Discover 600 of Cartier's masterpieces and the reveal of their never-before-seen high jewellery creations all in one place

We've seen many a SG50 tribute in the months leading up to and after August, but Étourdissant Cartier really takes the cake. The jeweller and watchmaker celebrates our country's golden jubilee with a bang by staging an unprecedented exhibition that invites the public to discover their full collection of high jewellery, haute horlogerie and objets d'arts.

A staggering number of more than 600 creations will be on display, of which 60 will be unveiled for the very first time in the world, here in Singapore. Held at the Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris for one day only, it's needless to say that a trip down will not only uncover the intricacies of Cartier's artisanship, but is also an opportunity to simply bask in the luxe allure of the elegant and stunning designs by the French maison. 

The showstealer, is without a doubt the Étourdissant necklace crowned with a 34.96-carat diamond. And if that still has you in half minds, how about the Diamas bracelet that is an insight into the lost art of diamond threading? Whichever reason you choose to enter Étourdissant Cartier for, gear up for a mind-blowing day discovering the unparalleled beauty and craftsmanship of the house. 

Étourdissant Cartier will be held at Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris on 31 October 2015, 10am - 6pm.
