CARTIER: JEWELLER OF GENIUS –

Judy Rudoe FSA

The period 1900-1939 saw some of Cartier's most original and imaginative designs - from their pioneering diamond and platinum jewellery of around 1900 to the fascination with exotic influences and the bold geometric designs of the interwar years with their unrivalled brilliance of conception and craftsmanship. This lecture, given by the organiser of the exhibition Cartier 1900-1939 shown at the British Museum in 1997-8 and author of the exhibition catalogue, reveals not only the genius behind Cartier's luxurious jewels, but also the firm’s celebrity clientele, from the royal heads of Europe to Indian maharajahs, American heiresses and stars of film and stage.
