Fauna and Flora

Fauna and Flora

Half flora, half fauna,
Cartier’s nature
Is free, strong, untameable and beautiful

 

Animals have always found their place at Cartier which elevates their appearance and nature through their plumage, coats and scales as well as their grace, suppleness, vitality and vivacity.

 

Cartier's botanical repertoire stands out for its choice of flowers. Cacti, orchids, edelweiss and thistles: Cartier selects them for their uniqueness without reference nor model. They are free. Taking the form of their own choosing, these blooms are beyond compare.

They captivate with the freedom of materials they combine, the uniqueness of their texture and their natural movement.

 

Cartier is the only great jeweller to have incorporated a master of glyptic art into its workshops. Responsible for engraving and sculpting precious stones and noble materials: fossilised wood, amethyst, morganite and rubellite... An artisan capable of fashioning a form from a piece of quartz, a block of jasper or an agate.

Glyptic art, identified by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage, is a rare expert skill to be preserved and Cartier continues this tradition by passing it down to young apprentices.
