Paris might be known as the city of lights, but by hosting the Cartier: Style and History exhibit, it can easily become the city of jewels. presented at the Grand Palais, this show displays some of the more luxurious pieces of jewelry in the history of man. Dedicated specifically to the art of Cartier, it features everything from heirlooms to recent designs.

The Cartier: Style and History exhibit puts the vision of the company on a pedestal. Wallpaper writes, "But it is the design vision of Louis Cartier, who with his two brothers set up his eponymous jewellery business as a force in its own right in the late 1800s, that really intrigues. His tendency towards classicism created a solid design framework that offered his creative teams the freedom to do almost whatever they wanted, without ever straying from the Cartier identity."
