This blog is for curators of collections of fine jewellery and for anyone who enjoys finding unique and rare fine jewels; be it antique, estate, vintage jewellery or modern magnificent stones and designs. From a collector, investor or stylist point of view, these are the best pieces that I have found that are for sale in auctions and antique shops around the world. Ultimately it is for everyone who shares this passion.
This is a modern panther bracelet by Cartier, a minimalist version of the house's recurring theme. The panther term comes from the days when Jeanne Toussaint (1887-1978) was Cartier's director. She was nicknamed the panther due to her liking for this animal and because she had her apartment full of this motif. Jeanne also was the one that designed the famous Duchess of Windsor panther brooch and bracelet and made the spot design an icon!.
This bracelet will be auctioned by Sotheby's Hong Kong on April 6th. View lot details
