Cartier stomacher, circa 1909; Image Christie's. Cartier was a trend setter not a style follower. In 1898-1899 Louis Cartier decided to set up an in-house design studio. Cartier did not create jewels in the Art Nouveau style. During this period they were known for the most elegant platinum and diamond jewels in the neo-classical and Louis XVI-revival styles, or as it is now referred to, the garland style.

Cartier stomacher~A stomacher is a decorated triangular panel that fills in the front opening of a woman's gown or bodice. The stomacher may be boned, as part of a corset, or may cover the triangular front of a corset. If simply decorative, the stomacher lies over the triangular front panel of the stays, being either stitched or pinned into place, or held in place by the lacings of the gown's bodice. A stomacher may also be a piece or set of jewellery to ornament a stomacher or bodice.
