Luxury jewellers often look to the natural world for inspiration in their designs, but with its new [Sur]Naturel collection Cartier takes the idea one step further, infusing high jewellery pieces with a supernatural, reality-defying twist. Figurative motifs are elevated with abstracted aesthetics to create standout creations with a statement-making appeal.
[Sur]Naturel: The new high jewellery range from Cartier
24th August 2020
Bold and striking, the supernatural nature-inspired collection from the luxury French jeweller combines figurative concepts with abstract design
Sparkling diamonds, sapphires and emeralds create motifs relating to animals, plants and water, juxtaposed with semi-precious combinations such as beryl and quartz, opal and kunzite, and aquamarine and coral to form intriguing combinations of colour and depth.
Key pieces include the Hemis necklace, modelled after panther fur, and the snake-inspired Opheis necklace [pictured at top], while the Sinopé ring captures the organic shape of water. However, our top pick has to be the new hybrid Panthère Tropicale wristwatch, which artfully combines animalistic motifs with organic ones.
