Consecrating Cartier's new collection of high jewelry and precious objects, this volume, with its one hundred original and innovative pieces, is a celebration of an integral aspect of the iconic brand: color. Brimming both with striking contrasts and more delicate tones, the jeweler's palette positions itself in the midst of an intimate conversation between the art world and reality in all of its cultural diversity, thus allowing for the jeweler to expand his or her creative horizons unhindered. Through the exploration of continents and seasons, the juxtaposition of tradition with modernity, and the play on connotations associated both with stones and other more noble materials, Cartier continues to follow in the footsteps paved by its founding brothers, and to create breath-taking and unique pieces.

All the world revels in color; and since high jewelry and the notion of celebration are inextricably linked, Cartier's collection, with its astonishing rainbow-like palette, as immortalized in this volume, provides us with a new ode to joy, an ode to life in all its glory.
