By

The definitive name in exquisite craftsmanship, Cartier has been collecting some of its finest pieces from private owners, retailers and at auction since the 1980s, and has now amassed more than 1,450 items.

Working in partnership with Madrid’s Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, 400 pieces will be on display at this special exhibition covering six themes from Cartier’s history. The themes, including Head Ornaments and Oriental Pieces with brooches, tiaras and necklaces from the early 20th century, reflect some of Cartier’s most classic designs and highlight the brand’s evolution over time. The exhibition also includes rare private items on loan from the Spanish Royal Family and Palace of Monaco.

Curators have also dug out out sketches and designs from Cartier’s archives in Paris, Londfon and New York to really bring to life the journery from pencil and paper to unadultered perfection as a finished piece.
