On the prowl
The panther first leapt into Cartier historical past in 1914 — courtesy of a watch adorned with onyx and diamond “spots,” designed by Louis Cartier himself. Greater than a century later, it stays a logo of the storied jeweler, prowling by way of its most iconic items (from bracelets and brooches to cigarette instances and purses), typically cloaked with uncommon stones.
The symbol served as a badge of audacity for Cartier’s trailblazing designer Jeanne Toussaint, who created dimensional feline items that dazzled on her shoppers, a logo of their very own energy and ferocity. Devotees have included everybody from Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson within the Nineteen Forties to Timothée Chalamet, who dangled a glimmering Panthère de Cartier diamond-and-emerald pendant from his naked chest at this 12 months’s Oscars.
The gathering’s newest providing — a shocking golden necklace studded with diamonds and inexperienced tsavorite garnets for eyes — proves that the legend of Cartier’s iconic panther roars on.
