The necklace can be worn both with and without the pendant and can be taken apart into three parts in the form of bracelets. The bracelet and earrings have the exact same design.

The workmanship is of high quality, only the most precious materials were used. The slightly abstracted C-contours allude to the Cartier logo. Highly coveted jewellery: brilliant-cut diamonds give the piece an intense luminosity.

The set was hardly worn and it is in near-mint condition. Comparable objects fetch prices of up to EUR 200,000 today.

The name Cartier has represented great and increasing value since day one. The company founded in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier in Paris became the purveyor to the court of the French emperor only nine years later.

In 1859 the first clocks were produced and sold under the name of Cartier. After the founder’s son Alfred Cartier joined the company, the first wristwatches were produced and included in their product range.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Cartier also provided the English, Spanish, Portuguese and Siamese courts as well Tsar Nicholas II of Russia with their jewellery, giving Cartier the epithet “king of jewellers, jeweller of kings”.

Branches were opened in other countries, among others on Fifth Avenue in New York and Burlington Street in London.

The company attained worldwide fame in 1904 with the Cartier Santos wristwatch, which is produced to this day. This pilot watch, one of the first with a leather strap, became a fashion highlight of its time.

Another milestone in the company’s history is the Trinity Ring, which was designed in 1918 for a French writer.

Top quality and modern design ensure the company’s status as one of the greatest jewellers worldwide.

Today Cartier produces, besides jewellery, accessories such as cigarette lighters, fountain pens and sunglasses as well as fines leather goods.
