With its iconic creations, Cartier has stood the test of time, and its Beautés Du Monde jewelry collection serves as an emblem of prestige, timelessness and sheer elegance. The brand’s latest offering hopes to reincarnate elements of nature into pieces of high jewelry, from emerald rings to glittering diamond earrings and sapphire necklaces. The collection explores the elegance of animals, and the transcending beauty of the ocean, bringing aquatic miracles to life in pieces that redefine the bounds of jewelry.
Inspired by the unconventional green iguana, the Iwana necklace unveils its beauty in a set abundant with diamonds and emeralds, glittering in all their glory. Glowing in vibrant shades of green, three Colombian emeralds connected by metal rings open the doors for flexibility in a high jewelry Cartier necklace, a concept the brand has put forth for the convenience of the modern woman.
Cartier’s Water Aspis Necklace, on the other hand, embodies the dreamy scene where the land meets the sea bed, a blue sanctuary where beautiful oceanic beasts reside. Sea snakes are often rendered as a terrifying myth, with few able to appreciate the beauty of the hypnotizing animal. This Cartier collection takes inspiration from the ocean’s menagerie, bringing brilliant blue sapphires and geometric cut diamonds together in a neat, emotive necklace.
Cartier’s capsule collection consists of seven radiant rings, each emphasizing a series of rare stones, depicting the depths of the sea and the heights of the sky. Blue-green emeralds bring that fantasy-like aquatic spark to life, while glistening crystals take you down the depths of the earth for an enlightening journey.
Following its age-old mission to express nature through abstract, geometric incarnations rather than imitating its innate state, Cartier has expanded its horizons, bringing obsolete elements of nature to life. The brand has been leaning towards geometric patterns for quite some time now, but the Beautés Du Monde jewelry collection may just mark the first time the brand has embodied such a wealth of meaning in its offerings.
