Cartier’s “The Love” Collection
Nothing says “I adore you” like Cartier’s “The Love” collection. It’s been around since the late 1960s, with the bangle being particularly popular amongst fashion experts, famously needing its own screwdriver to be fastened and taken off. The screwdriver is also available in the form of a necklace, allowing the bracelet to be “locked” onto one person, while the “key” is kept around the neck of another, as a symbol for their commitment to their relationship. The Love Bracelet was designed by Aldo Cipullo, and Cartier expanded the line to include cufflinks, rings, earrings, necklaces, and watches. Early versions featured gold plating, while more recent designs are created from solid gold or platinum.
