Worn like this, the current trend for delicate jewellery becomes instantly classic

Ancient amulets were ascribed magical powers; we've fallen so hard for 2016's precious trinkets we're convinced they're charged with something supernatural. Ringed with gold, studded with a single diamond and flooded with rich colour, gleaming Guilloche gold or tactile Snakewood, the Amulette de Cartier precious jewellery demands our worship.

Proving that some jewellery really does go with everything, the Amulette collection stands out from the same-old gold and silver everyone's wearing right now. Worn alone (think a single necklace glittering against the collarbone) or clustered together on the ear or wrist, the Amulette is eye-catching for all the right reasons.

Modern magic: the ONLY jewellery cool girls are wearing

Pick your poison from the beguiling earthy new Snakewood, Guilloche gold, subtle white mother of pearl or the intense onyx, malachite, lapis lazuli,  pink opal, cornelian and green chrysoprase, then choose from yellow, pink or white gold for the delicate chains. Oh, this? This is a modern heirloom.
