Cartier's jewelry exhibition in France is a luxurious demonstration of the company's devotion to creating objects of great value. Luxury items aren't just about quality materials, but are an example of the time and vision put into a particular craft, which is why the exhibition is a rarity.

Therefore, luxury is not the focus of the show, but rather the craft that's involved in making each object a work of art. The exhibition takes place in the Grand Palais in Paris and is entirely dedicated to the art of Cartier.

Although the concept of the show may have raised some skeptical brows, the exhibition showcases Cartier's fine use of metals and stones that not only reflect history, but changing commercial demands through time as well.
