Check out The Amazing Cartier’s Panthère De Cartier Ring!
The Cartier’s Panthère De Cartier Ring is the new thing.
First created in 1914, the Panthère Collection was the brainchild of Louis Cartier, the brand’s iconic founder, who was inspired by the watercolour Women With Panther by George Barbier, a piece he later used for advertising purposes.
The collection evokes the dangerous feline glamour of the chicest of all the big cats and incorporates everything from long necklaces to earrings.
Wallis Simpson had a panther brooch commissioned in the 1940s, Elizabeth Taylor added several pieces to her growing jewelry collection in the 1960s and Cara Delevingne rocks the fierce emblem today.
Always a symbol of wildness and grace, the panther has been the inspiration behind the Cartier’s iconic jewelry.
The sneaky predator is repeatedly re-incarnated through a wide range of rings, necklaces, bracelets and other adornments.
This amazing ring it is shaped like the head of a panther whose open mouth forms the opening for the owner’s finger. This ring is the perfect representation of the restrained ferocity of the animal.
Cartier’s Panthère De Cartier Ring is created from 18k white gold with a crisscrossing lattice design that is studded with 545 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling up to 1.63 carats.
The eyes of the cat are vivid green emeralds while an onyx forms its nose.
The description on the site practically sums all up for us.
“The Maison’s emblematic panther, first leaped into the world of Cartier jewelry in 1914. Louis Cartier was a pioneer in taming the legendary creature and his associate Jeanne Toussaint went on to make magnificent use of the icon.
The panther has since inspired a timeless and elegant collection of jewelry and timepieces that show the multiple facets of the animal that can be at times bold, regal or sensual.
