Continuing with its boundless quest for beauty, Cartier has introduced a quartet of enchanting new high-jewellery necklaces…
SAMA NECKLACE Created with extremely precise Computer Aided Design (CAD), the Sama necklace animates the inanimate, allowing its wearer to free themselves from everything static. This Cartier creation’s strong visual impact unfolds around a 19.27-carat Ceylon sapphire, producing a striking sensation of motion. Inspired by the dresses of the whirling dervishes, this piece forms a swirling series of curves and, indeed, counter-curves. The voluminous design is punctuated by arabesques on which light dances.
CLAUSTRA NECKLACE The Claustra necklace showcases a set of shield diamonds, including a remarkable 4.02-carat diamond, at the centre of a complex structure made up of broken lines. In this piece, the effects of perspective and interplays of relief are multiplied throughout, while light vibrates and circulates. Onyx alternates with openwork and diamonds in a constantly reinvented contrast that is emblematic of Cartier. A transformable piece, the Claustra necklace can be separated in two.
PANTHÈRE GIVRÉE NECKLACE With the Panthère Givrée necklace, stylisation interacts with figuration. The feline’s head features almond-shaped emerald eyes and pointed ears, while its coat is pixelated into a cloud of geometric shapes and spotted with onyx. A masterpiece of high-jewellery design, this item features a set of three aquamarines of 20.33 carats, giving this necklace a powerful chromatic intensity. Fine touches of lapis lazuli punctuate the composition and play on the contrast.
GIRIH NECKLACE A necklace that invites its wearer on a journey, this piece lends itself to the temptation of travel. The Girih necklace is an interplay of lines, motifs and symmetry. It features emeralds and turquoises. Keeping with Cartier’s tradition of transformable pieces, the central pendant can be detached and worn as a brooch.
