Cartier’s traveling fine jewelry collection arrives in Australia
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Our proximity to the rest of the world leaves Australia isolated from the many glamorous riches the industry enjoys overseas. Travel restrictions have instead left us hunched over decadent designs via the dense blue lights of our laptop screens. From February 8-18, a sense of sartorial respite arrives at Cartier’s Sydney flagship store, which will host a traveling 150-piece fine jewelry collection.
Available by appointment only and for 10 days, customers are invited to explore the collection and purchase a slice of Cartier history. The offer presents five Cartier themes.
The first is Cartier Tradition – salable Cartier creations from the last century, brought back and restored in our workshops with our expertise with Cartier Tradition an opportunity to own a rented slice of history. 20 pieces are available and include a number of pieces from the Art Deco period (1918 – 1939) including the Tutti Frutti bracelet and the diamond pendant brooch and the remaining styles from the new era of femininity (1939 – 1970), the modern period (1970 – 1990) and contemporary era (1990 – gift). the the oldest piece is a statement necklace from the Belle Epoque period, circa 1906.
The traveling collection also includes pieces of Panthère de Cartier – the Maison’s emblem, both figurative and abstract interpretations – Incredible Diamond, Flore et Faune creations – nature as a source of inspiration in High Jewelry – and central stones – rubies, sapphires, emeralds.
To celebrate the arrival of the High Jewelry collection in Australia, Cartier organized two gala events in the unique location of Phoenix, in the heart of the port city. To accompany this extravagant affair, a bespoke performance was unveiled by the Sydney Dance Company and choreographed by Raphael Bonachela, Cartier’s new brand ambassador.
