Dazzling Cartier jewellery – the australian exhibition


Cartier is renowned for its luxury jewels and accessories, beloved by royalty, aristocracy and movie stars. This French-based brand is gracing our shores with Cartier: The Exhibition, an exploration of Mason Cartier’s story, exhibiting over 300 pieces produced between 1900 and 1975. Among these elegant pieces lies a collection of wedding jewellery that is breathtaking and truly exquisite.

In 2011, Kate Middleton showcased the Cartier halo tiara at the Royal Wedding, lent to her by Queen Elizabeth II. Cartier has been cherished by the British royal family since King Edward VII’s first purchase in 1901 and has continued to be cherished by every subsequent monarch to date. In Hollywood, Cartier has also been heavily favoured by movie stars. During 1956 and 1957, actresses Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor adorned jewels by Cartier. While Grace received a striking engagement ring by Prince Rainier III of Monaco: a 10.48 carat diamond set between two baguette diamonds, Elizabeth Taylor was gifted a ruby and diamond necklace by her husband, Mike Todd.

The jewels crafted by Cartier throughout 1900 and 1975 have set the benchmark for luxurious wedding accessories. They are the embodiment of refinement, beauty and authenticity. Cartier invites you to view their timeless pieces at the National Gallery of Australia.
