About Hermes Mistigri Ruby Diamond Yellow Gold Vintage Brooch

The Hermès Mistigri Cat Brooch, a remarkable creation from the 1960s, is an exquisite representation of the era's luxury and artistic innovation. Crafted by the renowned Jean Bondt, this brooch stands as a testament to his extraordinary talent and the elegance that Hermès is famed for.

The brooch, crafted in the likeness of a cat's face, showcases Bondt's flair for capturing the essence of his subject with both realism and a touch of whimsy. The face of the cat is rendered with delicate precision, reflecting Bondt's attention to detail and his passion for blending naturalistic forms with artistic interpretation.

Central to the design are the cat's eyes, set with two marquise-cut rubies. These rubies, known for their deep, vivid red color, are cut in such a way that they mimic the almond shape of a cat's eyes, adding a lifelike intensity to the brooch. The choice of marquise cut enhances the stones' visual impact, drawing the viewer's attention directly to the cat's gaze.

Accentuating the face of the cat is a meticulously arranged array of round brilliant-cut diamonds. These diamonds encircle the cat's face, their sparkle and clarity providing a stunning contrast to the deep red of the rubies. The use of diamonds in this way not only adds to the brooch's luxurious appeal but also highlights the intricate contours of the cat's facial features.

Jean Bondt's role in the design of this brooch is crucial. As a designer, Bondt was celebrated for the innovative approach and ability to infuse creations with a sense of personality and character. In the Mistigri Cat Brooch, Bondt's skills are on full display, from the careful selection of gemstones to the harmonious composition of the piece.

The importance of this design lies not only in its aesthetic appeal but also in its representation of the era and its influence on the trajectory of luxury jewelry design. The Hermès Mistigri Cat Brooch, with its combination of exquisite gemstones, meticulous craftsmanship, and artistic vision, is more than just a piece of jewelry; it is a symbol of the elegance and creativity that defined the 1960s.

Hermes Backstory

When it comes to Hermes jewelry, there is no question that you will be indulging in the highest quality fine or fashion jewelry items around. Hermes has managed to effortlessly incorporate modern trends within the classic Hermes quality and style that the brand is known for. Hermes gold jewelry is especially renowned for its boldness and radiant finishes. When pursuing fine Hermes jewelry you will be undoubtedly finding the perfect piece to elevate your entire ensemble to the next level. The timelessness of Hermes pieces is this brand's hallmark and the reason why it has been synonymous with sophistication for decades.

Today, while Hermes is still known for its fine saddlery, it's also become synonymous with jewelry. From long sterling-silver necklaces to modernist rings in rose gold and more, Hermes has something for every occasion.

Thierry Hermes founded his harness shop in Paris in 1837 and quickly became a favorite among the upper-class crowd. Napoléon III, empress Eugenie, and others doted on Hermes as he wove elegant, beautifully stitched harnesses. A nod to refinement and tasteful good design caught the attention of the European beau monde, which swarmed to this master for gear that matched the status of their prized horses (which were the 19th-century equivalent of a high-end new Mercedes).

Hermes was founded on the principle of innovation, and growth has always been a characteristic of the company. In the 1920s, for example, when leatherworkers and metal smiths did what they could to provide for the family-owned company by moving from harnesses to dog collars and belts, Hermes stayed true to its values by focusing on craftsmanship. The same integrity led to the creation of a pioneering handcrafted leather handbag in 1922 that marked an international turning point for luxury. This tradition of expertise yielded an international legion of Birkin collectors today who await lengthy waiting lists with unflagging faith as they wait for their dreams to come true. When it comes to innovation and growth, Hermes never forgets its roots—as was demonstrated again with these new additions to its jewelry collection.

Hermes first piece of jewelry, the Filet de selle bracelet, debuted in 1927 and it was just the beginning. Their designs followed motifs of a horse's bridle and intricate "collier de chien" collars made of calfskin and gold - were playful yet practical, elegant yet durable. And let's not forget the pieces we picked up for ourselves, like the Chaîne d'ancre. It turned out to be more than just a ship anchor; it spawned extravagant earrings and necklaces that became fashionable all over.

Be enamored by the Hermes Chaines d'Ancre range; a luxurious collection that brings finesse to your everyday. Whether it's the renowned Kelly style, or an equestrian design, you will be sure to add a bit of classic and timeless charm to your look. Crafted in Gold, these jewelry pieces will be sure to make a lasting impression. 

Internationally-acclaimed by tasteful customers and celebrities alike, Hermès is a synonymous symbol of luxury and elegance. Established in 1837 as a harness and bridle workshop, this illustrious French brand is best known for its wide range of timelessly-styled, must-have handbags, accessories and apparel with innovative detailing. Add an unmistakable touch of luxury to any day or evening outfit with Hermès jewelry, designed with the brand’s heritage firmly in mind. Explore striking bangles and earrings crafted from the finest materials.
