why I love it: The Love bracelet is such a staple it can literally go with anything, which is good because you screw it on to your arm. It's the perfect elegant standalone for every day or a special occasion, and it looks great with an arm party. It's such a classic and the simple, feminine with an edge look the bracelet has is something I (can only right now) dream of adding to my repertoire someday. I want it in yellow gold (but it also comes in white and rose gold) so it can be a wear-forever deal. I love mixing metals and it's hard to beat Cartier's yellow gold, especially when you're donning an arm party.
When the Juste Un Clou bracelet was released last year, I couldn't get over how perfect it was. The design is so obvious, yet it would be hard to execute it as perfectly as Cartier did. Unlike the Love bracelet, it's not for everyone and it's not for everywhere, but it comes close. It adds a bit of elegant toughness to any outfit and, like the Love bracelet, fits perfectly into an arm party. It's so understated yet well thought out that it makes you take a second look. Wearing it alone will get that attention but amongst other bracelets the nail detail will add the perfect simple irony to the rest of your wrist adornments.
The two are alike in their genius simplicity, but one packs a little more versatility and less trendiness into its design. It's probably good I can't get either, because if I had to choose one, I'm not sure which way I'd go!
where to get it: Cartier; Love $5,575 and Juste Un Clou $6,575
