Cartier & Bulgari: Celebrating Two Iconic Jewellery Houses

Launch Slideshow

To be iconic, a jewellery house must have a strong signature that defines its aesthetics. Cartier and Bulgari, who feature in the Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels sale in Geneva on 15 November, both have this in spades. While the former displays a sharp, graphic, Art Deco-style centred around exceptional stones, the latter is characterised by a softer, more organic oeuvre punctuated with coloured gemstones and yellow gold. Parisian precision or Italian playfulness? If you can, opt for both. Take a look at these 14 highlights from the upcoming sale.
