A Look into Cartier’s Travelling High Jewellery Collection

Featuring jewellery studded with glittering diamonds and rare gems, Cartier’s High Jewellery collection brought more than 150 exclusive pieces to Australia in February.

Boasting exquisite vintage jewels and rare pieces, the collection was available to view at Sydney’s flagship last month, beckoning jewellery aficionados to enjoy Cartier’s finest creations.

Dating back to the Belle Epoque era, the Maison’s diamond and emerald Eglantine necklace was a key piece in the travelling collection. Offering a wreath-like design, the necklace is composed of pavé-set diamond petals, old-cut diamond collet stamens and emerald berries.

Originally designed and crafted in 1906, the garland necklace is one of the few Cartier eglantine necklaces in the world. In 2012, it sold for approximately A$1.6 million at Christie’s.
