The Panthère de Cartier is undoubtedly one of the most emblematic icons in the trove of Cartier. First appeared in an Art Deco-style advertisement named Dame à la Panthère in 1914, it wasn’t until 1948 that break of dawn occured when Jeanne Toussaint, the then director of luxury jewellery department dreamed up the first La Panthère jewel, a gold and enamel panther brooch set with a cabochon emerald, for Duchess of Windsor Wallace Simpson. The big cat with tsavorite garnet-encrusted eyes has since then become the protagonist in the countless imaginations of Cartier creative directors, as well as in the appearances of A-listers the likes of Timothee Chalamet at Oscars, Deepika Padukone at Cannes and of course the Cartier global ambassador Jisoo.
