$1 to $1 Billion Holiday Gift Guide: Bejeweled Cartier Panther Brooch
Very few words melt a hard-hearted fashionista like Cartier. She'll positively purr when unwrapping this white gold & platinum set gem from the house's High Jewelry Collection. Showcasing the 66 carat Ceylon sapphire are over 100 cabochon sapphires worth 10.7 carats, 868 brilliant diamonds (16.4 carats), and two glowing emerald eyes (1.1 carats). Meow! $1.1 million - inquire at Cartier.com.
For more-more-more Cartier, The Fashion & Beauty Bargain Queens recommend the book Cartier by Hans Nadelhoffer. For just under $50, you can become rich with knowledge about how the house rose from regular jeweler to international icon.
