Cartier Introduces the Love Bracelet
New York – In 1970 when love it at its prime, Cartier launches the Love themed bracelets that come complete with screwdriver to fasten to a loved one only to be taken off by the one who fastened it. A binding type of love is sure to last. Either way the bangles made entirely of gold come spotted with diamonds, completely encrusted in diamonds, or simply make a statement in yellow, pink, or white gold (and start at around $5000.00).
The bracelet symbolizes more than love today, it symbolizes an iconic fashion accessory as notable as any Birkin bag and as hyped up as if you were seen at lunch with Angelina and Brad Pitt themselves. Taking a snapshot of a Love bracelet and sharing it over Instagram will undoubtedly get you hundreds of likes and a mountain of jealous comments in the tone of “I die!” and “Gimme!”
Cartier can be known for creating necklaces that are fit for the Queen herself but the Love bracelet is what everyone wants these days… Even me! Okay especially me!
