Be charmed by this brooch from Cartier
If you are in the mood to spend, consider the Panthère de Cartier brooch. The aristocratic panther is rendered in 18-carat white gold, with 579 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling 3.92 carats, five princess-cut diamonds totalling 0.75 carat, emeralds and onyx. The feline has been associated with Cartier since it made its first appearance in the maison’s collections in 1914. It can be fierce, playful or lovable, displaying the many facets of its personality from one collection to the next — perfect for the modern woman.

Colourful edge
Hautlence’s Vortex Gamma collection comes in technicolour. Providing a high-tech setting for the HL2.0 in-house calibre is a revolutionary composite material that is four times lighter than titanium and borrowed from the automotive and aerospace industries. The case is composed of six threedimensional sapphire crystals. The watch draws inspiration from the 1982 sci-fi film, Tron, directed by Steven Lisberger. Combining the Tron style and a graphic colour, Hautlence has come up with a colourful watch with a high-end mechanical heart.
