Cartier comes back to The Parisian Eye with a gorgeous new collection, revealed during the last Paris Couture Week: Cactus de Cartier, a bold, free-spirited collection of powerful and sculptural pieces. With this surprising collection, putting a twist on traditional sources of inspiration, Cartier reveals the secret, distinctive beauty of these fascinating, uncompromising plants: a plant that we dare not touch, but observe from afar.
The very essence of primal beauty, the cactus radiates irresistibly under Cartier’s gaze. A hardy child of the desert, resistant to freezing nights and arid days, originating from a time before time began. Opening and owering as it did at the dawn of time, it offers itself up unreservedly in the brilliance of its simplicity with this sun-drenched collection.
In this sublime, spiky collection, Cartier has overturned convention and redefined jewellery. Geometry, cut-outs, proportions: the unapproachable becomes softer and tamely reveals three unexpected faces:

A FLOWER without SPIKES…

Rebellious and resistant, tempting and haunting, ephemeral and soft owers made immortal by Cartier.
Plant shapes dotted with zesty, succulent gemstone owers in emerald, chrysoprase or carnelian.

corollas of radiant and fresh faceted lapis or diamonds.

REBELLIOUS FLOWER

Look upon these audacious beauties with a new clarity; see them through a jeweller’s eyes as they bloom in twists of gold prickling with diamonds. Unexpected curves are overturned, undulating with ripples and twirls, their movement uncon ned.

At the jeweller’s touch, the gold comes to life with twisting contours, open work and precious, pearly droplets.
