In 2002, Cartier founded its private Jewellery-Making Institute with a view to passing on exceptional skills to future generations and developing innovative methods and techniques. Since 2007, a high-level specialist training programme in jewellery-making crafts has been aimed at school leavers and young apprentices that have completed the French BMA or CAP vocational diplomas. Courses are taught by specialists active in their fields. The programme 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 jewellery-making, high-end gem-setting and jewellery finishing. These courses equip students with the expertise required to work on exceptional pieces.
