French Fairytale: Cartier Love Bracelet


Cartier Love Bracelet

The Love Bracelet was designed in 1969 by Aldo Cipullo for the French jeweler Cartier. The design was inspired by the medieval practice of warriors “locking up” their wives using chasity belts prior to battle, to preserve the fidelity of their marriage. From this, Cipullo created a two-piece bracelet that had to be bolted together to encircle the wrist.

The Love Bracelet is designed to be opened using only the supplied screwdriver. This allows the bracelet to be “locked” onto one person while the “key” is kept by another as a symbol for their commitment together.

When this product was first launched Cartier regulation stated, no one was permitted to purchase the Love Bracelet for their own wrist. Entering it’s 42nd year, with a growth in popularity, regulation has changed.

Cartier’s Love Bracelet has decorated the wrists of many famous celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Nancy and Frank Sinatra and Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon. Today, the Cartier Love Bracelet remains the world’s most celebrated and coveted wrist ornament.
