Cartier Launches Its Newest High Jewelry Collection Dubbed [Sur]Naturel
From figuration to abstraction — going beyond the real and reinventing it.
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.
