Until November 22, an impressive exhibition develops in Peking without precedents on “The Treasures of Cartier: King of jewelers, Kings' Jeweler”. In the sample there are exhibited beautiful antiquities of east and Occident in a resplendent stage: the Imperial Palace of the Prohibited City.

More than 350 pieces can be contemplated, included those who date back to the Cartier foundation up to his creations of the 70s. He gathers big part of jewels of the royalty, and learns with historical documents relative to the European real courts. Cartier was an official provider of king Eduardo VII of England, what cost him his reputation as the "jeweler of Kings and the king of Jewelers”.

Many of the jewelry show the influence of the Chinese culture in the Cartier creations, especially at the beginning of the XXth century: use of the oyster, enamels and lacquers, ancient pieces sculpted in jade that small and fantastic animals or gods represent, etc.

This haughty Exhibition registers in the cultural exchange of decorative arts agreed between the Parisian mark of jewels and the Mueso of the palace of Peking, which has already exhibited other Cartier pieces in the Museum of the City Prohibited from 1996.
