Escape into a fantasy land where necklaces laden in diamonds and gemstones depict an altered yet hyper-majestic natural world

Nature and its magnificent creatures have always been a source of inspiration for Cartier, but for the maison’s latest high jewellery offering, [Sur]naturel, the natural world is depicted through an abstract lens that tilts into a hallucinogenic fantasy. Far removed from the romanticism expected from flora and fauna, the collection reveals supernatural interpretations of water, wildlife and tropical blooms, reimagined in kaleidoscopic stones.

Adorning the neck of model Mariacarla Boscono, the Sinopé necklace uses diamonds and scalloped strips of lapis lazuli to mirror the gentle ripple of waves, sat beautifully above five Madagascan sapphires. While the Sinopé is an ode to tranquility, the Gharial necklace symbolises the fierce and majestic spiritof Cartier’s menagerie. Drawing distant inspiration from the crocodile, diamonds and emeralds are placed in disjointed patterns to resemble thetexture and depth of the reptile’s skin, resulting in a dazzling effect. Offering a much-needed escape, [Sur]naturel is a hyper-realised spin on high jewellery.
