The inaugural piece that I have chosen is the zebra ring, which I feel is a great example of this season’s animal-themed trend which hit the fashion scene in spring of 2013 and which is still thriving and evolving. There is a wide range of options to choose from, varying from the delicate to the ornate. Animals are taking over every type of jewelry—rings, earrings, and necklaces. Almost all fashion houses address their jewellery collections to the animal world topic. Even brands which built reputation on classical jewelry with precious stones, produce animal themed jewellery too.

Cartier was the first luxury jewellery house which started to produce the exotic spots of a panther on its watch brands. Now their panther is more than a mere symbol Cartier. It is a timeless icon which is both predatory and elegant and has made a mark on the world of jewellery.
