WWD gushes that Kate Middleton’s wedding tiara and Grace Kelly’s engagement ring are among the star pieces of an exhibition on Cartier opening in Paris today.

Billed as the most extensive show to date dedicated to the French jeweler, famed for its panther-themed¬†jewelry¬†and Tank¬†watches, ‚ÄúCartier ‚ÄĒ Style and History‚ÄĚ is set to run at the Grand Palais until Feb. 16. It showcases more than 600 items ranging from¬†fine jewelry¬†and watches to decorative objects, many reflecting the influence of exotic locations like¬†China¬†and¬†India. Most are drawn from Cartier‚Äôs extensive archives, but about 100 items are on loan from private collections.”

In an interview with the Guardian, the curator of this opulent exhibit, Laure Dalon, explained its significance.¬†“Cartier is one of France’s iconic companies and is a part of France’s tradition and heritage.¬†It’s not just the actual monetary value of the pieces but their social history, their owners and their place in the history of decorative arts. That makes them priceless, really.”
