The Ryu Necklace
Structure, material, pattern: the dragon skin inspires Cartier. For this necklace, 80 yellow diamonds weighing approximately 79 carats constitute the scales of this fantastic reptile that marks the link between Earth and Heaven. Thanks to octahedral gems, whose rare cut is rarely used in jewellery, the faceting work multiplies and sets the sparkle between the stones ablaze. These intense, solar diamonds are placed in the heart of hexagonal patterns of white gold paved with diamonds which together form a geometric mesh. They illustrate Cartier’s passion for stones of character with singular shapes.
