Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the most popular Cartier jewelry designs?
    Antique and vintage Cartier jewelry crafted between 1910 and 1940, such as the Indian-inspired ‘Tutti Frutti’ design of carved sapphires, emeralds, and rubies, are highly admired by jewelry connoisseurs. The ‘Panthère’ line, designed by longtime director Jeanne Toussaint in the late 1920s, is also inextricably linked to the maison and widely adored by collectors. Additionally, the modern Cartier ‘Love’ collection, designed by Aldo Cipullo in 1969, has become a contemporary classic donned by celebrities such as Pippa Middleton, Angelina Jolie, and Sofia Coppola.
  • Is every piece of Cartier jewelry marked with a serial number?
    Yes. Cartier signs their jewelry and usually includes a serial number indicating where the piece was made and to whom it was sold. In addition to the signature, Cartier jewels will have a hallmark identifying the type of metal used and the country of fabrication.
  • How does Sotheby's determine how much my Cartier jewelry is worth?
    Sotheby's specialists take into account several factors when evaluating your Cartier bracelet, necklace, earrings, brooch, ring, or other jewelry. General condition, the popularity of that Cartier model, provenance, and comparable auction prices all play a role in determining the value.
