In 1949, Cartier presented Wallis Simpson, a.k.a. the Duchess of Windsor, with a specially designed piece of jewelry whose wild spirit matched her own: a white-gold-and-platinum panther brooch, encrusted in diamonds and mounted on a 152.35-carat Kashmir sapphire cabochon. This spectacular accessory, inspired by Africa’s sleek felines, was worn by the duchess as she and her husband (the man who wouldn’t be king) pranced around the capitals of Europe.
The Cartier Panther ring was designed by Louis Cartier's fellow jeweler Jeanne Toussaint, who was nicknamed the Panther, but rumor has it that he was inspired by Marchesa Luisa Casatti pet - panther.
Today, Cartier panther is today worshiped fashion accessory, and it's on my lust list! :)
Godine 1949, Cartier je prezentovao Vojvotkinji od Windsora ovaj specijalan komad nakita koji odrazava njen duh, bros u obliku panthera u kombinaciji belog zlata i platine sa dijamantima. Ovaj komad je vojvotiknja rado nosila na svim dogadjajima i od tada je pravi hit!
Carier Panther prsten je dizajnirao prijatelj od Louisa Cartiera, Jeanne Toussaint koji je kasnije dobio nadimak panter. Suska se da je kao inspiraciju za ovaj komad nakita njemu posluzio Panter, ljubimac Markize Luise Casati.
