Artisanal Cat Eye

05 Sep

The  panther is the most recognizable  animal motif associated with the venerated  house of  Cartier.  A pattern based on the the cat’s spotted coat was first incorporated as a design element on a wrist watch in 1914.

Due to her elegant and independent nature ‘the Panther ‘ was also the nickname of  Jeanne Toussaint, one of the house’s legendary designers .  Under her influence the Cartier jewelers were the first to explore femininity through the metaphor of the panther.  It’s effigy continues to adorn the houses’ sumptuous  jeweler and eyewear.

The most currant appearance of the panther’s head is as a unique decor  found on a new collection of sunglasses now in stock at our stores.

Inspired by a famous ring featuring the same chiseled lines, the injection molded head decors feature 23 hand lacquered black spots and  green eyes.  The meticulously hand polished  and assembled metal frame components are each plated in a palladium layer and finished in either gold or platinum. The rectangular and cat eye shaped  frames are crafted of tortoiseshell, burgundy and black acetate.

  These expressions of the spirit of the panther are sure to charm!
