Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810907704, Hardcover)

Entertaining, informative, and gorgeously illustrated, this authorized volume tells the story of the firm of Cartier from Louis Cartier's first shop in Paris in 1847 through its current predominance in the world of jewelry. With many previously unpublished photographs and working sketches, this volume shows how Cartier set styles and standards in the jewelry field.

Hans Nadelhoffer recounts intriguing tales of transactions that determined the fate of such fabled gems as the Hope Diamond and Marie Antoinette's diamond necklace. Here too are the stories behind W. K. Vanderbilt's gold yo-yos, the famous mystery clocks, dazzling Art Deco vanity cases, and much more.
