UN-VEILED: Glitz and Glamour at Cartier

May 19, 2009

To celebrate its New York store’s 100th anniversary, Cartier—the legendary Parisian jeweler—has set up a special exhibit at their Fifth Avenue Mansion of gold bracelets, sapphire rings, and diamond necklaces worn by some of the most glamorous celebrities from old-time Hollywood, like Princess Grace and Vivien Leigh. If you’re like me, you’ve only heard about Cartier’s famous jewelry but have never seen it up close. (They tend to loan it to A-list celebs, not editorial assistants!) I thought Elizabeth Taylor’s jewels from her great love Richard Burton stole the show, notably the pearl, ruby, and diamond necklace named La Peregrina. The exhibit runs through Thursday, May 21. –Jackie, Un-Veiled
