A bracelet straight out of a House of exception.
It was in the middle of the 19th century that the illustrious House of Cartier came into being. It specialised in luxury jewellery and success came to the label almost immediately. Ever since its creation, the brand has lost count of the number of women who have fallen for its prestigious and unique items of jewellery. A piece of Cartier jewellery is simultaneously modern and refined. One of the most iconic creations of the House is none other than the Love bracelet. The delightful name, along with the piece it refers to, were thought up by Aldo Cipullo in 1969. It is still a perfect symbol of love today.
The Love bracelet, a legendary Cartier piece.
Aldo Cipullo is a talented Italian-American designer who, while working for Cartier, designed one of the brand's most beautiful pieces of jewellery, the Love bracelet. Its design is knowingly modern, but understated at the same time. Above all, the designer wanted to create a symbol of undying love, the one, the only. As for the actual design of the piece, it is a gold bangle with graphic motifs resembling the heads of screws. At the time the aesthetic was novel, just like its opening mechanism which was unlike any other. The way the Love bracelet opens and closes sets it apart from all the other bracelets on the market. You need an actual screwdriver to put this bracelet on !
This Cartier jewellery is sealed to the person who wears it, like intense, indestructible love. Today, it has become one of the brand's signature pieces and that is also in no small part linked to the legendary couples who have worn it, like Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Today there are many different variations of the model with myriad choices of colours and materials. The aim here is to make declarations of love universal so that everyone can find a model befitting their joy.
