Paris-based Société Cartier, usually called just Cartier, is one of the world’s most time-honoured jewellery and watch brands. A wholly owned subsidiary of Compagnie Financière Richemont SA, Cartier began as a family business in 1847, earning adoration from an exclusive coterie of European nobility and high society members in the many years since its inception. While diamond rings and bracelets remain the brand's trademark items, today Cartier produces fragrances, bags and accessories in its portfolio, which can be found in more than 200 stores in 125 countries.
