It’s mushy. It’s romantic. It’s the one day of the year when love is on everyone’s mind. And for many, it can be overwhelming.

No matter who you are, there can be a lot of pressure on February 14th. Well, there’s one thing that you can always count on to get you a meaningful and memorable gift: jewelry.
The Iconic Gift: Cartier Love Bracelet
Created in New York in 1969, the LOVE bracelet is an icon of jewelry design. This close-fitting bracelet is composed of two rigid arcs, and is worn on the wrist and removed using a specific screwdriver. The closure is designed with two functional screws placed on either side of the bracelet: you will need the help of another person and a specific screwdriver to open or close it. The bracelet comes in 18k yellow gold, 18k rose gold, or 18k white gold.
Whether you’re going for Cartier’s iconic Love collection, the legendary Juste un Clou line, or one of its Trinity pieces, Cartier jewelry is a worthwhile investment. Cartier’s also holds status symbol appeal and promising payoffs at resale. The now-iconic Cartier Love Bracelet also holds 102% of its retail value on the market, making it a must-have piece and an exceptional gift for someone you care for.
