Cartier: Le Voyage Recommencé: High Jewelry and Precious Objects
Author François Chaille and Hélène Kelmachter
A refined volume documenting the new collection of high jewelry from Cartier.
Through Le Voyage Recommencé, its latest collection of high jewelry and precious objects, Cartier pays tribute to the richness of its style. Embarking readers on a prodigious journey, the jewelry showcased in this book explores the Maison’s iconic fields of expression: essential lines, geometry, colors, flora and fauna, and influences from world cultures, to name but a few. The renowned jeweler continually pushes the boundaries of creation to discover new horizons.
Accompanied by text focusing on the concept of style in the arts, the pieces presented in this richly illustrated volume take us on a renewed journey—a voyage recommencé—into the heart of the Cartier style, where creative imagination and superlative savoir faire transform precious stones and materials into magnificent jewelry.
