Sothebys thrilled to announce that they will offer one of Cartier’s most iconic designs, a Gem-Set, Diamond and Enamel ‘Tutti Frutti’ Bracelet, in a dedicated online auction open for bidding on sothebys.com from 24 – 28 April 2020.
Created almost a century ago, tutti frutti pieces by Cartier are joyous celebrations of texture, form and color that are coveted today as icons of the Art Deco era. The artful arrangement of carved colored stones and diamonds, together with the precise application of black enamel, uniquely illustrate the marriage between Eastern and Western influences on Art Deco jewelry design. The present example is distinguished by the vibrancy of its gemstones, predominated by rubies, and by the lines of black enamel, applied to just one side, in an echo of the organic asymmetry of the carved gems. The bracelet returns to a more traditional Art Deco aesthetic with its pavé-set diamond clasp, highlighted by onyx triangles and chevron-shaped closures.
