Cartier Eyewear


The Scoop on the Cartier Eyewear Brand:

Cartier is regarded as one of the most prestigious jewelry manufacturers in the world. In 2018, it is ranked by Forbes as the world's 59th most valuable brand. Cartier has a long history of sales to royalty. King Edward VII of Great Britain referred to Cartier as "the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers."

In terms of innovation, Cartier invented the first wristwatch. For ages watches were kept in the pocket of gentleman or on a piece of jewelry for women. Louis Cartier designed a leather strap to be worn on the wrist with the head of a watch, which would later become the model known as the Santos. The wristwatch was designed for Aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, a friend of Cartier. It’s no secret that Cartier’s iconic sunglasses model also is names the Santos.

Cartier glasses and sunglasses are made in France and Italy. Cartier eyeglasses are constructed of the finest and precious metals, woods, horn, and acetates. Each individual Cartier eyeglass frame is painstakingly produced by European artesian craftsmen. Beauty in simplicity, each piece of Cartier eyewear takes considerable time to fabricate and assemble. They maintain that there can be as many as 200 unique production steps involved in the construction of one finished piece.

It would be remiss to not touch on the origin of the Cartier panther. In 1917 Louis Cartier gave his lover, Jean Toussaint, an onyx vanity case that featured the Maison’s first full-body panther, made with diamonds and onyx. This gift carried sentimental weight for the couple; Louis Cartier nicknamed Toussaint “La Panthère” after her elegance and striking determination. The Cartier panther is celebrated in many forms of the Cartier jewelry collection. Building upon the significance, the panther is reflected throughout the woman’s Cartier eyeglasses collection.

Cartier eyewear is also a fashion favorite for celebrities. The “red carpet” is a destination filled with wearing Cartier glasses and watches. A short list of A-listers who wear Cartier eyewear include Christopher Walken, Fergie, Elton John, Lil Kim, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Michael Douglas.
