The important point in Cartier’s savoir-faire is the hyphen: the union of the idea and its realisation, of creators and artisans. An incontrovertible demonstration of three Surnaturel creations, the new High Jewellery collection.
In the Tillandsia necklace, transparency becomes art: two exceptional beryls appear to float on a diamond lattice. The designer and jeweller join forces to create effects of depth, which continue into the crystal of the rutilated quartz.
The Panthère Tropicale wristwatch is a jigsaw of highly technical nature involving jewellers, gem-cutters and gem-setters: choosing the coral and carving miniscule plaques, gadrooning yellow gold, paving grain-set panther onto white gold.
Finally, the Kunzite necklace, the art of the gem-cutter is dedicated to baroque-shaped opals whose light is revealed by the cut and which contrast with a large kunzite. To harmonise volume, shape and material – a transformation carried out by the jeweller and gem-setter who unify the whole thanks to the particular attention given to shagreen setting.
