Cartier Panther gold and lapis bead ‘Bubble’ necklace
The panther is a perennial favourite at Cartier, and the maison is once again paying homage to its iconic big cat with a playful new collection of jewels. The Panthere ‘Bubble’ necklace, part of the new ‘Bubble’ colection, sees the spotted feline reclined inside a lapis lazuli bead, hand-carved until hollow by Cartier’s master craftsmen. The panther, beautifully recreated in yellow gold, with black lacquer markings, peers out with its bright tsavorite garnet eyes, surrounded by a halo of diamonds. The longer length of the chain means the pendant sits just above the breastbone – the fashionable way to show your Cartier spots.
