Few other jewellers demand the same respect as Cartier. The French jeweller and watchmaker has maintained a presence in the upper echelons of luxury ever since its founding by Louis-François Cartier in Paris, 1847. Proof of its premium nature can be found in the number of royal warrants it holds with various royalty around the world, which date back to 1904 following the 1902 coronation of King Edward VII of Great Britain.
