Last night, Cartier hosted a VIP evening, with the who's who of the region in attendance, including the ever-glamorous HRH Princess Haya bint al Hussein, at the newly opened Dubai Opera to celebrate the brand’s enduring relationship with the art world, and to watch legendary opera singer Jose Carerra’s first performance on his last world tour. 

The luxury jewellery makers showcased a stunning 18-piece collection from its archives, featuring 10 tiarias and eight necklaces that have been by royalty and global icons, like Elizabeth Taylor, the world over since 1973. Up until last night, the collection had only been shown in some of the world’s most famous museums, adding a special element to the evening’s festivities.

In addition to the jawdropping jewellery display, Cartier also lit up the legendary Burj Khalifa to mark the special occasion. Cyrille Vigneron, the CEO of Cartier International, said, “Cartier remains deeply committed to supporting artistic creation and ensuring its global influence.”
