EIGHT NECKLACES IN ONE
This creation perpetuates the great Cartier tradition of transformable jewellery, revealing eight main ways of wearing the necklace and two variations for the pendant earrings.
Thus, the inner ruby part is transformed into a dog collar; tassels and clusters of emeralds surrounding the central motif can be removed, offering a shorter version of the adornment; the central cluster is worn as a pendant on a chain.
WHO WORE IT?
During the 1920s, a passion for this unique jewellery spread across the entire world. It enchanted a sophisticated clientele who appreciated fashion and the arts. They included Ms Cole Porter, Lady Mountbatten and Daisy Fellowes, significant figures in high society and among the world’s most elegant individuals.
