Panthère Joaillerie

LA PANTHÈRE DE CARTIER

The Panthère is an icon. An object of desire and fascination, everything about her exudes defiance, power and freedom. She is charged with a magnetism that reveals one's strength of character.

The Panthère Head

From the ears to the jaw, the eyes to the nose, the aesthetic tension lies in the scale of the design, which is clean and precise.  The panther head is characterised by its true-to-life design that emphasises the depth of every magnetic detail.

PANTHÈRE SAVOIR-FAIRE

Design, gem mounting, paving, setting: all of these steps contribute to one objective, to reproduce the spirit of the animal. The idea is not to imitate but to pay homage, to breathe life into the animal and bestow it with a personality.
