This beautifully produced volume is dedicated to the new collection of high jewelry from Cartier.

The rare and audacious association of precious and fine gemstones--like amazonite enhanced with diamonds or rubies, or an opal matrix paired with sapphires--creates striking combinations that form the foundation for a novel approach in high jewelry. This passion for the infinite diversity of stones and singular materials has been fundamental at Cartier since the house's inception. Such amalgamations generate an unexpected dialogue between contrasting elements--the rough with the ornamental, mineral with landscaped, bold colors with changing nuances, earth with cosmos.

This exquisitely crafted volume--featuring elaborate production characteristics including multiple paper stocks, Swiss binding, an insert, and illustrations from the ateliers--celebrates the pioneering spirit of Cartier, its creativity, and the surprising beauty of the stones.
