The Alignment of the Planets
It is inspired by the rare phenomenon in which the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn line up in a row. As a result, this bracelet has a unique appearance.
Cartier jewelry decided that the white gold ‘cage’ was especially fitting for the pearls. These Tahitian pearls of greenish-bronze and peacock feather colors look stunning above all. Coupled with white gold, they are reminiscent of the unsolved mysteries of the Universe.

Lights of the Earth
Yellow sapphires, fire opals, and diamonds create the illusion of the Earth viewed from space. They certainly look like millions of red, yellow and blue lights coming together to perform a mesmerizing show.
Furthermore, the gemstones are free to move along rails of yellow gold and shine like an endless array of illuminations. A ring, a bracelet, and a large pendant are part of this Cartier jewelry set.
This galactic Cartier jewelry reproduces the wonders of the galaxy, the solar system, and especially the black holes. Diamonds represent the shining stars as each one shimmers brilliantly due to their Serti Vibrant setting.
A hollow dome completely encapsulates the diamonds which are fitted on a meta-quartzite base. The base is enriched with golden pyrite. It provides more depth to the piece as a result.
