Cartier's now iconic panther designs came about by an early 1900s painting of a woman and a panther commissioned by Louis Cartier himself. He was so enamored with the image of the panther, and the elegance and power it conveyed, that it became a symbol for the luxury jewelry house, produced first in a bracelet watch set with diamonds and onyx.
Though the Panthere de Cartier collection was discontinued in the early 2000s and only recently reinstated, the breathtaking beauty of the timeless panther pieces is still alive and well. No more so is this evident than in our rare 18K Yellow Gold and Diamond Cartier Panthere Bracelet Watch. This eye catching vintage piece is one of the brand's most coveted models with its emerald eyed panther set in pavé diamonds gracefully draped around the circular case. A minimal gold watch face adds to the overall sense of opulence which complements the watch's bracelet that is also completely covered in pavé set diamonds.
