The first Tutti Frutti design was produced for Queen Alexandra of Great Britain in 1901. The original inspiration was a set of three Indian gowns Queen Alexandra had received as a gift, which informed the bright color choices (emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and diamonds) and the East-meets-West aesthetic. The term 'Tutti Frutti' only began to be used to describe these designs in 1970, but today Cartier continues to produce these exquisite pieces which can take thousands of hours to create.
