A Sapphire Stunner
If she has perfected a feline saunter and has the taste and style of an empress, what better gift to give than this necklace from Cartier’s classic Panthère collection? A statement piece worthy of Cleopatra, this treasure pays tribute to “devastating seduction, mysterious beauty, and untamed character” and features brilliant briolette-cut diamonds and sapphire beads, emerald eyes, and an onyx nose totaling 7.15 carats. “I’m definitely getting this for someone special,” says Christian de Berdouare, Chicken Kitchen CEO. “She loves art, especially the kind she can hang on her neck or ears. She also loves Cartier, and this is such an elegant and timeless piece.” The Panthère collection plays a featured role in W.E., Madonna’s new movie about Wallis Simpson, the notorious American divorcée who so captivated King Edward VIII that he abdicated his throne to be with her. As the story goes, Simpson was the woman for whom the storied jewelry house created the first three-dimensional panther, in 1948.
