Why Are All the It Girls Obsessed With The Cartier Panthère Watch?

04/05/2021

The Cartier Panthère is effortless, classy, and cool. She’s the It girl. She is the moment. But when the timepiece was launched in 1983, the Panthère first found A-list traction among It boys. Pierce Brosnan rocked it with a blowout and a pinky ring. Charlie Sheen’s character in Wall Street (1987) wore one to perfectly complement his slicked-back ’80s-finance-guy hair. Keith Richards enhanced his androgynous rock star appeal with one, and I could totally see Harry Styles following suit. (Somebody patch me into his stylist.)…

14/12/2020

The myths surrounding how much a man or woman should pay for an engagement ring are bountiful. Should you spend a month’s salary or three? Should you spend thousands or hundreds? Is it important that there are diamonds involved? As with so many wedding traditions, the notion of spending an expected certain amount on an engagement ring is increasingly outdated. It’s not easy to work out how much people spend on average. In 2016, This Is Money reported that, in the UK, those proposing…

Seashell Jewelry

03/07/2020

As women, we have a profound love for jewels. We first saw them as our moms were getting ready to go out and we loved looking into their things and being astonished by the beautiful jewels. After that, we wanted to wear them so they’d always buy jewels for us little girls and we would wear them for hours. Long story short, jewels have been part of our life since forever and we always caught ourselves wanting to buy even…

24/12/2019

Women have been given jewels as tokens of love since the Stone Age. The precious stones with which Cleopatra dazzled Mark Antony must still exist, somewhere, today, and every few years one of the Duchess of Windsor’s jewels comes to auction, a sparkling reminder of a love that rocked the nation. Throughout history, jewels have served as symbols of legendary romances. Elizabeth Taylor’s passionate love affairs (with both men and diamonds) resulted in her vast collection of jewels, the most…

20 Unique Emerald Engagement Rings

05/07/2019

More recently, celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Irina Shayk, Olivia Wilde…

Big Earrings Trend

26/06/2019

Taking a look back at all the Spring/Summer 2019 collections presented in September 2018, we noticed something quite pleasant; the return of jewelleries. Although jewels have always been present during the fashion weeks, still it wasn’t given major importance to bags, shoes, and other accessories. Jewels were there as an extra detail, but didn’t play a significant role in the way a woman looked. During the presentation of the Spring/Summer 2019 collections, jewels, especially earrings, almost dominated the runways. The…
