GIAAAHK Seminar – “CARTIER OBJETS D’EXCEPTION” Exceptional Objects of Cartier

The GIA Alumni Association wishes everyone an abundance of health,
prosperity and success in the Year of Tiger! To mark the beginning of the
Lunar New Year, we have pleasure of inviting Mr. Gilles Zalulyan1, a vintage
jewelry dealer, and Mr. Olivier Bachet2, the author of “Cartier. Exceptional
Objects”, to host a webinar again. This time, together with a seasoned
Chinese Antique expert, Mr. Samson Ng3, the focus is about the stories
and symbolism of Chinese inspirations appearing on Cartier exceptional
objects. Chinese motifs such as carps, dragons and phoenixes have
adorned Cartier jewels, timepieces and precious accessories throughout
the early 20th century, and our speakers will share with us their insights
from the design and history perspectives.
