Herworld (Singapore) - - FASHION -

ETOURDISSANT CARTIER The 169-year-old French jew­eller has named its high-jew­ellery col­lec­tion af­ter a French word for “as­ton­ish­ing”. Fea­tur­ing pieces with opal, coral, tan­zan­ite, gar­net and chryso­prase – cho­sen for their unique way of trans­form­ing light – it show­cases Cartier’s artistry and ex­per­tise in gem­stone se­lec­tion. Its in­spi­ra­tion lies in the play of light and shadow. For ex­am­ple, the white gold bracelet’s (top) sparkling bril­liant-cut di­a­monds and rock crys­tals rep­re­sent day, while the onyx rep­re­sents night. TIF­FANY & CO.
