Cartier's legacy began in Paris in 1847, founded by Louis-Francois Cartier, who quickly gained recognition for his exceptional craftsmanship and refined taste. Starting his journey at 28, following an apprenticeship with the master watchmaker Adolphe Picard, Louis-Francois took over the master's workshop at 29 rue Montorgueil. With an expansion and an unwavering commitment to excellence, he moved his establishment to the fashionable Palais-Royal district by 1853, earning the favor of Princess Mathilde, cousin to Napoleon III, and securing his entry into elite Parisian circles. In 1874, the leadership passed to his son Alfred Cartier, who continued the tradition of excellence. By 1898, Cartier had established its permanent presence at 13 Rue de La Paix, a symbol of Parisian elegance and luxury. Alfred's sons, who later took over, were instrumental in continuing the Cartier legacy, with Louis Cartier's pioneering use of platinum and diamonds in jewelry, enhancing the brilliance of diamonds and solidifying platinum's role in fine jewelry craftsmanship.
