Modern Exotica in a Panther Earring
The “great cat” jewels designed by Cartier during the late 1940s and early 1950s seem to have impacted on the jewelry of the next two decades in such a manner as to catapult design into what may be seem as “the modern age”. Quite different from the styles which it preceded, these bejeweled treasures were re-interpreted time and time again by such modern jeweler icons as David Webb.
This pair of late 20th century earrings pays homage to those magnificent beasties of the past. The image of the stylized head of a panther is realized in yellow gold of 14k. Each earring is encrusted with sixty-six (66) brilliant cut diamonds of an estimated .45 carats, twelve (12) verdant green emeralds, one of which dots the tip of the nose and a pair of rubies set as slanted feline eyes. The wild cat is depicted with open jaws clenching a diamond-studded golden ring. Omega clip backs finish the earrings. If so desired a post could easily be added for pierced ears.
Date: Circa later 20th century.
Measurements: 15/16 of an inch (2.4 cm) in length by 1/2 of an inch (1.2 cm) in width. Weigh of 12.4 grams (7.9 dwt) for the pair.
Hallmarks: “14k”; “585”.
Note: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
