A High Jewellery creativity with four exceptional pieces that concentrate all the very best of Cartier savoir-faire
Cartier High Jewellery deploys all the virtuosity of its savoir-faire around these four unique watches, ranging between abstract design, secret watch models and menagerie motifs revisited.
Precious hours are here displayed amid a dazzling array of exceptional stones – sapphires, emeralds and diamonds.
Between cuffs, bangles or romantic toi et moi bracelets, these watches find their inspiration close to Cartier’s heart, transfiguring each watch into an exceptional jewel. From menagerie to tutti frutti to minimalist design, they offer a state-of-the-art synthesis of the Cartier style.
Through these creations, the master jewellery craftsmen find their artistic voice. The gem cutter carves the obsidian stone with its coloured gradations. The jeweller sculpts a pouncing panther out of a bracelet made of black jade. The gem setter traces the cobra’s curving form in diamonds, or carefully lays out bright expanses of gems to form an ultra-realistic panther.
By contrast, one watch favours abstract forms and simplicity of outline, integrating the squareness of its dial into a larger geometrical pattern: a creation marked by the juxtaposition of its transparent, gem-set dial and the glitter of its 19.20-carat cushion-cut yellow sapphire.
