The Cartier Love Collection – A Testimony To Beauty And Minimalism

The Cartier Love is one of the world's best-known and most highly regarded jewelry collections.

This much-appreciated collection was launched in 1969 with a famous yet basic bracelet created by Aldo Cipullo.

Since then, the Love bracelet has possibly become the most well-known Cartier item, and pawnbrokers of Cartier Love bracelets can be found in every major city.

Also, Cartier has increased the number of jewelry pieces in the collection, all of which are adorned with the chic Love collection design.

The Love Bracelet
The Love bracelet is a straightforward, screw-head-adorned band of priceless metal.

Still, the screw design is more than just a basic pattern. The bracelet is secured in place by two tiny screws that are invisible from the outside.

It is not possible for the wearer to simply take the bracelet off her wrist. Instead, a little screwdriver must be used to loosen the bracelet.

Traditionally, the wearer's partner keeps the screwdriver. The bracelet represents love in this sense because it can only be removed or placed on with the cooperation of both partners, according to New Bond Street Pawnbrokers.

Cartier has extended the Love bracelet line over the years to include rings, earrings, and other items because the original bracelet has proven to be so popular.

Only To Couples
An interesting fact is that Cartier sold the Love bracelet only to couples in its early years.

Love bracelets were gifted by Louis Cartier himself to some of the most well-known couples of the era, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton and Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon.

Pawnbrokers of Cartier Love bracelets nowadays, however, are more concerned with the provenance, history, and value of the bracelet than just its connotation.

Gold Variations
Over time, this classic style has seen a little alteration. Vintage jewelry always has a special value of its own, but some Cartier Love bracelet styles stand out more than others.

Yellow gold was the only color available for the initial Love bracelets. Since then, rose gold and white gold versions have also been made available. Rose gold is still very popular, but yellow gold is still the most common.

White gold is not as iconic as the other two, while being a very popular option.

Even though the first Love bracelet was plain, some of them now have diamonds or other gemstones on them.

Diamonds are the most valuable gem available, but the traditional Love bracelet - especially the ones from the original design - is frequently more well-liked than the gemstone-encrusted variations that were subsequently produced.

Contemporary iterations of the Love bracelet exist as well, such as the Cartier Love cuff, which can be opened without a screwdriver. They are typically worth less than the original design.

Cartier Love Earrings
One example of a stylistic variation is the Cartier Love earrings. Most frequently seen are basic gold hoops adorned with the Love bracelet's screw head motif.

But if you look closely, you can find even more minimalist interpretations of the Love bracelet trend in the form of delicate studs with a very faint screw head imprint.

The Cartier Love Rings
Similar to other pieces in the collection, the Cartier Love ring has a screw head design. Similar to the bracelet, it is often crafted without any gemstones or diamonds.

This makes it the perfect- and much preferred - option for a wedding ring.

In addition to providing an intriguing and unique focal point and encapsulating the romantic mythos of the Love collection, the screw head pattern elevates the piece above a simple gold ring.

Similar to the bracelet, Cartier Love rings come in many gold varieties. Rose gold is also a popular option, but yellow gold is still the most frequent.

The Love Necklaces
The Love necklaces are another product of Cartier.

These often take the shape of a straightforward metal chain with a round pendant in the middle. Screw heads are again inset into the looping pendant.

These necklaces, which are understated and sophisticated, highlight the minimalist charms that have contributed to the Cartier Love collection's global success over the past fifty years.

If you want to pleasantly surprise your fiancée, wife, or girlfriend, you will certainly not go wrong by purchasing a piece of jewelry from Cartier's Love collection.
