Tutti Frutti

These extremely imaginative jewels were designed with movement and depth, adorned with brilliant and colorful gemstones. The stones ran the gamut from cabochons to faceted and fancifully carved. Cartier popularized this jewelry style in the 1920's after an inspirational trip to India where the gemstones were carved.
