CARTIER REKINDLES THE MAISON’S ALL-TIME FAVORITE, GRACEFUL PREDATOR
In smooth yellow or pink gold with onyx and tsavorite garnets, or with white diamond pavé, onyx and emerald as the magnificent beast’s nose and eyes, these new panther bracelets by Cartier draw on the history of the renowned French jewelry and watch house’s legendary emblem.
Debuting back in 1914 in the form of a wristwatch, the panther became an enduring symbol in the bestiary of the Maison, and has not stopped evolving ever since.
“La Panthère” was the nickname of Parisian style icon Jeanne Toussaint, lover and muse to Louis Cartier and Artistic Director of High Jewelry at the Maison from 1933 to 1970. At that time, a woman holding such a high position was mind-blowing. Known for her ferocious and opinionated temperament, intelligence, extreme femininity and elegance, Jeanne Toussaint was the human embodiment of the strong-willed, svelte animal.
The Cartier panther of today acquires the shape of a curved, flexible gold bangle, remarkable for its clean and supple design, where pure, flowing shapes find perfect balance with modern luxury.
A playful and dangerous animal to elegantly purr on your wrist.
