    About Cartier Brand

    Since 1847, Timeless Excellence has been Cartier’s second name. The brand’s story begins when Louis-François Cartier took over the workshop of his master, Adolphe Picard, in Paris. Initially, Cartier focused on creating high-quality jewelry and watches. His dedication to excellence and attention to detail quickly earned him a reputation among the elite clientele of Paris.

    ​​Even higher quality standards of the Cartier jewelry were set in 1902 by King George VII. That year Cartier made 27 tiaras for the coronation and was officially announced as the crown’s jewels seller. Since then, Cartier was proclaimed as “king of jewelry, the jeweler of kings.” The maker still lives up to this statement.

    The Cartier legacy endured through the generations, with each family member contributing to the brand’s global success. However, in 1964, the Cartier family decided to sell the business. The company changed hands several times but continued to maintain its commitment to quality and innovation. Today, Cartier is part of the Richemont Group, a leading luxury goods conglomerate.

    Compared to other famous luxury jewelry brands, such as Van Cleef & Arpels or Tiffany & Co. who are working with precious stones a lot, Cartier is strictly focusing on diamonds and pieces made of different hues of gold.

    Over the time Cartier created a great number of the truly iconic pieces. From a classic Cartier Love bracelet to the famous Cartier Panther collection and Cartier Trinity, without mentioning a wide variety of Cartier watches — you name it. But our hearts belong to the vintage Cartier jewelry. We appreciate the uniqueness and craftsmanship of our estate pieces. Each of them has a timeless character and tells the most fascinating stories.

    ​The exquisite quality of the Cartier pieces is unquestionable. The Maison continuously keeps creativity, innovative spirit and loyalty to traditions running on the highest level possible. Either you are purchasing a Cartier diamond ring or any other jewelry by Cartier, you are becoming an owner of a symbol of Timeless Excellence.

     

    About botanical motifs in jewelry design

    Botanical motifs in vintage jewelry design have an enduring appeal. Floral-inspired jewelry has always been popular, especially during the Early Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Edwardian eras. But it really took off from the Georgian period onward. Whether as the main element or a delicate touch, flowers were a favorite theme. You’d find them everywhere, from cluster rings to diamond brooches and corsages with flower sprays. Floral symbolism appeared in many pieces. Back in Victorian times, people made illustrated dictionaries to explain the secret meanings of flowers. Victorians loved using flowers to send hidden messages, so jewelry often featured all kinds of blooms, like forget-me-nots, daisies, roses, and tulips, each with its own special meaning.
    Since botanical designs mimic the intricate and diverse forms found in nature, it requires a skilled maker to create a jewel. One of the most celebrated designers for their enchanting floral pieces is VCA. The Flora collection features a variety of flowers in many shapes and forms. From heart-shaped petals of Cosmos and cluster designs of Fleurette to the harmonious Lotus and extremely popular Alhambra, floral designs became a signature of the brand’s collections.
