Wondrous Voyage: An Enchanting New Cartier Jewellery Collection
Curiosity about the world and passion for its diverse wonders have long driven the pioneering creativity of Cartier jewellery collections. The Le Voyage Recommence high jewellery line marks a new horizon in this fascinating journey as a brilliant celebration of the world’s cultures, landscapes, and civilizations—and all they have to offer.
“We explore so many territories to push the boundaries of creation and discover new horizons,” says Jacqueline Karachi, director of High Jewellery Creation.
The mesmerizing collection opens with the Dohara, a colorful necklace that transports us to the wonder of India. Paying homage to traditional Mughal jewellery, the necklace took over a year to create through the collaborative efforts of six different professions in the high jewellery workshops.
Diamonds, white gold, and precisely sculpted rock crystal feature on one side, recalling India’s popular boteh motif, while red, blue, and green lacquer are a nod to classic Cartier shades.
From there, it’s off to the distant corners of Southeast Asia, where a local myth has been translated into the stunning Bailong brooch. A fiery dragon, one of Cartier’s favoured symbols, clutches a 30.11-carat tourmaline and a yellow diamond, with another pear-cut yellow diamond gleaming in its eye.
