Cartier is widely recognised as one of the most prestigious jewellery brands in the world. Cartier was founded in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier after he had taken over his master’s workshop amidst the French revolution. With the rise of the Second Empire, Cartier’s business grew over a decade, with the opening of the first Cartier boutique in 1859. The House of Cartier has established itself as a brand of true luxury, quality and prestige. With the brand’s rich history and timeless work, it has served as the crown jeweller to 19 royal houses and an abundance of celebrities.
Cartier eventually transferred it’s family ownership in 1972 however it never relinquished it’s brand commitment to excellence, upholding their reputation as the ‘jeweller of kings’ with each and every release. In particular, Cartier Glasses has forged ahead into the eyewear market due to the brand's impressive range of frame shapes and designs which renders them instantly recognisable.
