Cartier panthers at Artcurial

In its annual Monaco sale, Artcurial includes around twenty Cartier panthers. “They all come from a personal collection of 100 pieces of jewelry that a great jewelry lover gave as a present to his wife,” says Julie Valade, director of the jewelry departement. Cartier has been inspired by panthers since 1914 and has never stopped creating new versions. The panthers on sale dating from 1990 to 2010 take various forms: all-gold ring alongside one entirely set with diamonds, a pendant spotted with enamel or black onyx, flat or in 3D, as well as a necklace, a brooch, etc. Not to mention a spotted watch that echoes the original 1914 model. My favorite piece : the roaring stylized and faceted panther into which you slip your finger.
