Sixième Sens par Cartier: High Jewelry and Precious Objects
Author François Chaille
Discover the exceptional new creations, destined for eminent clients and collectors, from one of the world’s most prestigious jewelers.
The newest collection of high jewelry and precious objects from Cartier unveiled in this book solicits our senses, surpassing them even to the sixth sense, that vertigo of emotions that touches the heart. The pieces bring us to a world where creation makes itself sensual and sensorial. The vibrance of the House of Cartier’s legendary Tutti Frutti explores the vitality of flora through the abundant accumulation of colors and gems cut in the form of flowers or tantalizing berries.
The play of textures makes the allure of touch irresistible, and the striking optical effects of masterfully cut gems entrance the gaze. Between sensations and feelings, the sixth sense also evokes intuition, the animal instinct dear to Cartier’s emblematic fauna, the panther and the graphic fur of felines.
