In 1847 Louis-Francois Cartier took over the jewelry studio of his master, Adolphe Picard in the Rue Montorgueil No. 29 in Paris, which laid the foundation for the Cartier jewelry empire.
To keep the family tradition alive, Louis-Francois Cartier continued his craft to his son, Louis-Francois Cartier, Alfred in 1874 and gave him the jewelry line. Alfred appoints first turn, shortly after his eldest son with partner, years later, and all three sons.
The quality and skill of Cartier’s jewelry was his instantly popularity. It did not take two generations to Cartier who received great reputation worldwide. This was the future king of England, the Prince of Wales again underlined by Cartier to “Jeweler of Kings, King of Jewelers” said.
