The elusive panther is thought to have originated in 1914 when artist Louis Cartier commissioned a woman wearing a necklace with a panther at her feet. He loved this alluring painting, which was used in advertisements for Cartier; the image soon became synonymous with the brand. Geo Cramer, an expert on Cartier art, explains that the animal was once seen as "the ultimate expression of femininity."
The first Panthere jewelry was created by Jeanne Toussaint, aka La Panthere herself. Toussaint received her title thanks to her bold personality and decisive style that won her the admiration of Cartier. She dared to include patterns in her jewelry design, even though this was uncommon at the time. The Panthere rings were designed to look like the head of their namesake, with onyxes for its spots and emeralds for its eyes. With such a fierce collection it's no wonder they rank among the top Cartier pieces of jewelry.
The Cartier Panthère, like the wild, untamed feline, has many different aspects to its personality and reflects these in countless jewelry creations. Whether it's an abstract pattern that enhances elegant designs or a realistic representation of the panther which brings the motif to life, once design has established itself as a visual icon in jewelry history.
