A powerhouse in the world of haute joaillerie, Cartier has long been the go-to brand for celebrities and royalty alike. Its star-studded rolodex includes screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, Monaco princess Grace Kelly and artist Andy Warhol; and its recently reopened flagship mansion-store in New York even features rooms inspired by, and named after, these famous clients.
Hollywood glitz and glamour aside, Cartier is still best known for its expertise and legacy in beautiful high jewellery. And its enchanting new Cartier Magicien collection, which is inspired by nature and light, is testament to that. Spanning rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings, the range is bedecked with glittering gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds, beryls, rubellites and sapphires, and — as its name suggests — leaves viewers quite spellbound.
A highlight design is the Magie Blanche platinum necklace, which features a riveting 20.09-carat light brown diamond framed by strings of natural pearls and briolette- and brilliant-cut diamonds. Adding to its splendour is an eye-catching 5.25-carat light brown rose-cut diamond mounted on its second tier.
Paired with a stylish outfit, the necklace makes a dazzling statement piece and conversation-starter. It is also versatile: The bottom row can be detached and worn on its own as a simple, elegant accessory, and its massive brown diamond can be removed.
