The Cartier Panthère Collection is one of the most recognizable in the jewelry world.
How did Louis Cartier decide to use the panther in his jewelry design?
In the early 20th Century, an artist by the name of Fernand Khnopff, painted an image of a lady panther.
The image began a symbolism of a panther as feminine and sensual, and soon celebrities of the time asked the famous designer Elise De Wolfe to decorate their home using panther patterns.
It was then that Louis Cartier and the Maison designed his first jewelry piece (a wristwatch) with a panther skin motif. It was 1914.
Since then, the Maison has made a symbol of the panther, that represents the powerful and sensuality of women.
In the numerous designs they have created throughout the years and to the present, the Panthère Collection is not only iconic, but a representation of all the inner strength and beauty of women.
Excellent: Nothing needs to be done to the piece. It looks as brand new.
Very Good: The piece may show light sings of wear due to be previously used. All of its components are in perfect conditions. No deep scuffs or scratches are shown. Might need a light buff to make it look as brand new.
Good: Piece shows signs of wear but all of its components are in place. Might show some scratches (usually photographed). Will need to be re-polished to look and feel new.
Fair: Pieces shows parts with excessive wear due to previous usage and age. Might have some of its components with chips or nicks, scratches and loss of rhodium. Generally it can be used like this but it would be recommended to treat it with care. Usually this pieces are 80 - 100 years old!!
Poor: Though we try no to put this kind of items in the market a poor classification for a piece means missing or broken components. it will need to be repaired or reconditioned in order to use it. Can be useful as a part of a new project or converted into a different piece. These pieces are sold as is.
