Much to my husband’s dismay, jewelry is something of an obsession with me. He really shouldn’t complain, because gift giving is always easy! Of course, as much as I adore my costume pieces for every day, I also appreciate the “real” pieces he gives me for their timeless appeal. My diamond tennis bracelet, simple diamond solitaire pendant, and pearl stud earrings are all destined to become heirlooms for my daughters someday.
Although my personal classics are reasonably affordable, I can’t help admiring (and sighing over, if I am being honest) some of the more elaborate pieces from Harry Winston, Bulgari and of course, Cartier. When I spy advertisements for enormous collars laden with precious rubies, chandelier earrings dripping with emeralds, or an intricate brooch encrusted with sapphires, well… my heart beats a little faster!
The pave diamond bangle panther bracelet from Cartier (pictured) is a perfect example! The PANTHÈRE DE CARTIER BRACELET at Cartier is platinum and pave diamond, with an onyx nose, onyx spots, and pear-cut emerald eyes. Oh my!
According to the folks at Cartier, “The Maison’s emblematic panther first leaped into the world of Cartier jewelry in 1914. Louis Cartier was a pioneer in taming the legendary creature and his associate Jeanne Toussaint went on to make magnificent use of the icon. The panther has since inspired a timeless and elegant collection of jewelry and timepieces that show the multiple facets of the animal that can be at times bold, regal or sensual.”
In case you are wondering, prices for the bracelet – which has several variations – start at about $9000 and go upwards (quickly!). Still… a girl’s gotta dream!
