Whether we are looking at multi-million dollar penthouses in New York on Zillow or imagining how we would spend our hypothetical lottery winnings, it’s definitely fun to imagine how the other half live. And one thing that a lot of wealthy people (understandably) are willing to drop a lot of money on is jewelry. In particular, Cartier has been designing beautiful rings and other pieces of jewelry for the rich and famous for over one and a half centuries.
Despite Cartier being founded in 1847 amid the French Revolution, a time that was infamously turbulent for the aristocratic wealthy, Cartier has thrived as a jeweler and become one of the world’s most beloved luxury brands. As a brand that is rich in history and known for its quality pieces, it is no surprise that the rich and famous are willing to drop a lot of money on the showstopper rings.
18K Yellow Gold Diamond Emerald Panther Ring
This 18k yellow gold panther ring may not be for everyone, but for the wealthy who own just about everything else, this is the perfect showstopper ring. The diamonds are approximately 1.15 in total carat weight. Additionally, the panther has a black onyx cabochon nose, and two marquises cut emerald eyes.
Platinum Diamond You’re Mine Solitaire Ring
This platinum solitaire diamond ring gives off royal vibes, which is no surprise when you look at Cartier’s own connections to royalty. The seventh king of England, King Edward, named Cartier’s founder, Louis Cartier, as the official jeweler of kings. Furthermore, Cartier was also worn by Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.
Even modern-day royals love to wear Cartier as Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has also been pictured wearing luxury jewelry. We could definitely see Kate Middleton wearing this stunning heart-shaped piece.
18K Pink Gold Diamond Juste Un Clou Pave Wrap Ring
This rose gold ring has a unique pave wrap shape, perfect for making a subtle statement. The tiny diamonds equate to 0.59 total carat weight, adding a bit of sparkly sophistication to even the most already elegant of wearers.
18K White Gold Diamond Tank Francaise Ring
This 18k white gold diamond Cartier ring will make a stunning and timeless investment piece for those who can afford it. The style is classic Cartier and it is the perfect piece to be passed down the generations.
18K White Gold Diamond Caresse D’Orchidees Par Ring
This flower ring looks almost identical to the one that sex and the city’s Samantha Jones bid on in the Sex and the City movie. The flower ring is definitely a statement piece and an elegant showstopper rolled into one.
1961 18kt Yellow Gold Present Day Diamond Ring
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and that is certainly the case when it comes to this beautiful Cartier ring covered in diamonds. This 1961 18kt Cartier ring is an astonishing six carats. The vintage piece would look stunning with a simple black dress and minimal accessories as the sparkle is all you need to make an impressive entrance.
18kt Rose, Yellow and White Gold Present Day Trinity Diamond Ring
The luxury French brand has created some of the flashiest, most extravagant rings you could ever imagine. But often buying a ring that comes in Cartier’s iconic little red box comes at a price so high that you could pay rent for a year. In the case of this 18kt rose, yellow, and white gold diamond ring, you might want to make those two-plus years of rent, or maybe even a house deposit!
Cartier Paris Nouvelle Vague Chrysoprase 18K Yellow Gold Cocktail Ring
This unique Cartier ring was made as a tribute to Paris and all its beauty. The 18k yellow gold cocktail ring’s teal color is vibrant and the spherical shape is stunning. This vintage style almost looks like something you could find in your grandma’s fine jewelry box. Unfortunately, unless your grandma was a movie star or is otherwise extremely wealthy, you may be disappointed to discover that this exact rare Cartier ring is a little out of her reach.
