The panther might have made its debut at Cartier over a century ago in 1914, but it has lost none of its ferocity. This modern update has a geometric cutout design that ups its fierceness.

CUFF ’EM UP
There are two ways to do cufflinks: classic or quirky. Famed American jeweller Harry Winston’s take is modern and sophisticated, utilising Zalium, a high-tech zirconium-based alloy used in the aerospace industry.
Two brilliant diamonds of approximately 0.11 carats add a subtle touch of brilliance. Montblanc’s colourful globe-shaped links sit squarely in the latter camp, lending a dash of whimsical charm.

Adorn your wrist with the warm, tactile luxury of leather or the cool, modern sheen of metal – or both. Rock it on its own, or pair it with a favourite watch to make a statement without having to say a word.

Inspired by Rome’s grand Colosseum, the architectural B.Zero1 pendant was first launched in 1999. Its latest iteration Labyrinth combines white and pink gold in its signature spiralling bands.

Like the trenchcoat, the ID bracelet has its origins in the military. Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta elevates the humble accessory with decorative enamel and serpentine stones in place of a name, with its signature Intrecciato design engraved on alternating links.

These solid pink gold cufflinks are part of the new additions Cartier recently welcomed to its iconic Juste un Clou family, which also includes a tie and a collar pin. Though undeniably understated, they won’t escape a discerning eye.

Turkish jewellery designer Begum Khan’s ornate nature-inspired pins have an old-world mystique, and her influences from a childhood surrounded by Ottoman art and antiques are unmistakable. Bold and distinct, they speak to an artistic soul. Niessing’s Topia pins, on the other hand, have a more abstract beauty. Inspired by paper sculptures, the hand-folded Topia is delicate and versatile, just as elegant on a jacket lapel as on a T-shirt.

BAND OF BROTHERS
Drawing inspiration from architecture, Boucheron’s Quatre collection features bands of different textures stacked together for dramatic effect. A black strip of “clous de Paris” PVD in between white gold stacks highlights the French maison’s skilful craftsmanship. Then there’s German jeweller Niessing’s handcrafted ring, which pays tribute to the traditional technique of fine hammering.
