Flowers Without Spikes 退去尖刺的花朵

Cactus de Cartier is Cartier’s newest and free-spirited collection that indulges in non-spiky yet uncompromising sculptural pieces that may now be observed and touched up close. Seductive with a luscious blend of the sometimes gentle, sometimes cruel pleasure of duality, Cartier has again redefined jewellery: the geometry, cut-outs and proportions of this subliminal spiky collection revealing three unexpected designs. It is all about plant shapes dotted with zesty, succulent gemstone flowers in emerald, chrysoprase or carnelian; the generous volumes with geometric structures, gold domes illuminated by precious dewdrops, corollas of radiant and fresh faceted lapis or diamonds; and lastly the REBELLIOUS FLOWER – the audacious beauties adorned with unexpected curves, undulating with ripples and twists and unconfined movement. At the jeweller’s touch, the gold comes to life with twisting contours, open work and precious, pearly droplets.
