One of Cartier’s most iconic creations gets a sleek and slim update.
Keeping up with the times, more specifically a time that emphasises distinctiveness and personal style, Cartier has launched a slimmer, flexible version of its Juste un Clou bracelet. The new version allows the freedom to stack it up for your very own, unique touch.
The Juste un Clou, which literally translates to ‘Just a nail’, was a creation by jewellery designer Aldo Cipullo in 1971. A self-proclaimed lover for all things nuts, bolts and screws, he took inspiration from the humble nail, and turned it into an elegant, attractive, desirable piece of jewellery that continues to be loved by both men and women half a decade later. The Juste un Clou, like its older sister the Love bracelet (also a Cipullo creation), was all about breaking traditions and boundaries — a concept that is running particularly strong today, when unitarian-inspired designs are flooding the fashion runways.
The modernised Juste un Clou bracelets are available in small, classic or large sizes, and in yellow gold, pink gold and white gold. There is also one that is paved all over with diamonds, for those who fancy something that really dazzles. They can be worn as a stand-alone piece, or stacked together for a more layered look. You can even wear it with the Love bracelets to give your look a fashionable edge, or something from other brands that you fancy — nothing is off-limits, it’s all up to you.
Visit your nearest Cartier stores or cartier.com for more information on the collection, and to discover a range of bespoke customisation services from engraving to red box embossing to give your Juste un Clou bracelets a truly personalised touch.
