White gold Cartier Love Bracelet

Can you believe the Cartier Love Bracelet is over 40 years old?  It was invented in 1969 by Aldo Cipullo and has remained a staple for the Cartier brand ever since.   It is spelled LVe with a horizontal line through the O to resemble the design of the bracelet.  Earlier bracelets were actually gold plated but today, you can get one in white, yellow, or pink solid gold.  The Love jewelry line has expanded to include necklaces, rings, and earrings as well.  They all features the O with the line through the middle screw design.  The Cartier Love Bracelet Boca Raton is the most recognizable bracelet in the world.

What makes the Love bracelet different from other bangles is the locking mechanism.  Most bangles are either wide enough to slip over the wrist or have a standard locking mechanism that slides in and out.  But the Love bracelet must be screwed on and off using a special screwdriver that comes with the bracelet.  While it is said that only a Cartier screw driver can unlock the bracelet, you can actually use any flat head screw driver as long as it fits in the groove.  The significance of the screw is that once the bracelet is on it should never have to come off.  It symbolizes the love between two people.

The Cartier Love bracelet is in such high demand that its price keeps climbing.  It costs $7,100 for the white gold version and $6,800 for the yellow and pink gold versions.  That’s a $500 increase from a year ago.  When you think about how much gold is actually in the bracelet those prices seem very high.  But since the style is so popular and the demand is so great they can almost charge whatever they want.  And it’s not uncommon to see men or women wearing multiple Love bracelets at the same time.  Having one of each color on your wrist will run you over $20,000.  Maybe you can get a discount if you buy all three ;).   And if you start looking at the ones with pave diamonds you are talking about $30,000 plus.

The Cartier Love Bracelet Boca Raton has remained popular over 40 years.  You can see celebrities like Kim Kardashian and her family wearing these almost daily.  It looks like Cartier has struck gold with their Love bracelet.
