On Our Radar: Cartier at San Francisco's Legion of Honor

Cartier is celebrating 100 years in America with a drool-inducing retrospective of the house's most famous jewels at San Francisco's Legion of Honor. Among the jewels on display in the Cartier in America exhibit are Wallis Simpson's Flamingo brooch, made of diamonds, emeralds, rubies and citrines, given to her by the Duke of Windsor, the "Tutti Frutti" diamond, emerald, ruby and sapphire necklace once owned by Daisy Fellowes, the Singer sewing heiress, and the bracelets worn by Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard.

The exhibit runs through April 18, 2010. There are no current plans to show it again, so catch it while you can!

Thinking about going? Check out the Taj Hotel's Campton Place Jewels and the Crown package. It includes two nights at the hotel, two VIP tickets to the Cartier in America show and daily breakfast starting at $498.
