A symbol of both wildness and grace, the panther has been the inspiration behind some truly iconic jewelry for luxury brand Cartier. The sleek predator is repeatedly re-incarnated through a wide range of rings, necklaces, bracelets and other adornments. A diamond studded version of the famous Panthère de Cartier ring has now caught our eye.
Shaped like the head of a panther whose open mouth forms the opening for the wearer’s finger, this ring is a perfect representation of the restrained ferocity of the animal. This one is created from 18k white gold with a crisscrossing lattice design that is studded with 545 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling up to 1.63 carats. The fierce feline’s eyes are vivid green emeralds while an onyx forms its nose.
Priced at a steep $78,500, this ring is as fierce as it is fabulous! It’s also available in a yellow gold avatar, sans diamonds.
