Panthère de Cartier ring, 18K yellow gold, set with 137 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling 1.15 carats. Emeralds, onyx.
The Cartier panther first leapt into the Maison's aesthetic in 1914. Whilst Louis Cartier was the first to tame the legendary creature, his associate Jeanne Toussaint went on to make magnificent use of the now-iconic feline motif. Since then, the panther, by turns predatory, playful or languid, has revealed different facets of its wild personality from collection to collection.
