“Just a nail” it's the latest spring release from famed French high-jewelry house Cartier. A simple elegant nail launches April 13 at select Cartier Boutiques.
Cartier’s first nail bracelet was created in the 1970s by in house designer Aldo Cipullo, also the mastermind behind the beloved Cartier Love bracelet.
The Cartier Juste un Clou collection launch will be commemorated with an exhibition of Cipullo’s work at the Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion in New York City through May 8.
It's a modern accessorie, while remaining true to the essence of the house.
And in my opinion this fabulous collection will be the Love bracelet of our generation.
The collection is comprised of bracelets and rings in 18k yellow, rose and white gold with and without pave diamonds.
The renowned jewelry designer Aldo Cipullo. He began his apprenticeship in Italy, his home country, before moving to the States where he worked for David Webb and Tiffany.
He continued his career with Cartier, refining and simplifying his design sensibilities.
In 1969, he created what seemed like a fairly simple gold bracelet. Inspired by the chastity belt, he called his design the love bracelet and suggested that couples buy two, which they
would exchange, like rings.
Cartier initially offered the bracelet exclusively to famous couples such as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Nancy and Frank Sinatra. The love bracelet became so popular it is still a best seller at Cartier.
And I hope the "Juste un Clou" collection will become so popular like the Love Bracelet...so classic and so chic for everyone who is going to wear this exquisite collection.
Kisses, have a nice weekend and see you next week!
