Ferocious Fingers

Take a look at these creatures of desire by French jeweller Cartier, aren't they just frivolously fierce?

Panthere de Cartier ring in lacquered gold and peridot eyes

The lacquer-speckled gold and the green gemstones are just opulent, but the idea of a roaring panther head fashioned into a ring, with the finger going through its mouth, is very clever. I could only dream of how this would look with a sharp black suit, buttoned-up white shirt, and those Lanvin Richelieu suede-capped brogues. I wouldn't dare ask how much it costs.

Another view. It doesn't hurt to dream, does it?

More so could I not fathom even thinking of asking about the price of this one, though I would kill to wear the pave version even more casually with everyday clothes.

For now, I'll just have to stick with this friendly-looking leopard ring that I got on sale at Topman.

He's got black plastic jewel eyes and even another inside his mouth. Rawr.

I want the first ring, it's awesome! BTW the DIY hand paint shirt was great too.

i remember that rachel zoe has the 1st one. my favorite panthere ring has pave diamonds and little black onyx spikes coming out. stunning! the day i flipped over a magazine and saw the ad for that ring is the day i fell in love with cartier.

urban outfitters also has/had panther rings and such.

the ring is certainly very intriguing. I must say the topman one is a nice compensation!

lovely blog, your DIY posts are especially wonderful, and so inspiring!
