Love Is All You Need….but a Cartier Love Bracelet would be nice, too.

Some say love is all one needs and, while this is fundamentally true, there are some accouterments that a bride ought to consider. How about a fabulous accessory symbolic of your love that can be worn time and time again, not just on the wedding day? Well, look no further than the Cartier Love Bracelet.

This luxurious bracelet has been around since the 1970s, only recently gaining more mainstream

recognition due to celebrity endorsements and huge advertising campaigns. Blending high fashion with an unconventional and industrial flair, this show-stopping bangle is meant to be worn as a keepsake as well as a treasured piece of jewelry.

Literally designed after the concept of chastity belts, it was crafted with both the past and the present in mind. While the belts were emblematic of a husband’s determination to keep his wife faithful during his absence, the Love Bracelet takes a much more modern, tongue-in-cheek approach to this custom by operating with the same function in a more playful way. The bracelet comes with a tiny screwdriver to bolt it onto the wrist, meant to signify a committed relationship. It can also be seen as an iconic symbol of “fusional love,” for it is fastened to the wrist and never meant to be taken off. Its signature emblem disguises the real locations of the connecting screws…clever, no?

The Cartier Love Bracelet comes in styles for every taste. pinkG admits to being partial to the 18 carat white gold with diamonds, a true piece of art dangling from a dainty wrist. But the classic, sleek 18 carat yellow gold bracelet is just as elegant and fashionable. This piece of jewelry helps capture the unique bond between the giver and the receiver, so wear it as a badge of honor. It is a perfect accessory to don at one of the many events which surround the wedding. Dazzle at the bridal shower by pairing this with a Milly dress, or ditch the silly tiaras and boas at the bachelorette party and let a flash of the wrist show you’re off the market. And don’t underestimate the stunning impact this would make at the rehearsal dinner.

Perhaps your honey will buy it for you, but you can just as easily buy one for yourself, always recognizing and driving home the point that you are your own unique individual. This bracelet is meant to be worn with confidence, especially if purchased for oneself. Not just anyone can take it off you, so the person to whom you entrust that screwdriver will know just how special your love is. So forget the engagement rings – get thee a Love Bracelet.
