Cartier, the esteemed name in luxury, has once again outdone itself with its latest collection of high jewellery named "Le Voyage Recommence." Designed by the brilliant Jacqueline Karachi, the collection takes its inspiration from various world cultures, making each piece a journey in itself.

One of the standout pieces is the "Dohar" necklace, a clear nod to Indian aesthetics. It beautifully marries diamonds with a tricolor of enamels - red, blue, and green. This union not only brings out the brilliance of the diamonds but also evokes the rich colors prevalent in Indian art and decor.

But the voyage doesn't end in India. Another striking piece in the collection is a brooch that pays homage to Chinese traditions. Here, a dazzling diamond dragon, symbolic of strength and luck in Chinese folklore, finds its resting place on a large tourmaline, a gemstone revered in Chinese history for its energy and vibrancy.
