The Cartier Story

Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by the jeweller Louis-François Cartier, 
who in 1899 handed over to his three sons.
They would establish the company internationally, not least by making the Cartier name a favourite among the crowned heads of Europe. Named "King of Jewellers, Jeweller of Kings". The Cartier family retained ownership of the firm until 1964.
