Cartier Gold and Diamond Pendant Earrings $35,000>
Macklowe Gallery

Created by Cartier London, these contemporary gold pendant earrings are pavé-set with over six carats of diamonds. Designed as a flexible cascade of bombé forms, pavé-set with round brilliant-cut diamonds and outlined in gold, each shield-form top suspends a ring joined by bars to a domed circular pendant, terminating in inverted diamond tips. These stylish and flexible pendant earrings showcase their diamonds in yellow gold, intensifying their white light and sparkle. Signed: “Cartier JC,” “750 nos 661003,” and English hallmark Curators Notes: Loosely based on Jhumka forms, these pendant earrings by Cartier reflect the firm’s long relationship to India as a rich source of creative inspiration. Jacques Cartier, who helped lead the firm to international fame, cultivated deep relationships with the Indian aristocracy, some of whom stayed as honored guests at the Cartier family home outside of London.
