About

Enchanting Cartier brooch Pin crafted in 18 karat yellow gold and platinum, featuring 117 round brilliant cut and marquise cut diamonds weighing approximately 4.5 carats total, F color, VS clarity. This delightful brooch pin depicts a birds’ nest full of diamond encrusted baby chicks, beaks open wide, being fed by the diamond encrusted mother bird, while the diamond encrusted father bird watches protectively. The branches of the tree are embellished with diamond leaves. The brooch pin captures the unparalleled beauty of nature in a scene so rich in the beauties of life. This unique piece of fine jewelry exemplifies the fine craftsmanship and attention to detail which is synonymous with the House of Cartier. Founded in Paris in 1847, by Louis-Francois Cartier, the company known as Cartier quickly became recognized for its exemplary workmanship and taste. Louis-Francois Cartier began his esteemed career at 28, after an apprenticeship with master watchmaker Adolphe Picard resulted in Cartier taking over the master’s workshop, 29 rue Montorgueil, Paris. He expanded the premises, and built his reputation on knowing how to satisfy the most extravagant of desires. By 1853 Louis Francois was able to move his business to the more fashionable Palais-Royal district at 5 Rue Neuve des petits Champs. He became a favorite of Princess Mathilde, the cousin of Napoleon III, whose patronage opened the door to Parisian society. In 1874 Alfred Cartier took over the company from his father Louis Francois. In 1898 the Cartier company made a final move in Paris and they still remain at 13 Rue de La Paix, in the heart of Parisian elegance and luxury. Alfred Cartier entrusted his three sons to manage the Maison de Cartier. Among Louis Cartier’s most important and lasting innovations was introducing the combination of platinum and diamonds to create garland style jewelry. Cartier wove the platinum into extremely fine threads in order to bring out the sparkle of the diamonds, making platinum a legitimate and irreplaceable precious metal in jewelry making.
