Spotlight on: the Cartier Panthere Collection

Beginning with the founding of the Maison de Cartier in Paris, the brand seemed destined to become the “jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers.” Louis Francois Cartier established the company in 1847. His son Alfred and grandsons Louis, Pierre and Jacques further established the company to become revered worldwide as catering to the jewelry desires of the rich and famous.

The luxury line of watches, jewelry and leather goods are presented in various named collections. Perhaps the most exotic collection is the legendary Cartier Panthere Collection. The emblematic panther design was introduced by grandson Louis in 1914 on the bezel of a lady’s watch with diamonds and onyx. His associate, Jeanne Toussaint, continued the use of the regal panther icon to create this timeless collection of jewelry.

The sleekness and boldness of the panther is featured in each magnificently designed piece in the collection. The emerald-eyed diamond encrusted panther with onyx muzzle appears reserved, yet at the same time bold and ready to leap. The iconic panther elegantly adorns rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and brooches.
