Wild and Untameable - Indomptables de Cartier

Jewellery from the Indomptables collection is the result of a close collaboration between the Maison’s design studios and jewellery workshops. To create the spots and stripes, onyx is cut to measure with tremendous precision. In addition to the Maison’s signature fur setting, in which each onyx is encircled by miniscule grains of metal stretched and curved to evoke the animal’s coat, a clawless diamond setting has been added to maximise the sparkle of the stones. On the crocodile, the metal is faceted in the layout of the stones. The result: the gemstones’ radiance is enhanced, and the materials seem to blend together.
