Does anyone have a love cuff? I always shied away from the full bangle because I need to be able to take bracelets off for work. If so, please share pics and opinions!

Yup, I had it for several years, and then sold it. But I am a one off in that my wrists are really bony and it ended up being uncomfortable to wear for long. Most people won't have that issue I think. And I was paranoid about scratches so I couldn't enjoy wearing my piece without worry. I still think the Love bracelet is stunning, and would try a full love if I could get over my issue with scratches. But I can't so it's a no for me.

It’s so true- I would be so annoyed to scratch up such a pretty (and expensive) piece! I could totally see that. Fortunately cuff bracelets usually don’t bother me, although wider cuffs have given me trouble in the past. Thanks for sharing your experience!

@MizNina, lovely stacks! Who made the bracelet (or is it a bangle?) with the marquis and round diamond bezels? Very pretty and unique.

Thank you ☺️ I had my Jeweler make it with leftover diamonds I had from another project small rounds and a single marquis ❤️ oh and it’s an oval bangle

This is gorgeous! I didn’t even know they make charm bracelets. Going on my ever growing wish list. Mod pic please.

Thanks, Fabfashion!
I’ve been collecting them for a while. I’m not sure if they make charms anymore. These are all vintage.

It's beyond gorgeous, definitely in "work of art" territory!!! I saw your other thread and it has been a really fantastic long term project, thank you for sharing with us.

Got this for my 5-0. Kinda weird gift but strangely appropriate. Though truly not everyone’s cup of tea, I love it.

The Ecrou in WG. It is so much more comfortable than the love bracelet. Been wearing 24/7 except to shower. Just love this crazy bangle.

@LLJsmom this is stunning and I love how the ecrou is a cool, slightly "underground" edgy piece.

Please can you elaborate on why it's more comfortable than a Love to wear? Also, I've read that the nuts on the bangle move around a lot, does it affect you/your view on the piece at all?

Thanks in advance!

I have more flat and very bony wrists so when I had the love, my arm would twist in the opposite direction of the bracelet and it would be very uncomfortable on the sides of my wrist. I think the fine threads on the Ecrou just make it more textured to the touch. Resting against my wrist and higher up on my arm it is just comfortable, like how the VCA signature perlee has a beaded edge which makes that a very comfortable against the skin. I think most people don't have that issue with the Love.

The nuts tend to all roll to the outer edge of my arm, toward the pinky side of my hand. So I end up seeing just all the threads, except the stationary nut on the thumb side. I don't mind because I find the actual bracelet sans nuts very beautiful and shiny. I would get this bracelet even without the nuts. I just leave them on the side. Maybe I'll space them out once, but really I'm fine with them clustered out of view.

I'll post some pics. Please excuse my dry skin. I really should moisturize regularly. And you will see what I mean by bony wrists. I have creepy alien forearms. The last one is the underside of my arm. This is in indoor lighting. The polish is beautiful. In the sun it’s very shiny.

This is SO edgy and glam :cool2:

@LLJsmom - you have such dramatic and exciting style!! The Ecrou - in white, no less, hard-edged and "unforgiving" - next to pastel, neutral, womanly Chalcedony. And it totally works. Seriously - how do you figure these combos out!? :geek: I need you to style me!!

Happy birthday!!!!!!! :appl: :love::appl: You've wanted this piece for a long time - perfect way to celebrate a big birthday!! It's a very very You piece. I love that it's not #EverydayCartier (let's pretend that #EverydayCartier is a #Thing) ::)

I kind of... Really really love the look of the plain ribbed bangle with just the one visible nut... The emptiness really works somehow... You're rockin' it!!

Thanks sweet @yssie . I could not style you. I am not worthy...:praise: Your inimitable style inspires me to let my weird and rebellious side show itself. Thank you for always being open to my odd combinations. I can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve next. They will be STUNNERS for sure.:appl:

Thank you @SandyK. I second guessed myself so many times about this piece. But once I put it on, it felt just right. So I'm glad I eventually committed. :)

Thank you so much @Rubies-R-Me. I never even thought to look up what Ecrou meant. So it means “nut”. Lol! How literal! So appropriate for a nut that buys a “nut” bracelet. :lol:

It's funny! I actually learned a lot of French mostly from Cartier.
Juste un Clou.. "just a nail"
Perruque is a line of Cartier ring and necklaces that looks like a mop and it translates to "wig"
Agrafe means "clip" and the necklaces and bracelets from that collection have a very distinctive clasp that looks like a clip.
Etincelle means "spark" and it's their line of sparkly diamond eternity bands.
Pluie means "rain" and it's a ring that Cartier makes with teardropo shaped diamonds.
And from VCA I learned that Cadenas means "padlock" and their line of Cadenas watches looks like a padlock.
I feel like a very dedicated language/jewelry student! =)2

Had fun at Cartier today. I had been eyeing the Cartier Trinity from the moment I saw it. While I was there, I tried on a few other things. I have barely tried on any rose gold, I am surprised at how much I fell for it!

Cartier Trinity, Small and Classic (I liked the Small on my middle/index finger) - I went up 3 whole sizes (Euro sizes) which shocked me! So 3/4 sizes larger than my normal size in US. Their recommendation on their site to size down is baffling

Small. :kiss2:

Leger XS and S, white gold and rose gold, then XS and S in rose gold

IMG-8493.jpg


Love cuff white gold and rose gold
unplated white gold really is not for me...love the RG though! But I found it somewhat uncomfortable

Love bangle - I loved these two. I don't know which is my favorite!!! Much more comfortable than the cuff in my opinion. One day...

Totally agree iwth you on the sizing of the trinity ring. I have to size up or I get serious finger muffin top. Love the YG and RG on you.
