À propos de l'objet

Cartier\n\n\nGemstones have been cut into cabochons for as long as they were known to men. Impressive dome-shaped gemstones on many of the world’s crown jewels bear testimony to this fact. Through advancement in technology cutters are now able to produce intricate facetted gems. High quality roughs, often less included and less vulnerable to the rigors of cutting and polishing, are almost always facetted. A fine cabochon of significant weight, as a result, is rarer than ever. This very emerald possesses excellent clarity that easily qualifies it for faceting, this gem adopts the uncommon sugarloaf cutting, which is a modification of the classic cabochon. It is one of the rare gems that demonstrate a candy-like texture, gleaming with lush green colour from within the pyramidal form. As old as the art of fashioning is the clarity enhancement of emeralds through oiling. This is considered a common and acceptable practice in the trade. This sugarloaf emerald only underwent minor treatment with natural oil, which provides the gem extra structural stability on the cutting wheel and polishing machine.

condition

According to both AGL and G&uuml;belin reports, the sugarloaf emerald is natural, of Colombia origin, with indications of minor (traditional) clarity enhancement. Please refer to the reports for details. In our opinion, the emerald is of medium strong greenish blue colour, eye clean with charming "candy-like" face-up appearance. Under loupe check, there are natural inclusions with a few surface fissures and tiny chips, not noticeable to naked eyes in normal lighting. Two tapered diamonds on side together weighing approximately 0.70 carat, are about F to G colours, VS clarity. Mount signed <em>Cartier</em>. Vintage platinum ring mount with signs of normal wear. Overall condition and make good. 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>
