Prepare to be wowed by these fine-jewellery collections, which combine amazing gems and top-notch craftsmanship in truly stunning ways!
The 169-year-old French jeweller has named its high-jewellery collection after a French word for “astonishing”. Featuring pieces with opal, coral, tanzanite, garnet and chrysoprase – chosen for their unique way of transforming light – it showcases Cartier’s artistry and expertise in gemstone selection. Its inspiration lies in the play of light and shadow. For example, the white gold bracelet’s (top) sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds and rock crystals represent day, while the onyx represents night.
