Cartier amplifies the elements of nature in a celebration of its beauty in the latest high-jewellery collection; Beaute du Monde.
Iwana Emerald Necklace
The latest high jewellery collection from Cartier is an exquisite kaleidoscope of shapes, colours and luxurious materials. This collection perfectly captures the beauty of nature, drawing inspiration from landscapes and habitats around the world. The collection transports us to flower fields, coral reefs and grassy hillsides through the intricate designs and colourful gemstones. Within this high-jewellery collection, you’ll find six necklaces and seven rings, plus an additional jewellery collection set with necklaces, earrings, rings and brooches. We have selected five favourites from the high-jewellery pieces to take a closer look at.
As a beaded jewel representing an aquatic water lily flower, this necklace immediately draws your eyes to the centre where a 10.61-carat rubellite sits on your décolletage. It is surrounded by diamond petals that unfold, amplifying the volume and transporting you to blossoming life on magical ponds around the Earth.
Cartier has transported us to the coral reefs in this piece of oceanic jewellery. It has been inspired by the marine ecosystems and living organisms below the oceans. The emerald green and the coral orange perfectly represent the flora and fauna in the form of ribbed beads that wind down from the neck and into the pendant.
This next piece is a hypnotic snake that glides along the skin with glistening blue gems next to triangle diamonds, it reflects one of the most majestic animals in nature beautifully. Five spectacular 43.49 carat Ceylon sapphire cabochons are the stars of the show in a deep intense blue.
A cocktail ring that has been inspired by a mythological creature, the sea dragon. As the ruby gemstones and diamonds come together in a unique swirled pattern, it represents an ammonite fossil; an asteroid; a geological crystallisation; a Chinese puzzle.
This piece combines platinum, tourmaline, emeralds, onyx and diamonds, designed as if it were a sculpture. Taking on the colours of land, sea and sky, it displays the colours of our planet on a miniature scale.
