Wondering around Fortnum and Mason’s the other day, I was spellbound by their dazzling Christmas decorations. Huge glittering baubles that would look at home on a 9-foot conifer in a stately home. That kind of tree would of course demand a fantasy gift selection to make ones eyes water.
The Cartier red leather box is possibly the most exciting gift to ever appear in a jewellery lover’s hands. It screams indulgence and the kind of heritage that makes Royalty blush. In my wildest dreams I’m presented with the kind of ring that most people keep for special occasions (every day is a special occasion in my book)
Elizabeth Taylor had the right idea with Cartier on speed dial, often re-designing some of the signature pieces in her vast collection. While Cartier is synonymous with the panther, they have many other temping treats in the vaults as this ring demonstrates…
If Tiffany is the temple of desire for women, Cartier is surely its Dalai Lama.
