Cartier is a French jewelry company. They were first founded in Paris in 1847. Cartier manufactures, designs, sells and distributes watches and jewelry. They have sold many of their products to celebrities and royalty, including King Edward VII of England, and to many individuals from the courts of Russia, Siam, Spain, Greece, Belgium, Romania, Serbia, Monaco, Albania, Egypt, and the House or Orleans. King Edward VII said of Cartier, “the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers.” Louis Cartier is the name of the man who founded Cartier. Later on, his son Alfred Cartier took over the business. Cartier did not really see a blossom in their business until Alfred’s sons took over. From then on they became a worldwide business. In 1907, Cartier had locations in New York, London, and St. Petersburg. By this time, Cartier had already developed highly celebrated watches like the mystery clocks, which is a type of clock that has a transparent dial and hidden mechanisms. They also had a plethora of art deco designs that were popular all over the world. In 1972, the business moved out of the hands of the Cartier family and into investors under Joseph Kanoui. They bought the business for a large sum of money.
