The Cartier Love bracelet is an iconic bracelet symbolising eternal love. It was first designed in 1969 by Aldo Cipullo and since then has become much loved by celebrities and fashionistas alike.
This bracelet is unlike other bracelets. It comprises of two segments which are secured together with two screws, and as you can imagine, in order to wear this Love bracelet, one has to unscrew the bangle – and screw it back on. But not to worry, thankfully, Cartier does supply a mini screwdriver with each bangle. Whoop whoop!
We believe the idea is that when gifted a cartier love bracelet, one is being “locked into love”. And if you ask us, we think the screwdriver should be mysteriously lost so that one never gets “unlocked out of love”. This probably wouldn’t work though as the bangle can be opened by any screwdriver. So please ignore us and carry on reading
Still, it makes us wonder how difficult it must be to wear this bracelet. What if you are running late for a party and need to screw it on (and in the process, lose a screw)? What if your boyfriend has just gifted you this bangle (can we steal your boyfriend please) and it is such a romantic moment, but he cannot unscrew the bracelet and put it on your hand? What if you are at the airport and need to take off the bangles and can’t find a screwdriver? Oh the things we do for love!
This has become such a hot trend (clearly no one thinks like us, so once again, please ignore us and carry on reading) that it has been spotted over 200 times on various celebrities.
On Jennifer Aniston:
On Angelina Jolie
On Kanye West
On Kirsten Stewart
On Eva Mendes
On Hilary Duff
On Lady Gaga
On Lindsay Lohan
And the list goes on and on.. Initially, the Love Screw bracelet probably signified love between a couple, however, these days it is gifted from parents to children, given as a gift to friends or even gifted to oneself (if you can afford it). It does cost £4,000 and can be found on the official cartier website here: http://www.cartier.co.uk/collections/jewellery/categories/bracelets/love-bracelets
But most of us don’t usually tend to carry around that sort of pocket money, and there have been cartier inspired bracelets on the markets – so we can feel a little bit loved too, right?
