Cartier’s enduring emblem, the panther, takes centre stage in this exquisite piece perfect for the party season. The Panthère de Cartier ring, here seen in white gold with emeralds and diamonds, is truly a statement piece, with utter confidence demanded of the wearer. We love the bold graphic design and the elegant colouring of the ring, not to mention the way its size demands attention. What more could you want from a piece of jewellery?
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 jewellery collection in the 1960s and Cara Delevingne rocks the fierce emblem today. You’re in good company.
