Sneak peek: Inside Cartier's Grand Palais exhibitions
Cartier's collection of haute jewellery tell the story of inspirations sought from nature and exotic locations. It's for these very reasons that the maison was invited to feature in two new exhibitions at the Grand Palais – Jardins and From the Great Mughals to the Maharajas: Jewels from the Al Thani Collection.
Jardins, an all-encompassing exhibition that also includes paintings, photography and installations, focus on the evocation of the senses by gardens and parks. Here, 17 pieces by Cartier inspired by flowers are on display complemented by a platinum flower brooch that was created in 1941 and bedecked with diamonds. Cartier's Indian-inspired pieces will also be showcased under the exhibition titled From the Great Mughals to the Maharajas: Jewels from the Al Thani Collection. Some of the Cartier highlights here include the Hindu necklace and the turban ornament which includes a Tiger Eye diamond, made exclusively for the Maharaja of Nawanagar in 1937.
