Cartier Treasures: King of Jewellers, Jewellers to Kings

"Cartier Treasures: King of Jewellers, Jewellers to Kings" exhibition will be on show at the Palace Museum in Beijing, China from 5th September to 22nd November 2009.

The exhibition assembles the essences of the East and West, demonstrating the Palace Museum's dedication to world art.

More than 350 items will be unveiled, dating from Cartier's beginning to pieces from the 1970's. Partly dedicated to royal jewels, the exhibition will be housed in China's former Imperial Palace and will be illustrated by historical documents relating to European royal courts, which earned Cartier thanks to King Edward VII of England, its reputation as the "Jeweller of Kings and King of Jewellers".
