Here is one for the cat lover's out there. In the early part of the 20th century when animal skins were very fashionable Cartier created their "panther" motif jewelry.

This 18k yellow gold hanging panther pendent is very reminiscent of some of the panther jewelry that Cartier created in the 1990's. For more info on Cartier panther jewelry please read this article.
