Tra i suoi gioielli più preziosi ci sono gli orecchini di diamanti realizzati per Lady Margaret Greville nel 1929, lasciati poi in eredità ad Elisabetta II, moglie di Giorgio VI che poi li donò all’attuale Regina. Un altro prezioso di inestimabile valore è una meravigliosa spilla a forma di giunchiglia che al centro vanta uno dei più bei diamanti rosa del mondo; questo fu donato dal geologo canadese John Williamson alla principessa Elisabetta, nel 1947, in occasione delle sue nozze con il principe Filippo Mountbatten.

Cartier’s relationship with the City of London dates back to 1902, when Jacques decided to open a shop in New Burlington Street and then, in 1909, it was moved to New Bond Street. The talent of his brother, Louis Cartier, made him the most prestigious jeweler in the world and allowed him to become the official royal courts’s jeweller. Thus in the 20th century, the Prince of Wales, the future King of England Edward VII, proclaimed Cartier “jeweler of kings, kings of jewellers”. Among his most precious jewels there are the diamond earrings, made for Lady Margaret Greville in 1929, later bequeathed to Elizabeth II, wife of George VI, and then donated to the current Queen. Another priceless jewel is a wonderful floral brooch. In the middle there is one of the most beautiful pink diamonds in the world; this was donated by the Canadian geologist John Williamson to Princess Elizabeth in 1947, on the occasion of her wedding with the Prince Philip Mountbatten. Cartier always maintain unchanged its extraordinary charm and his natural savoir-faire.
