Hi! I am actually considering this necklace, but haven't had a chance to try it on. I would consider visiting the "other" form and see. They have a huge subforum devoted to Cartier and you may find more pics and comments. Also, try YouTube and IG. I've found reviews and pics on it. Good luck!

@LLJsmom thanks for the tip - the only problem is I don’t know what this other forum is! ‍ I see it alluded to many times and I gather these forum rules don’t let you refer to it by name. Any suggestions what key words I might put into a google search to produce the right result? ☺️
yes - I haven’t had a chance to try it on either. Sydney is currently in lockdown.

Do you enjoy bags? Maybe search forums that focus on bags have a wide range of subforums. :)

Thank you for the pics @LLJsmom - that was so sweet of you. I am thinking about the medium (larger) size so it was fortuitous that you tried on that size.

You’re welcome. It’s pretty. And it’s actually quite hefty for the super thin chain it’s on. That was a concern of mine actually. I think the chain is purposefully delicate, waaaaaayyyyyy more delicate than VCA chains that hold a much much lighter single motif pendant. I feel like if subjected to a medium strength accidental yank it could break. I asked them and of course they could say truthfully that they have never heard of any incident of breakages but this necklace has been out for what, 2 seconds? Of course they are not going to tell me, “yes, it’s delicate and the gold is heavy, be careful”. But I’m not an idiot. Nevertheless if I liked it enough I would get it. Not sure how much repair costs would be, but I doubt it would be free. I am buying it with full use of my common sense and the chain is super fine. A design flaw if you ask me. Or maybe they’re trying to skimp on gold on the chain and put it all into the clash spikes. Regardless, I do really like “non-pendant” type necklaces that are shorter. And neither VCA or Cartier have much in this style so it’s on my list, just not at the top for now. Let me know what you think when you try it on.

Thanks Yssie.

I have tried this on OP and thought it was beautiful. I own the clash bangle and wear it everyday. Clash is really special and super pretty / elegant in person that doesn’t always translate as well in photos. I don’t have a photo of me wearing the necklace but to be honest the FULL clash necklace has my attention now after trying on the soft clash bracelet. That thing is stunning!
