About Cartier Exhibit:
Exhibit runs December 19, 2009 through April 18, 2010 at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Cartier came to fame as the "King of Jewelers" for his beautifully made diamond and platinum jewelry created for the courts of Europe and Americans of the Gilded Age. With an extensive variety of jewelry forms-ranging from traditional white diamond suites to the highly colored exotic creations of the 1920s and 1930s-Cartier made its mark with the ingenuity of its designs and its exquisite craftsmanship. Cartier and America celebrates the imagination and creativity of Cartier in the 20th century. The jewelry and works of art include pieces from the private collection of Cartier.
