Her Jewels: Cartier and Women
Presented by Hong Kong Palace Museum
Fashion and jewels have always been closely tied to the lives and fates of women. In this regard, the fascinating story of Cartier—one of the most prestigious jewellers in the world—acts as a mirror that reflects social changes and women’s desires. In the early 20th century, the exotic was seductive, and Cartier’s creations were no exception. Inspired by the arts of Persia, Russia, Egypt, India, Japan and China, the Maison sparked curiosity in the West.
