jeweller of kings

From an of­fi­cial sup­plier to mon­archs of the Euro­pean and Asian dy­nas­ties of the early 20th cen­tury, to a favoured jeweller of In­dian ma­hara­jahs, Cartier has been a source of ex­quis­ite jew­ellery since the 1850s. This year, the house presents a col­lec­tion of jew­ellery de­signed, above all, to con­vey Cartier’s love of, and ex­per­tise in, gem­stones fit for roy­alty. The range fea­tures truly ex­cep­tional gems, such as a 30.21-carat pear-shaped in­ter­nally flaw­less, D-colour di­a­mond, a 29.06-carat corn­flower blue sap­phire and a 26.60-carat Colom­bian emer­ald.

Driven by this pas­sion for stones, Cartier has demon­strated ex­cel­lence in trans­form­ing th­ese mem­o­rable gems into el­e­gant mas­ter­pieces. The Cartier Royal Col­lec­tion is the re­sult of the tire­less search and ac­qui­si­tion of unique gem­stones, the sto­ries be­hind them adding that ex­tra touch of soul that ren­ders them un­for­get­table.

A pi­o­neer when it in­tro­duced plat­inum to jew­ellery, Cartier also leads the way in tal­ent and bold­ness with its com­bi­na­tions of colours—such as blue and green, or the Tutti Frutti style, and also in the free­dom with which it com­bines di­a­monds, pre­cious and semi-pre­cious stones.

At Cartier, colour tran­scends age; it trav­els be­yond trends and sets the tone. It is com­bined, mixed and blended, ex­ud­ing pas­sion, joy and vi­tal­ity. In or­der to heighten sparkle and mas­tery of vol­ume, Cartier adds an ar­ray of cuts to the mix.

More than a cen­tury and a half af­ter the firm was founded, Cartier’s bou­tiques are still hosts to to­day’s aris­to­crats, a place to find a mag­nif­i­cent piece worth of their rank. Plat­inum neck­lace and ear­rings with Mada­gas­car and Cey­lon
