cartier The Cartier: Style and History exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris chronicles the evolution of taste, whims and indulgences over the past 160 years. Six hundred shimmering Cartier jewels, watches and precious little objects are gathered under the grandiose soaring steel and glass arches of the Grand Palais. The result is an intriguing and achingly beautiful insight from the mid-1800s onwards into what Cartier created for the wealthiest men and women in the world when looking to adorn, delight and impress – or simply have something nice to put on their desk.Replica Cartier Watch Shop While clothes may decay and photographs fade, the bright colours and box-fresh excitement of jewels always best capture the zeitgeist and aspirations of an age. Arranged chronologically, one of the first cases displays a revolving carousel of diamond tiaras that shower out sparkles of light and revolve just slowly enough to take in their delicate grace. It’s like standing pressed against the wall at a ball during the height of the Belle Époque.cartier watches for sale online The Art Deco era is reflected in the geometric patterns of diamond and onyx bracelets, swaying tassled pearl necklaces and bandeau-style tiaras; while the Egypt-mania which followed Carter’s discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922 comes to life in the Twenties collection of pharaonic themed jewels such as a striking sky-blue scarab beetle with emerald and diamond wings. The excitement and exoticism of the Orient that swept Europe in Twenties and Thirties is evident in glossy red lacquers, emeralds and carved jade objets and jewels.best cartier replica watches The divas of Hollywood make a grand entrance thanks to a selection of bold jewels worn by Gloria Swanson, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Deitrich and Brigitte Bardot. Each jewel is as individual as the women themselves, such as the unusual pair of bejewelled crocodiles that together form an unconventional necklace for eccentric Mexican actress María Félix. Wallis Simpson’s famous panther brooch from 1949, meanwhile, earns a display case of its own. The diamond and sapphire pelted feline places a possessive paw over an 152-carat Kashmir sapphire, its tail curled in delight.cartier fake There is plenty of majesty on show including the 1936 "Halo" tiara the Duchess of Cambridge wore on her wedding day. Made in Cartier’s London workshops, it was loaned to her by the Queen whose Williamson flower brooch with its impressive central pink diamond is another highlight of the show.cartier watches women But nothing trumps the jaw-dropping Maharajah of Patiala’s splendid bib necklace with diamonds the size of conkers that can be seen from across the vast room. This, I believe, was the Maharajah’s intention when in 1928 he asked Cartier to re-set the jewels. Some of the original diamonds have since been lost and replaced with replicas, but the effect is no less impressive.While the grand and magnificent jewels may steal the limelight, it is the little revelations that delight. The exhibition offers a titillating insight into the less majestic, more intimate nick-nacks that filled the lives, drawers and shelf space of the wealthy, such as the 1902 blue and green enamel and diamond umbrella handle complete with eight gold tips on the ribs.But one of the most memorable creations has to be a 1907 trio of perky bulldogs – or “bouledogues” as the French have labeled them – that fit in the palm of your hand, each carved out of a different variant of quartz imitating brindled or smooth canine fur complete with twinkling diamond eyes. How’s that for unbridled indulgence? Cartier: Style and History, December 4 - February 16, 2014
