Rare Cartier jewels displayed in Beverly Hills


Cartier scion Francesca Cartier Brickell put a priceless set of jewels on display at an event in Beverly Hills this week — requiring a breathtaking security operation.

We’re told five former special ops guys and ten armed guards worked with local police for a week before the event at a private home in the chic neighborhood to monitor any unusual activity in a five-mile area around the venue.

Apparently, the team used a “geo-fence” to secure the area.

We’re told there was only an hour window to view the jewels — one of which has only ever been displayed at the Louvre in Abu Dhabi — at the Power Beauty Living party, and that Cartier Brickell herself was escorted to and from the event by armed guards.

It’s not clear what jewels exactly were on display at the $28 million pad and — perhaps for obvious reasons — no photographs of the exhibit were posted online.

Cartier Brickell is the great-great-great granddaughter founded of Louis-François Cartier who founded the company in Paris in 1847.

She’s also the author of the 2021 book, “The Cartiers: The Untold Story of the Family Behind the Jewelry Empire.”

The event launched the “Pass The Baton Campaign” for global women empowerment. It also honored Olympic medalists Samantha Bosco and Colleen Quigley.

The event was hosted by beauty influencer Shalini Vadhera, founder of Beauty Power Living, and her TV personality husband, former “Access Hollywood” host Tony Potts.
