An 18ct yellow gold ‘Perruque’ cocktail ring by Cartier c.2020, from their ‘Paris Nouvelle Vague’ collection, the wide gold domed band supporting a highly articulated mass of gold spheres strung together to form a pom-pom style tassel cluster which has wonderful movement and according to the brand a “celebratory, extravagant allure that sparkles with grace”.
