3 Things We Love About Cartier’s [Sur] Naturel Jewellery Collection… On one side — water, plants and animals. On the other — creations that originate from these sources but retain only their spirit, stylizing this primary in a multitude of details. Using water, flora and fauna as a starting point, Cartier’s new high jewelry collection dubbed [Sur]Naturel traces the creative path that links figuration with abstraction as part of the supernatural.
The new range of accessories reveals a nature that is more real than nature itself, freed from reality’s constraints.
As with every high jewelry collection, Cartier showcases the most precious, archaic, beautiful and mysterious stones.
The roundness of a plant form bursting with flavor, colored spots coming together to form an unreal animal coat or a series of glistening ice crystals — bringing forth the stones’ evocative bowels and blending wilderness with fantasy.
Diamonds, emeralds and sapphires are combined with opal and kunzite, coral and aquamarine, beryl and quartz.
Through the richness of its style and the refinement of its expertise, Cartier once again paves the way to a transfigured, supernatural beauty.
1/3 Top-drawer quality kunzite
The central stone of the necklace is a 71.08-carat kunzite that is in an intense pink with a hint of purple.
The gem has no inclusions visible to the naked eye, which also underscores the high quality of the stone. Credit has to be given to the jewellers for crafting a complex structure to align the surrounding stones due to the kunzite’s pavilion (the bottom portion of the gem).
