The Return of Shoulder Jewelry

In 1925, Cartier surprised the world of jewelry at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts by unveiling a collar draped around the shoulders without a clasp or fastening. After fading into the background over the years, today it returns as part of the Sixième Sens par Cartier High Jewelry collection in the form of a unique piece designed to fit the body as closely as possible and glide naturally over the skin.

Articulated around a central cabochon-cut Colombian emerald totaling 16.43 carats, it features undulations that flow across a setting paved with diamonds or coated in black lacquer, creating a chiaroscuro effect which is as rhythmic as it is graphic.
