Behind the Cartier Love Bracelet

The Cartier LOVE bracelet is an iconic staple today, but you might not know the story behind the most sought after piece of jewelry. In 1970, Cartier designer Aldo Cipullo partnered with Charles Revson, the founder of Revlon Cosmetics, to create a special edition LOVE bracelet. This early version was 18K gold plated while today's bracelets are solid gold. The company gifted bracelets to famous couples of the time like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, creating an early celebrity culture around the LOVE bracelet.

After Jillian and I decided we wanted to start offering the LOVE bracelet from the 1970's in our Vintage Designer Jewelry collection, we began the task of tracking down a few styles from estates and refurbishing them. These pretties photographed above sold fast, but we are busy finding more!
