À propos de l'objet

Cartier\n\n\nThe allure of sapphires from Kashmir partly rests in their legendary origin amidst the Himalayan Mountains, a source that was exhausted more than a hundred years ago, limiting the supply of top-quality Kashmir sapphires to an extremely low number. Their unsurpassed colour is the other captivating attribute that sets Kashmir sapphires apart. Its unique blue so soft and velvety, yet rich and lustrous, glows under any kind of light, unlike sapphires from other origins which may appear purplish or greyish in comparison. These three sapphires (Lots 635 and 636) are particularly rare for they all adopted the step-cut, which is a cutting style reserved for the finest and cleanest sapphire roughs. Any sapphire from Kashmir weighing over 5 carats and free from any heat treatment is greatly sought-after by gem connoisseurs all around the world. Needless to say, if such a gemstone is set by one of the world’s most notable jewellery houses, Cartier, it only adds to the appeal of the blue gem.

condition

According to AGL, SSEF and G&uuml;belin reports, the sapphire is natural, of Kashmir, with no indications of heating and clarity enhancement. Please refer to the reports for details. In our opinion, the sapphire is of medium intense velvety blue colour, very clean to naked eyes, with only a tiny crystal inclusion under loupe check. Diamonds on side together approximately 0.85 carat, are about F to G colours, mostly VS clarity. Signed Cartier London and numbered to the shank. Vintage platinum ring mount, with signs of wear to the metal, which consistent to its age and use, otherwise in very good condition. GRADED AS MOUNTING PERMITS

artistBiography

<p>With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France. Founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making. This incredibly expensive material became the stepping-stone for Cartier to experiment in form, mechanisms and attitude. It helped men move from pocket watches to wristwatches, effectively making the watch much more functional and prominent in a man&#39;s overall wardrobe.</p><p>Cartier did not only touch on functionality. Inspired by a commissioned painting by George Barbier featuring a black panther at the feet of an elegantly bejeweled woman, Cartier began incorporating wild animals in his designs&mdash;most notably, Cartier Panth&egrave;re rings, bangle bracelets and watches. Yet it wasn&#39;t until the late 1960s that the house of Cartier debuted their iconic yellow and rose gold LOVE collection, which includes the famous bracelet that only a special screwdriver can open.&nbsp;</p>
