Devoted to Cartier's new High Jewelry and precious objects collection, this book celebrates nature's vitality, sensuality, and aesthetic force. Documents from the House's archives show that flora and fauna have always been a source of inspiration.
The representations and interpretations are numerous and complementary: figurative, ultrarealistic, stylized, suggestive, or abstract. The jeweler's imagination and virtuosity transform precious materials and stones into splendid ensembles. For this groundbreaking new collection, the designers transcend the known natural universe to visit unexplored territories: from the House's iconic panthers and crocodiles to original creations inspired, for example, by succulents, peacocks, or even imaginary chimeras. The new Cartier High Jewelry collection illustrates the relationship between contemporary art and nature.
