Item description for The Cartier Collection: Jewelry by Francois Chaille...

This sumptuous collector's volume showcases, at actual size, over 600 objects and drawings from Cartier's vast archives-many for the first time. The text recounts how this collection of over 1,200 items, dating from the 1860s to the present, was formed; explains the antique jewelry market; and imparts the artistic genius that places Cartier among the world's premier jewelers. Devoted to fine jewelry, this book presents pieces that were designed for the Duchess of Windsor, Daisy Fellowes, and Barbara Hutton alongside the Maharadjah of Patiala's recently restored necklace that once contained the famous De Beers diamond. Fascinating stories and complete technical details present Cartier's most artful creations, from glittering tiaras to pieces from the famous "bestiary" of panthers, dragons, chimera, birds, and crocodiles, as well as rare brooches, necklaces, and bracelets.
With its lavish slipcase, over a dozen gatefolds, extensive documentation, illustrated chronology, and index, this book is a must for specialists in the decorative arts and jewelry, and a publishing event for the quality of its design and reproductions.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cartier Collection: Jewelry?

I'm very unsatisfied about the price gap between two identical products, and lack of responses  May 14, 2007
Hi,
Althought I've bought the exactly same products, the price gap between them was over 100 dollars. I don't understand hos this happens. And secondly, I'm getting frustrated about my returned item. You are not responding for such a long period of time, and there's no way to contact you guys directly.
Please review over my past purchases and tell me what is going on.

Thank you
 
MESMERIZING = CARTIER  May 13, 2006

THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING I EXPECTED & MORE; BEAUTIFULLY PRINTED & ENCASED IN A LUXURIOUS FOLDOUT BOX--A JEWEL ITSELF FOR ANY LOVER & COLLECTOR OF ORNAMENTS. ITS' MASSIVE SIZE & OVERALL QUALITY JUSTIFY ITS' PRICE. I AM MESMERIZED BY THE ARTISTRY & VERSATILITY OF CARTIER.
 
Must have!!!  Jan 11, 2005
This book is a must have for any true jewelry book colector.
This book was worth every dollar Its presented in a large ribboned slip case and the pictures inside are the best I have seen on Cartier in the one book. Layed out very symply with large clean white pages with indepth item discriptions.Not to much indepth writing or archive drawings but this is one of the best books on jewlry around.
