Cartier’s Passage to India

Inspired by the colorful, flamboyant jewelry made for India’s maharajas in the first half of the 20th century, Cartier unveiled a collection of equally imaginative high-jewelry designs last winter. A new range of Indian-inspired jewelry featuring more everyday designs was introduced in Cartier stores in May. The exotic influence takes the form of delicate lotus floral pendants, filigree rings, and necklaces of dainty layers of gold, diamond, and pearls. Prices run the gamut from $1,450 to several hundred thousand for elaborate gemstone designs. (www.cartier.com)
