Thanks.  I forgot I even posted in that threadImage  Is there much difference between the Cartier and the Memoire?

Post by crown1 » April 7th, 2007, 6:00 am
i suppose that depends on who you ask.  i selected memoire for several reasons.  one i preferred the syle of the channel set and cartier told me they only do pave.  if you look closely at the channel set cartier it actually has prongs or whatever you call those on pave.  i wanted all platinum and cartier told me no platinum.  memoire has a very good reputation and i liked the description of the manufacturing process and such.  i was able to get 2.97tcw g vs platinum for much less than the cartier gold which cartier told me they don't give tcw's on diamonds so small.  i got a great deal on what i wanted so i went with memoire since a trusted jeweler is having it made for me.  when i see it i might be sorry.  time will tell.  i did not need to have the cartier stamp inside the ring to make me happy.  i do like the cartier trinity rings of all types i just couldn't see the wisdom of choosing cartier for this particuliar ring.


eta:  the info i got from cartier was via phone since there are none near me.

I don''t have a Cartier near me, either.  My jeweler sells HOF and I think he would be able to order Memoire, since HOF aquired them.  I don''t need the "C" inside the rings.  I saw the Memoire on Bill Barnes website and was considering that as an option.  I reallly think I would need to try this style on...I have no idea how a trinity would fit me.

They do make one with channel set stones, it is about 8000.00 dollars. The pave one, with the pink, white and yellow diamonds in pink, white and yellow gold was a limited edition and about 58,000.00.

good luck on finding the memoire in stock.  i called several different states and they can get it but don''t have it.  maybe if you wear a size the company has made up in stock your jeweler can get it on memo.  i do know a north carolina jeweler told me she could get a size 6 from memoire since they had one made.  i would have had to drive 6 hours and 6 is not my size.  i looked at the pics i could find on hands and am taking a chance.  the good lord looks out for little children and dummies and i feel ok on this.  i hope.  let us know what you decide i am always interested in the trinity and rolling rings.

hi df!  i don''t mean to dispute your word but i just called cartier nyc and she confirms it is pave set in a channel set look and both the wg and tri color gold are $9500..  i don''t have any insight in this only what she told me and i can see the prongs inside what appears to be a channel set.  am i missing another style?Image


Post by diamondfan » April 7th, 2007, 6:45 am
It looks channel set, Kaleigh and I tried it on in Cartier and I recall it was a bit under 9000.00, I might be off a bit here or there, but it was definitely under 9000.00. They have just had a price increase on all items, so I am sure it has gone up. It looked like a channel and was flatter so it did not roll as well as a domed ring.

did you try tri or plain wg or yg?  did you like the look?  thanks!


Post by Harriet » April 7th, 2007, 7:06 am
I was in Cartier on Tuesday. I could be wrong, but I think the rings are channel-set. I tried both the WG ($9800) and Tri-G($9,500) ones on, and they may be too chunky for me.

Post by risingsun » April 7th, 2007, 7:16 am
Chunkier than the plain trinity you have now?

The fingers on my right hand are more "stock" size than those on my left hand...weirdImage  If I do a middle finger ring, I could wear a 6, ring finger is a 5.  Left hand is a half size down [or more] on all fingers.  I have difficulty with sizing, as it is, with a single band.  I wonder if this is the right ring for me.  I couldn''t do a special order, in case it doesn''t fit.  I''m disappointed that you just can''t go into a jeweler''s and try them onImage

We tried on the tri colored one like Katie Holmes has. It did not roll as nicely.

risingsun, you may have better luck than i did and be able to find the memoire in a store.  i would not give up without trying if it was something i wanted.  i almost just let it slide since it is a risk but since the jeweler had me come in and "sized" me himself i am not worried if it does not fit as i think he will stand behind his work.

Much. Less rolling fun too.

Post by crown1 » April 7th, 2007, 7:53 am
i do not know about the ease of rolling of the memoire.  does anybody out there have one?  if so, can you help out?  i do know that memoire is noted for their precision work.   we will see.  i think the rings that have been tried on have been cartier.


eta:  i would not expect something that was not rounded or domed like the regular trinity to roll as easily.  i don't expect that memoire or cartier would continue to make them if they are getting complaints or having problems.  this ring has been a staple with them (cartier) since the 1920's i don't know if that included the diamond styles or not.  i think the ring rising is looking at had the burnished look scattered and it is rounded?  is that correct?

eta:  rising, facet fire addressed the comfort and rolling ease in  her thread.  she also talked about size.  if you go back and read that as i just did it may help you.  if you are interested i got some prices on the style you looked at.  they are about a month old and i am sure they have gone up as the tri color price is 8950 and the wg 9300.  these are cartier.  tri burnished diamonds 2400.  not current but a good ballpark figure.  i do have some memoire prices on that style but no need to go into that if you are not interested.  hth.  probably as clear as mud.


Post by risingsun » April 7th, 2007, 8:11 am
Crown, it looks rounded to me, but that's only based upon pics.  I think the ring looks like the plain bands, but with the scattered diamonds, so I think it would have the same shape.  I would love to do an in-person comparison between the Cartier and the Memoire, but that would involve more traveling than I'm willing to do, at this pointImage

Post by crown1 » April 7th, 2007, 8:23 am
reising, if you go memoire that style is available in .32 and .54.  also different color golds and platinum.  a month old price from pearlmans in tri .54 was 1500..  the beauty of that would be working with a trusted ps vendor.  they did not have it on their site but said they could get it.  not sure if that is returnable but think maybe not.  wouldn't hurt to call.

eta:  i hope giving the prices is not tasteless.  i know it made a great difference when i was deciding and i hoped it might save you some calls.

Giving the price is helpfulImage  I appreciate all your help.  I''ve been trying to get on Pearlman''s site, but for some reason it won''t load.  That happens sometimes with Pearlman''s....Image

Post by crown1 » April 7th, 2007, 8:57 am
i don''t know if you caught the eta above with the other prices.  i don''t think you will find any rolling rings on the memoire section of pearlmans unless they are a new addition.  let me know if you make a decision.  i am interested.


Post by risingsun » April 7th, 2007, 9:22 am
I will let you know.  I'm debating about having my sapphire [in my three stone RHR] recut by Richard Homer, but then I might want to reset it.  I wear it with a diamond band on the same hand and then THAT might need a reset.  Since I recently upgraded my wedding set to HOF and ACA, I'm thinking all my present RHR diamonds should be upgraded tooImage  So my RHR project is quickly spiraling out of controlImage  I've been thinking of the trinity as a way to have a nice RHR to wear and save the "project" for the future...besides, who doesn't need some choices in RHRImage   I've gone totally nutty since I found PSImage

ETA:  Yes I did see the prices that you listed.  Sounds reasonable to me.

this makes life interesting!  i hope whatever you want the most makes it on your finger.

I went with the Cartier in tri gold, not stones, because I could go there and try it on. The jeweler near me that sells Memoire does not stock the rolling rings and said I would be obligated as it was a special order. Forget that.

Now I am loving the wide rose gold band I saw at Cartier when I went to get the rolling ring. It is next on my list, I love rose gold and am building some pieces and this was a neat ring. No diamonds, just the Cartier C''s etched on it.

df, is it on the cartier website?  it sounds nice i would like to see it if it is online.


Post by diamondfan » April 7th, 2007, 2:42 pm
Yes, go to their cite, under jewelery collections pick "C Motif". It is on page three, the top left ring, it is shown in yellow gold. I think it is $1250.00

I would not ask my jeweler to bring in a Memoire if I was obligated to purchase it, either.  I'll have to ask.  There's a Cartier Boutique about 2 hours from me, so I could take a look.  The price is a good bit higher than the Memoire, however.

ETA:  If I tried the Cartier and loved the look, I suppose I could always order the Memoire...  After doing the new wedding set just last month, I dare not go nuts on another ringImage

Post by diamondfan » April 7th, 2007, 3:10 pm
I was only concerned because rolling rings can be funky with sizing, since it fits differently than a single band would fit. I did not trust just ordering my normal size so I bagged on Memoire. They do make nice rings though. In all gold, the Cartier in tri color is 800.00. Not sure about the comparable Memoire ring.

df, it is a nice looking ring.  i am very fond of wide bands.  i have a wide wedding band that i wear solo when i don't want to wear any bling.  it is hand engraved with our last name initial and my and my husband's first name initials.

i think the cartier band would be nice for you.  do you know the story on calling it the birthday band or something like that.  i figured it was a cartier anniversary or something?

i have been lead to believe that memoire makes the rolling rings as ordered.  i think that is why i haven't found them in stock anywhere.  i suppose that is the reason they are not doing returns. 

eta:  16R/3.0P  $1800.  that would be all platinum 3mm
        16R/3.0T  $575.                           tri-color
        16R/3.0W  $575.                          white gold                   all prices are about a month old.  if you have a regular jeweler almost all have anniversary sales
                                                                                            when you can get 20% off of everything.  it is a good time to order things like this.  jmho.


Post by diamondfan » April 7th, 2007, 3:41 pm
I just bought the Cartier in tri gold. The wide band might be a next purchase because I love rose gold. But thanks, since I just bought one, I do not need another one...I would have loved one with diamonds but the all pave one is the one I love and I am not sure if they are still making it, I was told it was a limited edition...
