In Magnitude, the new high jewelry collection by Cartier, Materials collide in a marriage of precious stones and ornamental hard stones rarely seen in high jewelry. An unexpected encounter, a stylistic feature steeped in character that balances technique with creative flair, updated by Cartier time and again since the early 20th century.
In Magnitude, Cartier brings together with bold, creative panache materials that were never meant to meet. Diamond allows rutilated quartz to sparkle; sapphire shines alongside matrix opal; emerald gleams next to rock crystal, and pink diamond is coupled with morganite and coral. Side by side the gems converse in a dialogue that flits between opacity and transparency, the mineral and the precious, pure colors and shimmering nuances, earth and light.
Original form, landscaped material, primary colors, varied nuances: the design translates the power of confrontation through an interplay of lines, ruptured rhythms and flowing movements. Light flashes from stones that bear the memory of the world. From this glittering collision, rippling rays of light project the force of the origins into the future.
