The magnificent greenery of Kuwait’s Al Saheed Park was the ideal backdrop for the event, where the Cactus jewels were displayed in an installation designed to evoke a sense of the desert.
Guests experienced the jewels in both day and night desert settings
Guests could see the jewels in both day and night time settings whilst exploring how Cartier creates each of these pieces, from the sketch and gemstone selection through to the craftsmanship that underpins each end creation.
First launched in 2016, the Cactus de Cartier collection veers away from the Maison’s traditional theme of delicate flowers, with their prickly designs set with emeralds, chrysoprase and carnelian alongside diamond dewdrops.

Unique pieces from the collection have also been released, including a necklace displayed at the Kuwait event composed of textured gold blooms with emerald, spinel and diamond accents.
Guillaume Alix, Cartier's Regional Managing Director for the Middle East, welcomed guests to the event alongside Ali Morad Behbehani, President of Behbehani Group.
Speaking about the collection, Guillaume described Cactus de Cartier as "powerful, sculptural pieces inspired by the primal beauty of the desert”, with Ali Morad Behbehani adding, “I couldn’t be happier to see the collection being presented this wonderfully at Al Shaheed Park and enjoyed by so many members of society in Kuwait.”
