Cartier’s animal inspired jewelry has amazed the world for more than a century. Its latest design, a one-of-a kind platinum cuff shaped like a serpent, is no exception to this. The cuff is a miniature of a serpent covered with 1,700 diamonds, holding a 53.78-carat cabochon-cut rare emerald. It took seven craftsmen about 2,000 hours to create the cuff by hand.
