Having our photo taken in front of this rather dramatic painting of the panther at Cartier.
The panther is more than a symbol for Cartier – it is a timeless icon that is elegant and predatory. It is restrained yet always ready to act. Guess it speaks of their jewellery … and their clientele?
We came to get Mummy’s watch serviced – sat waiting patiently for the lady while she took down all the details required.But as we left, I saw Mummy looking into one of the display cases. Mummy is there anything you like in this case? Mummy said, “Yes, Darcy dearest. Maybe some day I’ll have another one of those baubles again. I love the last one but it is no longer to be worn but for safe-keeping.”
Ah, Mummy, so all that stuff you used to talk about in your marketing days … are they not true then?
May’s comment: Hope none of my ex-De Beers colleagues are reading this! LOL! Yes, we coined the line “A diamond is forever” – until it isn’t, I guess. Oh, actually it also referred to it’s physical qualities. It does lasts forever!
P.s. I would never say no to diamonds though! LOL!!!! One can still love them without the sentimental value.
