SINGAPORE (July 30): Since 1914, Cartier has been capturing the hearts of women with its Panthere jewellery collection, which has the panther as the star. Black-and-white abstract onyx and diamond paving are used to represent the shiny coat of the big cat. Jeanne Toussaint, who was appointed director of Cartier’s luxury jewellery department in 1933, launched the panther design. In the ensuing years, the panther theme was found on jewellery, vanity cases, cigarette cases and more. In 2017, the Panthere Lovèe was launched and, this year, these beautiful pieces of jewellery are presented in different metals. Items include the Panthere Lovée bracelet and ring in pink gold and yellow gold, as well as a white gold and diamond encrusted ring.
