More than 600 pieces of Cartier high jewellery, haute horlogerie and objets d'art were on display at The Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris last week.

The public exhibition, titled "Etourdissant Cartier", boasted precious heritage pieces from the maison's archive and unique creations from its high jewellery collections.

Highlighted pieces included the Flamboyant ring - featuring a 30.19ct coral bead accentuated by emerald beads, onyx, black lacquer and brilliant-cut diamonds - while the Hyderabad headpiece pays tribute to the maison's signature Tutti Frutti style.

Cartier's latest high jewellery collection, inspired by summer in the French Riviera, boasts a kaleidoscopic selection of coloured gemstone pieces including sapphires, emeralds, rubies, opals, corals, tanzanites, garnets and chrysoprases.
