How Much Is Your Jewellery Worth?
Do you own any Cartier jewellery? Are you curious to know what they are worth? Our Experts can provide an appraisal to give you an estimate of the market price, then help you to ensure the best possible price should you decide to sell.
The Cartier jeweller
The birth of the House of Cartier dates back to 1847 when Louis-François Cartier took over Adolphe Picard’s workshop. The Cartier brand quickly made a name for itself thanks to an initial purchase by Princess Mathilde and later Empress Eugenie. Today, the company belongs to the luxury Richmont group. Its symbolic address is near Place Vendôme in Paris, more precisely at 13 rue de la Paix.
Cartier creations are recognised for their originality and quality of manufacture. Forever in search of innovation, the brand competed for the patent of the “monture invisible” in 1933 with Van Cleef and Arpels. From the beginning of the 20th century, the panther became the brand’s symbol.
A wide range of jewellery
The range of products offered by Cartier is wide. The main products sold are: jewellery, watches, perfumes, glasses and leather goods. Cartier is known all over the world and for its famous customers such as Elizabeth Taylor, the Duchess of Windsor or Jean Cocteau. Since 1983, the house has been buying back its old pieces in order to build up a collection and preserve its heritage, allowing it to organise exhibitions throughout the world.
The Cartier collections
Cartier is also known for its many original creations such as the Tutti Frutti collection, inspired by Egypt and the Maharajas. Some models are symbolic such as the Trinity ring, the Santos watch, the Tank watch or the Love range.
Resale Jewellery Prices
Investing in a Cartier piece can be a wise investment. A white gold panther necklace set with brilliant-cut diamonds sold for nearly 43 350 euros in 2017, as did a semi-rigid white gold bracelet “Panther” set with diamonds and sapphires, which sold for 65,000 euros. In 2018, a rectangular case with two compartments in silver and gold sold for almost 100,270 euros.
Authenticate a Cartier piece
Like a large number of luxury brands, Cartier falls victim to counterfeiting and, to a lesser extent, to fashion. An expert’s support is essential when it comes to authenticating a piece and selling it at the right price.
