It’s Just a Nail – It’s Just CartierJune 4, 2012
While Cartier may typically be a brand associated with watches, it is also commonly recognized as a world class jeweler. The typically female focused brand could even be said to play a part in setting the bar for high end jewelry, since it is certainly out of the price range of all but the upper-class.
After such a prestigious introduction, it may surprise you to learn that one of the French jeweler’s newest creations is the Juste Un Clou collection, otherwise translated as Just a Nail…And that’s what it is, literally. The entire collection is inspired by the simple idea of a wrapped nail-design made from precious metals and generally not set with diamonds. What’s more? The Juste Un Clou collection is actually released as a unisex collection. Obviously, there are plenty of pieces in the collection solely suited for women, but men can equally enjoy several of the extra large bracelets in either white gold or silver… What better way to say, “I’m as tough as a nail” than to wear a precious one wrapped around your wrist?
On the whole the idea behind Juste Un Clou is at the very least intriguing, and once you catch a glimpse of the pieces in this collection you will see what simple execution looks like at its best, and why Cartier remains as a world standard for high end jewelry.
