Cartier has a long history of collaborations with celebrities and royalty. Even King Edward VII of England considered him the king of jewelers and the jeweler of kings. In 1902, Edward VII issued a royal warrant for Cartier, enabling him to advertise the fact that he supplies to the royal family. The king also ordered 27 tiaras for his coronation. Cartier received similar warrants from the courts of Monaco, Greece, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Russia, Serbia, Egypt, Belgium and Albania. The Caresse D’Orchidees par Cartier necklace is a fine example of flawless craftsmanship.

Pierre Reniero, Cartier’s creative director confessed that he wanted to create a mysterious collection centered on the orchid, a flower with strength and character that would appeal to sensual women with a strong personality. The necklace is designed for a powerful woman. It is not something for a young girl to wear; she would prefer a rose or a daisy instead.

The orchid is a beloved flower at Cartier for its delicate, feminine appeal. The queen of flowers is strong, but at the same time fragile. Cartier’s skillful craftsmanship meticulously rendered the fragility of the flower, sculpting its petals form precious materials. First used by Cartier 1925, the orchid is a classic motif, giving jewelers the perfect opportunity to combine an array of exotic materials.
