    A very good long read from a very source great great great granddaughter Some fascinating sections and details, plus I learned some things about diamonds along the way I enjoy history and biographies and this hit all the right notes Recommended for history fans.I really appreciate the advanced copy for review

    This a comprehensive and new look into the history of a now famous name While the author has a personal connection to the material, being a grandchild of one of the original Cartiers, the material comes across as unbiased and quite intriguing.Definitely worth a read even for those who are uninterested in jewelry, as the story passes through the history of France, England, America, and others, giving an interesting view into the times through the lens of art and fashion.

    Fascinating history of the Cartier Jewelry Empire This was practically all new information for me Appreciated the photos distributed throughout the book I supplemented by going online to see the jewelry in color impactful than b w At 500 pages of text there is a lot of detail that I found very interesting I did receive an ARC of the book via Goodreads Giveaways.

    I won this book from a GoodReads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed this book It s not a book I would have normally read, but it was fascinating to read about the family and how they became the legends they are today A little lengthy, but good.

    I was given a free advance reading copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for a fair review The Cartier family brought jewelry making to a new level with their unique and expensive designs From brooches to necklaces to watches, the name Cartier is synonymous with elegance, class and beauty How it all began is an interesting story beginning with the first jewelry shop owner Louis Joseph Cartier who was born in 1875 He started the ball rolling and passed it on to his son Alfred, but it was Alfred s three sons, Louis, Pierre and Jacques, who turned the business into an art form Their powerful and rich clients including royalty from around the world The fact that the Cartiers survived revolutions, two world wars, and a depression is a testament to the brothers hard work ethic and ingenuity to change with the times Unfortunately, they did not pass these trairs down to all of their children and the three company stores were sold one by one to outsiders The last hold out was the London store, which was run by Jean Jacques, who tried his best, but he finally sold out in 1974 The Cartier story is beautifully told by Francesca Cartier Brickell Jean Jacques granddaughter, but as a family member, she avoids the dirty laundry, which is understandable It would be interesting to read a book about the family written by an objective biographer My only other complaint was the pictures When speaking of specific items i.e., the Wilding boxes , it would have been nice to see a picture of what they looked like I found myself stopping to look up several of the jewelry pieces and items online so I could see them They were always breathtaking The Cartier s legacy will last in the fabulous pieces they created and their unique story will not disappoint.
