Catalogue Note

A popular symbol seen in Art Deco jewels, the arrow motif allowed jewelers such as Cartier to show off a variety of diamond cuts. The geometric and architectural influences of this piece call to mind the Egyptian Pyramids as jewelers looked East for inspiration. Other Cartier designs, such as their Temple brooches, also display the design house's preference for using architecture to showcase impeccable design and craftsmanship.
