​A rare Cartier “Tutti-Frutti” bracelet is set to lead Sotheby’s jewellery auction in Hong Kong in October, with a estimate price of $1.3 million to $1.8 million.

Sotheby’s describes the Art Deco piece as marrying “bold and vibrant” Eastern styles with “elegant and classic” Western aesthetics.

“Tutti Frutti” jewellery designs are commonly associated with Cartier, with the first piece, a necklace commissioned by Queen Alexandra, designed in 1901 by Pierre Cartier. Interestingly, the style wasn’t actually christened the “Tutti Fruitt” until 1970, even though the style become extremely popular during the 1920’s!

Back in 2014 Evelyn Lauder’s Tutti Frutti bracelet sold for $2.1 million at Sotheby’s (which was more than double its high estimate), which marked a new world auction record for a Cartier Tutti Frutti bracelet. Will this rare Cartier bracelet break the previous record of $2.1 million?
