Cartier Casts Nature and Culture Into ‘Le Voyage Recommencé Chapter II’ High Jewelry Collection

Published: September 2, 2023 | By: American Luxury Staff

Cartier’s artisans embark on a virtuosic jewelry voyage once again with their latest high jewelry collection, mining inspiration far and wide, from India’s regal decadence to Asia’s fantastical menagerie. Le Voyage Recommencé Chapter II maps an odyssey of global inspiration translated into sparkling splendor.

The reversible Dohara necklace channels India’s Mughal jewelry and unites diamonds, white gold, and rock crystal with lacquered hues echoing Cartier’s iconic palette. Translucent crystal adds luminous volume, and the necklace’s three brilliant-cut diamonds sparkle with symmetry on both sides.

In the Bailong brooch, myth takes sculpted form; a magnificent dragon clutches a 30-carat tourmaline within its grasp for safeguarding. Meticulous precision almost brings the beast to life, its eye—a yellow pear-cut diamond eye—suggesting a fiery character in a fusion of reverence and artistry.

Botanical wonder blooms in Pineas, where waving gold fronds cradle 14 carats of dazzling briolettes. Reminiscent of pine cones and cascading wisteria, the necklace captures nature’s poetry in precious metals and gems. The Mirragio necklace, meanwhile, finds inspiration in geometric form, its sapphire foundation presenting an instantly recognizable Cartier motif.

From mythic fauna to floral finesse, cultural treasures glimmer once again in this second installment of Cartier’s Le Voyage Recommencé collection. The Maison continues its tradition of transforming travel’s riches into wearable art. In each necklace, ring, and bracelet, globetrotting is made material in radiant form.
