 Comments

Cartier has an extensive history of using coral, dating as far back as the 1920's when the ever-innovative Louis Cartier (1875-1942) embraced coral elements, which were championed in Cartier jewels for the following sixty years.

As per Francesca Cartier Brickell, great-granddaughter of Jacques Théodule Cartier (1884-1941) and author of ‘The Cartiers’, "Louis had very strong ideas about which colours to put together for maximum effect and the combinations he chose became known as 'classic Cartier'. There was the Eastern-inspired blue and green of course, but there was also the very striking coral and black. White and black (diamonds and onyx) were hard to beat for elegant evening jewels but combined with coral worked in the day too, as did coral and emeralds, and coral and pearls."

Cartier excelled in fine coral jewels throughout the 1960s and 1970s, as they went on to design pieces to be worn in a more casual manner to reflect the lifestyles of the era.
