Cartier Winter Tale: Follow The Panther Cubs

Founded in Paris in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the French company is famous for its fine jewelry pieces and elegant watches.

The house’s iconic pieces include the ”Bestiary” (best illustrated by the Panthère brooch designed in the 1940s for Wallis Simpson), the diamond necklace designed for Bhupinder Singh, the maharaja of Patiala, and the ”Santos” wrist watch, designed in 1904. Currently, these iconic pieces are constantly reworked into Cartier collections in various ways.

The house of Cartier also has a long history of providing jewelry to royal families, starting with King Edward VII of England, who used to refer to Cartier as “the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers”, to the monarchs and leaders of Spain, Portugal, Russia, Siam, Greece, Serbia, Belgium, Romania, Egypt, Albania and Monaco.

This holiday season, Cartier invites you to join a magical journey: Follow the two panther cubs to discover the most luxurious Christmas gifts, carefully selected by Cartier experts. Let yourself be enchanted by the music of ”Edward Scissorhands”, and step into a winter wonderland where the two cubs play hide and seek around the snowy Christmas trees, to find the most gorgeous gifts, for him and for her: fine jewelry, watches and elegant accessories.

This Christmas, indulge yourself and surprise your loved ones with a precious gift that will make the holidays sparkle.
