Exceptional accessories by Cartier.
"Jeweller to kings and the king of jewellers", Cartier is not, however, just about jewellery. The brand also proposes a vast collection of outstanding accessories for women who want to add a touch of elegance and audacity to their different outfits. The following are among the many well-known creations, and definitely worthy of mention: the Panthère, Tank and Must ranges.
Founded in 1847 in Paris by the jeweller Louis-François Cartier, before long the eponymous house made a name for itself in royal courts, counting King Edward VII of England and Princess Mathilde, Napoleon the third's cousin, amongst his most loyal customers. After a few years, the brand decided to enter the watchmaking sector. Opening its first store in London in 1902, another was inaugurated, in New York this time, in 1909. Ever since then, Cartier scarves and headscarves, belts, glasses, small leather goods and wallets, but especially Cartier watches, have remained front and centre of the fashion scene.
One thing is true regardless of the item, from scarves and wallets to the most exquisite watches, Cartier owes its reputation to its choice of materials which are of truly exceptional quality. Designs by this house of jewellery are created in materials like silk, cashmere and exotic leathers, including alligator, crocodile and even lizard skin. They are then embellished with either a plain colour or a print, which is perfect for pairing with everyday looks at any time of the day or night.
