Artistic crafts

By integrating a glyptics workshop into its High Jewellery workshops and creating the Maison des Métiers d'Art in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Cartier is demonstrating its commitment to preserving, transmitting and developing these age-old, endangered and timelessly precious techniques.


Glyptics is the art of engraving and sculpting hard, precious or fine stones. Cartier is one of the few great jewellers who undertake this Métier d’Art in-house. Integrated into the Maison in 2010, the workshop is now led by Émilie Marques, one of Maître d'Art Philippe Nicolas’ students, who now passes on her expertise to her apprentices.
