The Cartier Apatura Necklace was born from the observation of the infinitely small.

Take a close look at a butterfly wing, let yourself be dazzled by the beauty of its shades, and imagine an embellishment that would reflect its iridescent beauty. This unique piece from Cartier’s always-dazzling High Jewelry Division not only reproduces natural beauty in a figurative way, it also evokes, through an abstract composition and a display of shimmering colors, the idea of the most delicate insect. It’s a story told in Australian opals, diamonds, orange sapphire and sapphire balls, that can be worn with or without its detachable pendant. A portion of the proceeds helps fund the Cartier Philanthropy Foundation, which has invested 65 million+ Swiss Francs with 40 partners, helping build a stronger future in 29 low-income countries.
