  • About Cartier

    Cartier is a French jewelry company brought into prominence by the Cartier family, responsible for many of the world's most famous pieces of jewelry. Today, the company is the top-selling luxury jeweler in the word. The company began in 1847, when Louis-François Cartier takes over the jewelery workshop of his master and named it Maison Cartier. Three Cartier brothers traveled the world, laying the foundation for what would one day be a jewelry empire. The brothers' international travel would influence the jeweler's creations. Cartier jewelry soon became popular with the European royal courts, including the Prince of Wales. Knowledge, skill and style became associated with the Cartier jewelry, which offers high-end contemporary jewelry, including watches.
  • Choosing a Male Wedding Band

    In selecting a wedding band for a male, it is no longer necessary to stick to the flat gold band tradition. What a man does for a living can factor in to what kind of ring is selected, as ergonomically correct rings are now quite common. Platinum is more durable than gold, matte finishes are easily scratched and decorative details and stones are easily damaged. Rings are forever, so choose one that's curved in the interior, not flat for comfort. Meanwhile, diamonds are no longer limited to women's rings, and if done right can be very suitable for a male wedding band.

  • How to order

    Cartier can be purchased in-person only; there are no online sales. Cartier stores are located in select cities in the United States, including New York, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston and Las Vegas. Reach Cartier by calling 1-800-CARTIER.
  • Considerations

    While it is important to choose the right symbol of love, take care not to place brand names or status symbols above what you can afford. It is far more important that the marriage gets off to a good start, not buried in debt because the bride or groom had too high of expectations for the wedding jewelry. If money is an issue, look online for a more affordable ring that closely resembles the Cartier ring that you love.
  • Benefits

    The benefit of owning Cartier is that it is timeless. Cartier has been worn by royalty, and its worth is preserved during times of economic turmoil. Cartier also has a long history in Hollywood. If you have the money, it is worth buying a Cartier for its social and cultural importance on the world stage.
