In 2002, Cartier founded its private Jewelry-Making Institute with the vision of passing on exceptional skills to future generations and developing innovative methods and techniques. Since 2007, a high-level specialist training program in jewelry-making crafts has been aimed at graduates and young apprentices that have completed the French BMA or CAP vocational diplomas. Courses are taught by specialists active in their respective fields. The program offers optimal conditions for training and the opportunity to join a high-level team in the atelier.
Since July 2014, the Institute is used only to train our specialists from in-house ateliers seeking to build on their skills in jewelry-making, high-end gem-setting and jewelry finishing. These courses equip students with the expertise required to work on exceptional pieces.
