Story

The label “Tutti Frutti" in regards to jewels refers to a style of jewelry designed during early 20th century by the House of Cartier. Influenced by the colorful jewelry from India, Pierre Cartier was inspired to incorporate gemstones carved into floral and botanical forms into his already innovative pieces. An interesting fact is that almost a century after its design initiation, this style was given the appellation of “tutti frutti” in the 1970s. Also referred to as “fruit salad”, this design has remained a Cartier signature item.

Crafted in sterling silver, this form of fruit salad presents as a flower basket decorated with turquoise enamel and cross hatching of yellow enamel. The curved handle and basket trim are set with clear white pastes. A trio of molded glass flowers – golden yellow, cherry red and blue-grey – and silver leaves dotted with white pastes fill the colorful basket with its bounty. Whimsical and cheery, the three-dimensional brooch will brighten any day.

Date: Circa 1925.
