Three dog collars in the “Medusa” exhibition

The first piece dates from the 19th century and is part of the Émile Hermès collection. Made of patinated leather covered with a nickel silver name plate, it echoes touches of the second piece, displayed a few meters away. This Cartier diamond collar dates from 1906 and is meant to be worn snugly and high on the neck, in the style of Rihanna on the cover of W Magazine. The third is by Line Vautrin, an artist known for her playful jewelry and pieces, often featuring wordplay and rebuses. This gilded bronze collar is in the form of a row of dogs holding each other’s tails.
