Chicago & Cartier

- The Boutique Opened in 1984 - (and underwent its first renovation in 2005)

- The building’s architecture illustrates the sophisticated urban ambience of North Michigan Avenue, as it was originally planned and developed in the 1920s. The modern French-style classical design, which is reminiscent of continental-style Parisian elegance, is one of the last standing links to the street’s formative years, a crown jewel among the Michigan Avenue. - The Cartier boutique takes place in the Woman’s Athletic Club building of Chicago: a private club for women established in 1898. The WAC was the first athletic club for women in America. “Created by ladies, for ladies”. The Clubhouse was awarded Landmark status in 1991 . - In their centennial book the WAC is mentioning Cartier “ it was a glorious match when Cartier, the legendary French jeweler, leased the anchor store in 1984 , opening with the splash at the height of the Christmas shopping season”. - With an unique and rich history, the WAC has always been identified with graciousness and elegance – as Cartier. The Chicago’s women of fashion, enjoyed having their own clubhouse on the city’s new “Champs Elysee” (Michigan Avenue, Magnificent Mile).

- In 1969 , people from all over the world visited the New York and - Chicago boutiques, where the Taylor-Burton diamond could - be found on display. This stunning diamond weighed 69.42 carats - and was purchased by Richard Burton; Elizabeth Taylors’ husband.
