Inspired by the necklace worn by Mexican film star and femme fatale Maria Felix, and then recreated by Cartier, we introduce our version of this statement croc necklace for a fraction of the price!
In 1975, Maria Félix, a famous client with a fondness for extravagance, walked into Cartier’s boutique in Paris. It is believed that she carried a live baby crocodile in a jar and commissioned a jewelled necklace that was an exact representation of the creature. More than 40 years ago since the iconic necklace was made, there have been many jewellery brands inspired by big and bold animal accessories. This statement piece is made from acrylic and alloy. Available in silver, gold and green.
