At the heart of Cartier’s new iconic collection is a feat of craftsmanship, a homage to its legacy and a profusion of attitudes.

The only way forward is to reinvention and a renewal one’s identity, and that’s just Cartier delivered with the new Clash de Cartier collection. Heralded as the maison’s new-fangled jewellery signature, the collection reinstates the maison’s heritage of studs, beads and clous carrés, into a singular, ribbed mesh. The result: a sophisticated union of aristocratic and rebellious codes.

Encapsulating the ultimate symbol of femininity, Clash de Cartier is rounded with soft contours but polished with an proud sharpness. Lavish in size and precise in structure, it is the master of opposites, in that it combines the articulation of craftmanship and the bon vivant nature of shapes, colour and statement hardware.

The essence of Clash de Cartier lies in its time-honed affinity for geometric shapes since the 30s. Through volumes, reliefs, circles and squares, the collection boasts generous proportion in architectural finesse. Studs are anchored together yet break free from conventional, evoking a free-moving spirit, playing on the glint of light and movement. Rings in 18K pink gold ae made to be stacked and layered in endless possibilities, fluid and androgynous. Corals are naturally sourced entirely from Sardinia, Italy.

Simple they may be, but the clean lines of Clash de Cartier is perfected by way of austere craftmanship. The depth of movement in a cluster of studs is articulated by jewellery experts in the way they are mounted and polished. Each step is calculated with technique and tool—it takes several stages of finishing touches to procure rhe delicate sheen upon the domed clous carrés. For the comfort of its wearer, Cartier imbues delicately scalloped finishes that impart an even elegant character.
