Think of Juste un Clou and their solid gold nail bracelets in a variety of golds (Pink, White and Yellow) is probably the first thing that comes to mind. It is also probably the most Instagrammed piece of jewellery from this collection (because #wristparty FTW), but do you know that the collection is much more than just bracelets? In fact, the collection also includes earrings, necklaces and rings, and not only that, but some pieces come adorned with diamonds, diamonds and even more diamonds.
This April, the icon that is Juste un Clou just(e) got upsized. And by upsized, boy did it get really big. While previous interpretations of Juste un Clou’s necklaces were pretty much just a small nail dangling off a long chain, this time around, the nail has literally become the whole necklace. Which is an engineering marvel of sorts if you think about it, since it has to be ‘opened’ for one to wear it, and yet still sit ever so beautifully on the collarbone when it’s ‘closed’.
Simply known as the Juste un Clou Torque necklace, it comes in a variety of metals and sizes. And by sizes, it refers to the thickness of the necklace, the larger the size, the thicker the necklace. For example, there is the Small in Yellow Gold for those who prefer something more understated. Then there are 3 more in Large (i.e. thick) models that come in Pink, White and Yellow golds, with the Pink and Yellow ones adorned only with diamonds at its tips while the third in White gold comes fully paved with the most brilliant of stones.
Available from Cartier boutiques from April 2017, it is safe to say that Aldo Cipullo’s legacy is still well and truly alive with the French luxury jeweller, and with Cartier releasing these new renditions of their most iconic piece of jewellery that continually pushes the boundaries, you could say they’ve really nailed it with this one.
