"A truly wild animal, the Panther is more than a mere symbol for Cartier. It is a timeless icon that is both predatory and elegant, restrained yet always ready to pounce."

Silently stalking its way through Cartier iconography for a century, the panther is the proud leader of the pack of precious animals that make up the famous Cartier menagerie. No other creature or jewelis quite so indissolubly and emotively connected to outstanding 20th-century women of style, to ideals of modern femininity, and has become Cartier’s most iconic motif for a century. A symbol of power, seduction, and triumph since ancient times, the image of the panther never fails to arouse fantasies and dreams.

Featuring texts by art historian Bérénice Geoffroy-Schneiter, jewelry historian Vivienne Becker, jewelry expert Joanna Hardy, and fashion editor André Leon Talley, Cartier Panthère chronicles the panther in art history, the evolution of Cartier panther jewels, the techniques involved in creating a Cartier panther jewel, the in uence of the panther in fashion, design, and popular culture, and includes a chronology of 100 years of Cartier panther jewels.

With Assouline she has published many books, including Ethnic Style(2001), the two-volume Primal Arts (2005–06), and most recently Van Cleef & Arpels (2014).

She organized and wrote the catalog for the first major exhibition of the jewelry of René Lalique, and curated Jewels of Fantasy, a traveling exhibition of 20th century costume jewelry. Becker’s previous books for Assouline include The Impossible Collection of Jewelry(2012), and Sevan Biçakçi (2014).

CREATION OF A CARTIER PANTHER. Joanna Hardy began her career as a goldsmith before working at De Beers as a rough diamond appraiser, and at Sotheby’s in Bond Street as senior jewelry specialist and auctioneer. Hardy established the Jewellery School of Excellence program, lecturing and conducting master classes worldwide, she has published Collect Contemporary: Jewelry and Emerald: Twenty-One Centuries of Jewelled Opulence and Power with Thames and Hudson, and is a regular contributor to The Telegraph’s Luxury magazine and The Wall Street Journal.
