The new High Jewellery collection by Cartier

A meeting of materials, a collision of contrasts: a marriage of precious stones with ornamental hard stones, giving birth to spectacular creations. A first in High Jewellery, this stylistic feature, steeped in character, balances technique with creative flair continually updated by Cartier since the early 20th century.

 

Original forms, landscaped materials, the stones of the new Cartier collection shake up the conventions of High Jewellery. Gems whose radical beauty causes wonder and whose mysteries intrigue us. Enigmatic stones that bear witness to the origins of the world, transporting us beyond time.

 

Freeing High Jewellery from precious metal constraints to reveal the beauty of the stones themselves. Creating light structures so that the gems may caress the skin. An art of subtraction that relies on the expertise of craftsmanship: each element is designed for, and adapts to, the body. Movement and fluidity are prerequisites in every Cartier creation.

 

In this collection, diamonds allow rutilated quartz to sparkle, sapphires glow alongside matrix opals, emeralds gleam next to rock crystal... Side by side the gems converse in a dialogue that flits between opacity and transparency, the mineral and the precious, pure colours and shimmering nuances, earth and light.
