“We are very happy to present two unique pieces of jewellery at this auction. The yellow diamond is fancy intense yellow, and it is very rare to find a fancy-coloured diamond with this unique colour. Cartier’s panther ring represents the finest form of jewellery art. It is the best quality and design, you will find. No wonder, Cartier was called “the jeweller of kings and king of jewellers”,” says Katrin Mikkelsen Sørensen, Head of International Jewellery at Bruun Rasmussen.
