About This Book

The secret of a unique expertise, guarded by master jewelers, and the brand's long-running commitment to self-reinvention have won Cartier its reputation for excellence and outstandingly beautiful designs, admired the world over. This exquisitely produced, luxurious tome presents the latest creations by the famous jeweler, from high jewelry to precious objects.

The unique savoir-faire of Cartier jewelers throughout history has founded the image of excellence and the reputation for singular beauty that Cartier is known for around the world today. Precious stones and the craft of fine jewelry-making are the subjects at the heart of this latest volume, displaying the newest Cartier creations: unique and exceptional pieces, designed for great collectors. The great fascination that these precious stones inspire is linked, for many, to the story behind their beauty: one of these astonishing, romantic tales—about a legendary sapphire—is revealed in this book. Gleaming with diamonds, rubies, and emeralds set in elegant and audacious compositions, this volume invites the reader to admire these treasures illustrated beautifully on each page.

Reviews

  • "The eminent house of luxury jewelry is known for enduring excellence as well as constant innovation. Admire this collection of treasures in this volume of Cartier creations." 
    -THE SOCIETY DIARIES

    "How can this book be adequately reviewed when there are not possibly enough superlatives to describe and discuss Cartier Dazzling: High Jewelry and Precious Objects? Dazzling, as in the title, even seems to be understating the contents of this wondrous and spectacular monograph about one of the greatest heritage brands of our time. This is one of those books that come along once in a very long time. . . Unquestionably this is one of the great books of its genre."
    -NY JOURNAL OF BOOKS

    "[Cartier Dazzling] offers a glorious look at the jewelry house's latest high jewelry collection, Étourdissant . . . For those looking for glimpses of vintage glamour, the tome does not disappoint."
