Cartier's Jewellery Institute will welcome the general public for the second consecutive year during European Heritage Days on September 16th and 17th, 2023. Nearly 200 visitors will have the opportunity to explore the rich heritage of the Maison Cartier. During this visit, participants will move through the three floors of the Institute to discover techniques ranging from gem setting to polishing, including more confidential techniques such as glyptics (the art of engraving on precious stones). This occasion will also give younger individuals the chance to interact with artisans. The highlight will be an introduction to jewelry techniques, where visitors will participate in the creation of an iconic piece: a panther, symbol of the Cartier House.
Established in 2002, the Cartier Jewellery Institute is dedicated to continuous training and promoting the jewelry profession. It aims to ensure the longevity and development of these professions through a tailored training program. Nestled in an 18th-century private mansion in the 9th arrondissement, the Institute promotes the professional development of artisans through continuous training covering various trades, from pearl threading to wax carving. The cross-disciplinary training programs offered provide a comprehensive immersion into the subtleties of jewelry making.
Moreover, the Institute maintains partnerships with specialized schools, including the High School of Jewelry, an active partner with the house for over 150 years. One of the future objectives is to increase the number of apprentices and hire most of them upon completion of their training in response to growing demand in the sector. The introduction of the Digital Bachelor in Jewelry, in collaboration with the High School of Jewelry, reflects Cartier's commitment to combining tradition and technology while ensuring that the art of jewelry remains at the forefront of innovation.
