Take a look at these creatures of desire by French jeweller Cartier, aren’t they just frivolously fierce?
Panthere de Cartier ring in lacquered gold and peridot eyes
The lacquer-speckled gold and the green gemstones are just opulent, but the idea of a roaring panther head fashioned into a ring, with the finger going through its mouth, is very clever. I could only dream of how this would look with a sharp black suit, buttoned-up white shirt, and those Lanvin Richelieu suede-capped brogues. I wouldn’t dare ask how much it costs.
Another view. It doesn’t hurt to dream, does it?
More so could I not fathom even thinking of asking about the price of this one, though I would kill to wear the pave version even more casually with everyday clothes.

For now, I’ll just have to stick with this friendly-looking leopard ring that I got on sale at Topman.
He’s got black plastic jewel eyes and even another inside his mouth. Rawr.
