We purchased this circa 2000 panther ring of fine quality from a couple in Toronto, Canada who insisted it was from their local Cartier shop. Although it is stamped 750 indicating that it is 18K white gold and set with fine quality gems, it is not stamped Cartier. Thus, we are not charging Cartier prices. At $7175 this is a real bargain since it is beautifully detailed and executed with a panther holding in its paws a fine quality oval cabochon cut ruby weighing approximately 1 1/2 carats and features a small round cabochon cut ruby in each eye as well as 23 square cut rubies in the body of the animal. These additional rubies weigh approximately another 3/4 carat. The piece is also pave set with 89 brilliant cut diamonds weighing an additional 3/4carat. The total weight of all 115 gemstones is approximately 3 carats.
Panther necklace and bracelet of yellow gold is also available in diamonds with ruby eyes and emeralds in the body of the pieces.
