For 150 years, the great firm of Cartier has been transforming precious gemstones into brilliant finery for royal courts and international society.

 

CartierPlatinum by Cartier:
Triumphs of the Jeweller's Art

Franco Cologni, Eric Nussbaum
Hardcover

It is difficult to tell whether "Cartier" or "Tiffany" invokes the most awe.

Either way, all of the photographs, illustrations, designs, and sketches in this oversize book will inspire, amaze, even strike dumb any and all readers.

Cologni and Nussbaum, both Cartier employees, have compiled visual evidence of the strength and beauty of platinum, a precious metal once scorned as a lesser form of silver.

Though, naturally, all items emanate from the company's seemingly limitless archives, the information provided is without commercial boundaries; everything you ever wanted to know about platinum -- history, mining, other uses, little-known statistics, and notes of famous folks and near celebrities -- is included. A companion to three previous volumes on things Cartier: jewelry, accessories and objects, and watches. Barbara Jacobs
