If you love collecting jewelry, or, like me, jewelry books, you'll find "Amazing Cartier" to be a feast for the eyes. While the beginning of the book starts out as a jeweled bestiary - from giraffes to owls to ladybugs - the latter part of the book deals with jeweled flowers, with pictures so close-up, you feel you could almost reach out and touch the diamonds; and "abstract jewelry", as they call it, which is just as beautiful as any of the other Cartier jewelry in the book.

All in all, an excellent book, worth the money!

Mind-blowing.

This is closest that jewelry comes to being an art form after the 19th Century. It's Cartier. The book is a gem itself, too. It's thick; it's big; it's commanding. I know the popular belief is 'size doesn't matter', but trust me: in this case it does.

Best purchase for any collection.

If you are a lover of Cartier, or just someone who desires to collect, than this is the book you must have! In showcasing the 100 year anniversary of Cartier, this book not only tells of the history of the House of Cartier, but also gives you glimpses of the mistique that has surrounded every Cartier piece. The jewels and the detail that are given to each piece shown, tells us why this jeweler has remained at the top for decades. From the moment I opened the book, I was drooling at the beauty of each and every piece and with the provenance attached to some really gave me sense of what the House of Cartier has strived for in the last 100 years......perfection!!!!
