50 Years New in Asia: Cartier’s Tutti Frutti, A Vibrant Tale of East Meets West


Cartier’s “Tutti Frutti” creations are masterpieces of East meets West introduced in the 1920s, at the height of the Art Deco period. Rubies, emeralds and sapphires carved in the Mughal-style are captured within expertly-wrought platinum, highlighted by diamonds, onyx and enamel. In 2016, Cartier revived the Tutti Frutti collection by diving deep into their heritage jewels. Created after a hundred years from some of the very first Tutti Frutti jewels, the present lots offered in 50th Anniversary Luxury Evening Sale: The Exceptionals are an homage to one of the most iconic collections from Cartier’s history. Quintessentially a Cartier creation, the bold hues and textures of the gemstones are enhanced by the innovative craftsmanship and extraordinary 21st century design. As a timeless symbol of elegance, these jewels will carry on the legacy of Cartier’s rich heritage for decades to come.

Discover Cartier’s Tutti Frutti and more in 50th Anniversary Luxury Evening Auction: The Exceptionals on 5 April 2023.
