Watch: Style your way to rebellious chic with the Cactus de Cartier’s new additions

Can’t get enough of cacti? Cartier’s flora-inspired jewellery collection adds more precious, prickly pieces to love

Going green in haute joaillerie can have one of two meanings: Environmentally via man-made conscious diamonds or figuratively by wearing finely wrought plant life on your person. If you fall into the latter category ­— or straddle both — the Cactus de Cartier collection is right up your style street, especially if you love your jewellery to pack an unexpected punch.

Cactus de Cartier

Intended for the bold, confident woman from the get-go, the architectural domes and delineated spines make for a powerful feminine aesthetic. The new additions to the collection, which consist of bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces, further emphasises the thorny beauty of the cactus, adding brilliant colours both soft and intense in the form of chrysoprases, lazulis and aventurines. A duality that embodies wildness and sophistication at the same time, the designs even include a tactile element with pieces constructed of mobile studs and beads for shape and movement. Cacti lovers, how will you wear these stunning succulents?
