Lock It Up

I LOVE the classic Cartier "Love" Bracelet. I've lusted after one for years. The Love Bracelet was first created for Cartier in 1969. The bracelet is supposedly a reference to medieval chastity belts; it can be unlocked with a tiny screwdriver that comes with each bracelet. The thought is that the person giving the bracelet would keep the key. It's such a simple piece, but I love the look and the thought behind it, and the tiny screwdriver is adorable. Cartier has started making variations of the original over the years, they now have rose gold and platinum options (if you have an extra 12k definitely go for platinum).
