The House Cartier
In the heart of Paris stands a jewelry store founded by Louis-François Cartier in 1847. Less than ten years later, the store was supplying Parisian high society, thanks in part to the purchase of a piece by one of Napoleon III's family members. The European elite then became interested in his work. Under the impetus of Louis, the founder's grandson, the company moved to a more affluent neighborhood, rue de la paix. It was he who forged its identity, while his two brothers contributed to its international expansion. His neoclassical style plays with abstraction, geometric shapes and bright colors. He also introduced the use of platinum. In 1904, he became the official supplier to the English court, then to Spain, Siam, Russia and others. The wristwatch made its appearance that same year, in response to a request from one of his aviator friends. It became an iconic piece. In 1933, Jeanne Toussaint, "the Panther", left her mark on the House of Cartier for nearly fifty years, making it the benchmark in the world of luxury.
