they are both very nice.

i do favor the cartier trinity alot more

i have always loved the cartier trinity. so much so, that mr. big fat facets and i chose them as our wedding rings. i am biased towards the trinity

i understand the origin of the 3 interlocking ring is russian. also known as a russian wedding ring. But cartier, being cartier, made them known the world over.

im sure they will both look lovely on you

does the symbolism of either appeal to you more than the other??

Good question. I prefer the symbolism of the trinity necklace. My husband and I have been together over twenty years (married 18 years) and I like the idea of celebrating our longevity with the trinity necklace.

I like the symbolism of strength and endurance with the Atlas pendant, but I think the Trinity wins on symbolism. Thanks!

Did you notice if the trinity ring runs smaller than your normal size? I tried on the small trinity ring at the Chicago store and I was a size 48 (or 4 1/2) but I always wear a size 5 in every other ring.

I don't believe they run smaller, per se ... but they are not "fit" like the conventional single band rings. Cartier official website has a page all about it:


they recommend to go down, 2 sizes, in one's usual size.

i also want to point out that when mr. big fat facets and i outgrew our rings as we married at ages 20 and 21. we brought out rings into cartier and they were very reluctant to the point of refusal, to resize for us. the hallmark & european size are stamped into the inner surface of the pink gold ring. that's the, unfortunate, down side of the rings.

i suppose i could have, and still could get a non cartier bench to resize. but i havent chosen to go that way

This is very helpful. Thanks so much!

I like both but the Trinity would be so flexible for matching other colours of gold together and it’s so classic.

Thanks, I'm definitely leaning toward(s) the Trinity. Now I'm wondering if I should get the matching bracelet or ring while I'm at it. How much is too much? :D

When you get to Mr T level you might stop. @astaeria posted her and her new husband’s Trinity rings and I love how they work with different styles of other jewelry too. Can’t go wrong with a matching piece.

Thanks, this is so helpful. I like how she pairs it with her engagement ring. I think I also saw a Trinity ring in the RING FAMILY ON ONE HAND thread. I will have to go back and look.

P.S. Mr T level ... love it :lol-2::lol-2:

i didn't specify in my earlier posts. but we got the classic size. i understand that the "special" cartier sizing concern is only reserved for the classic and the thick trinity rings.

i believe they also have trinity earrings, too. in addition to rings, bracelets and pendants

have fun shopping!

Bumping an old thread, did you ever pick? I liked the trinity a LOT but went with a lower cost necklace from Blue Nile that has interlocking rings in tricolor metal. If you’re still looking! 2591BC27-7EFF-4D45-BE18-7051DC0B62AE.jpeg

Your post is so timely! I just bought the interlocking necklace from BN in white gold. I got the trinity bracelet from Cartier, and I love it.

Your necklace is beautiful!

Thank you! I love the entire Trinity line at Cartier I’m sure it’s gorgeous! I thought of your post today we were looking for similar things last fall!

I was just reading your thread about the exquisite ring in your avatar earlier today. Then you commented on my thread. What a lovely coincidence! I'm including a few shots of my BN necklace.

I tried on the Atlas and I didn't like how the circle pendant kept flipping on my neck so that it was standing on edge half the time.

My only hesitation with the trinity is that I think the double strands might get twisted and bother me, but I love my trinity bracelet. I will post pictures soon. I think I'm going to take the plunge and order the trinity necklace next month.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Matching Trinity necklace. I chose this version instead of the double strand because the motif is larger, and it moves freely on the chain, which I prefer to a fixed pendant. It's a great everyday necklace.

I have been curious about these; is the ring removable? Is it just like a tiny trinity ring on a chain? Bc I saw on ebay a trinity ring that was a really small size; like a 3, and I was thinking - "I wonder if I could put that on a chain and it would be like the necklace". :lol: Bc even preloved necklaces are so pricey. I'm glad you guys posted the BN one too; I had seen that before and thought about it so it's nice to see pics.

Yes, the ring is removable. It's smaller than a size 3, which is the size I wear on my pinkie. Here are a few pictures.

Forgot to say that I would totally get a trinity ring and wear it on a chain. I'm thinking about getting the classic trinity ring, but rose gold doesn't do well with hand sanitizer, and I'm addicted to the stuff now. If I get the ring for Christmas, I would probably wear it on a chain and layer it with my trinity necklace until I can break my hand-sanitizer addiction.

Well the necklace looks almost like the band width is a Trinity XS. Would you say that’s the case? Or is it thicker bands like the Trinity classic? If I find a small preloved I would totally do that. There are some on eBay but none with papers. When I bought my Trinity pre-loved it had the certificate and even the original receipt. There’s so many fakes out there I would be nervous of spending a lot of money for one that wasn’t legit.

The bands on the trinity necklace are closer in size to the XS than the classic. But the shape is more like a shrunken classic.

If I recall correctly, the XS bands are rounded (like a tube in the shape of a circle) and they felt like titanium, an almost plastic feeling. The bands on the trinity necklace are shaped more like a comfit-fit band. That's how I think the classic ring is shaped.
