The History of Cartier

Cartier is a household name all over the world, well known for its elegant watches and jewelry since 1847. Today’s Cartier bears little resemblance to the small shop started that year in Paris by Louis-François Cartier. In fact, it was Louis-François Cartier’s grandsons, Pierre, Jacques and Louis, who first took the company name and reputation worldwide. Today Cartier’s discerning clientele are looking for everything, from cuff-links to 18 carat love, wooden rings and watches bracelets-and everything in between. Cartier normally can be depended upon to deliver whatever is needed, and to achieve this with unmatched style and type.

'Calibre De Cartier Diver' watch

A Wristwatch for a Flyer

Cartier helped popularize the modern wristwatch. In 1904, the pioneering Brazilian aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont's, customary pocket watch was wildly impractical in his rickety aircraft during that time. Santos-Dumont asked his friend Louis Cartier if he could anything about it.  Thus the “Santos” watch was created.  Flat, comfortable to wear, and easily used by a pilot who needed both hands to control his aircraft. It was actually one of the first successful men’s wristwatches and has been a classic selection for gentlemen’s wrists ever since.

Unique, Elegant Designs

Cartier could always be counted upon to create beautiful and diverse elegant designs. Some of the most well-known were the Cartier mystery clocks, (a clock with a see-through dial concealed mechanism) and the colorful Art Deco “Tutti Frutti” jewels. The brightly-colored “Tutti Frutti” bracelets and necklaces captured perfectly the enjoyment-loving spirit from the Jazz Age. Cartier first came to New York in 1909 and by 1917 had a store on Fifth Avenue. In typically unique Cartier fashion, the mansion that housed their storefront on Fifth Avenue was purchased for $100 in cash, and a double-stranded natural pearl necklace worth one million dollars.

The Modern Cartier

The family sold the business in 1964, and Cartier is now owned by the luxury Richemont Group. Cartier continues to sell a number of the finest luxury and jewelry items in the world. Its selection of diamond jewelry is stunning. The chic Trinity De Cartier line features three intertwined bands of yellow and pink, and white gold fashioned into rings, necklaces and bracelets and earrings. Cartier still offers classic watch designs such as the 'Santos' and the 'Tank' as well as brand new ones like a 'Calibre De Cartier Diver' watch in pink gold. For over 150 years Cartier has managed to bring a distinctive vision of elegant design and style into every piece it sells. That may be the real secret from the company’s astounding success and longevity.

Modern Design Inc Review!

Recently I was contacted by Modern Design Inc to do a review on their Tungsten ring line. Tungsten rings are made of a rare and durable metal, that is extremely strong and nearly unbreakable. Unlike traditional metals such as gold, silver, platinum etc Tungsten is quite heavy and has a melting point of 6192 degrees Fahrenheit. Tungsten rings have become vastly popular for it's steel-like appearance and shine. Tungsten rings will look new for years to come, as they are scratch resistant which is a major bonus. 

After finding out so many interesting facts about Tungsten rings, it was hard to make a choice, as Modern Design Inc had so many beautiful rings to choose from. I finally settled on the 'Polished Flat Tungsten Carbide Ring with Beveled Edges and Roman Numerals Engraving'. 

Pros : As mentioned before, Tungsten rings are heavier than the average ring. I was pleasantly surprised, as it wasn't as heavy as I expected it to be; it has a nice weight to it and doesn't feel uncomfortable at all. I love the appearance of the ring, it has a timeless look and feel. A major plus for Modern Design Inc, is that their ring sizes ranges from 3-14 and have either 6mm, 7mm, or 8mm in width. Wonderful sizing options, if you're like me, who has larger and thicker fingers than most. I highly suggest  MDI, as a great option to shop for affordable rings.

Cons : Tungsten rings are targeted for men, and therefore the ring designs are masculine. This is one of three rings that I found to be unisex. I would've liked if there were Tungsten rings specifically for women, with classic and contemporary feminine designs. 

Overall : I will definitely be placing future orders with Modern Design Inc, they have beautiful Tungsten rings at affordable prices, and they're customer service is excellent!
