Riassunto: Surveying Cartier's work in platinum since the early years of the century, this book presents hundreds of jewels, including necklaces with swags of diamonds, platinum-cased watches encrusted with rows of diamond pave settings, and flower-shaped brooches of rubies and emeralds. Perhaps best-known are the diamond-and-platinum panther brooches, necklaces, rings and watches designed for the Duchess of Windsor. The book provides an exploration of a great jewellery house, its treasures, and the people who made them. Illustrations of the jewels are augmented by archival photographs, sketches and working designs, many in colour.
