The setting is just a few steps away of the Tsars' treasure.In the period between May 25 and August 25, the Moscow's Kremlin museum houses the exhibition called "Cartier - Innovations through the 20th century." The innovation spirit of the popular watch and jewelry brand is presented through 165 genuine pieces and 25 original drawings.It is important to note that till now not one jewelry brand was allowed to present itself in Moscow's highly protected place. Thus Cartier is the first brand that was granted the honor to open its exposition in Russia's most famous ancient tsar citadel, which currently serves as a residence of the Russian government.This unprecedented event represents the long friendship that bound Cartier and Russia since 1860, when the jeweler from the Rue de la Paix supplied its exclusive products to Russian princes in Paris.
