Synopsis: CARTIER AND AMERICA

As opulent as the treasures it celebrates, this lavish volume presents Cartier's timeless designs worn by some of the twentieth century's most legendary figures. It's been one hundred years since the House of Cartier opened its doors on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Since then the luxury jeweller has been creating exquisite brooches, bracelets, tiaras, timepieces and other objects - including scent bottles, so-called mystery clocks, and handbags -- many of them specially commissioned by their illustrious patrons. Readers will see Gloria Swanson's bracelet from Sunset Boulevard, Douglas Fairbanks' elegant watch, the Duchess of Windsor's panther brooch, and Grace Kelly's 10.47-carat diamond engagement ring, as well as items owned by Marion Davies, Vivien Leigh, Barbara Hutton, and Elizabeth Taylor. Author Martin Chapman offers an in-depth exploration of how Cartier conquered America, from its European birth in 1847 to its arrival on the other side of the Atlantic and from its whimsical Art Deco creations to the red carpet prominence that linked the name Cartier with fame, wealth and exclusivity. In addition to stunning colour images of each object, the book features photographs of stars and heiresses wearing their Cartier jewellery from Manhattan to Hollywood. A beautiful volume for fashion aficionados, this treasure trove of jewellery is a tribute to Cartier's ingenuity and unmatched craftsmanship.
