Nuts and bolts

October 2, 2017

I love to know the myths and legends behind iconic fashion items like a Birkin bag or a Rolex watch. This morning, I stumbled upon these little known facts about the Cartier Love Bracelet. “When the bracelet was first launched, Cartier gave pairs of them to some of the most famous couples of the 20th century including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Ali MacGraw and Steve McQueen, and Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti.” And did you know that some hospitals keep Cartier screwdrivers on hand in case they need to remove the pieces from patients in an emergency? Classic. Of course, there’s always room to individualize the bangle with a stack of quirky arm candy. I kind of like this combination of tennis bracelets and high wattage gold leaf. I also like it as is, simple and chic.
