If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, Cartier in the twentieth century kept some fabulous company. Pieces owned by the likes of Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, and Gloria Swanson go on view starting this Saturday in a dazzling new show at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor, celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the French jeweler’s first American boutique, which opened on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue in 1909.
