A long time ago, just over a century ago, Cartier exchanged a beautiful pearl necklace in exchange for a magnificent building on Fifth Avenue. This is the beginning of this legendary story. In 1912, Pierre Cartier, the grandson of Cartier’s founder, sought out locations in New York City for boutiques. Pierre Cartier was photographed in his office in New York in 1910. For five years, he has been searching for a building that rivals the Cartier’s glorious rue de la Paix flagship and the London boutique on New Bond Street Replica Cartier Love Ring. When he discovered the new Renaissance-style building in the heart of Manhattan, he knew he had finally found a perfect place. Cartier’s New York boutique is on Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street, and the picture was taken in 1918. Pierre proposed to the owner of the building, the famous businessman Morton F. Plant, to exchange the building with a natural pearl necklace. Prande’s wife, Mae, known as Maisie, had seen the necklace at the Cartier Salon on the fourth floor of 712 Fifth Avenue and fell in love with it. This pearl necklace, made in 2016, is a tribute to this legendary historical story. This $1 million jewellery piece is comparable to the price of this building.
In fact, according to the New York Times, the Prande mansion was worth about $925,000 in 1916, even slightly below the pearl necklace. The reason why this pearl masterpiece is so expensive is that the cultured pearls at that time were very rare and have not yet become the mainstream of the market Fake Cartier Love Ring. It took Cartier several years to collect 128 natural pearls of uniform size, and finally made this necklace that made the dreams come true. Maisie Plant is the wife of Morton Plant.
