Société Cartier is a French luxury goods company which designs and manufactures luxury jewellery and watches.
The company was founded in Paris, France, in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier.
Cartier is known for its jewelry and wristwatches.
Cartier has a long history of sales to royalty. For example, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has been seen wearing the Cartier Ballon Bleu watch. King Edward VII of England referred to Cartier as “the jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers.”
For his coronation in 1902, Edward VII ordered 27 tiaras and issued a royal warrant to Cartier in 1904. Similar warrants soon followed from the courts of Spain, Portugal, Russia, Siam, Greece, Serbia, Belgium, Romania, Egypt, Albania, Monaco, and the House of Orleans.
