According to Google, a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol or as worthy of veneration is considered an icon. And in the case of Cartier, there are icons aplenty in the 169-year-old luxury jewellery and timepiece house, from its panther to the Santos 100, and then there is the jewellery. From the Trinity de Cartier to LOVE, each is just more desirable than the last, but the subject of today’s post is focused on another icon, the Juste un Clou.
Perhaps the most unexpected of icons, neither symbolic like LOVE or meaningful like Trinity de Cartier, you could even call it the bad boy of the House, the design first conceived by Aldo Cipullo for Cartier New York (yes, it was 3 separate houses back then, with the other two in Paris and London) back in the 70s. Unexpected because at its very core, the Juste un Clou is also a nail, albeit a nail that was reinterpreted as a piece of fine jewellery that you’ll find today at Cartier in the form of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings.
A rhythmic spiral and a bold statement, this is a piece you wear to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Available in a delectable array of golds for your picking (Rose, Yellow or White Gold), the Juste en Clou starts from SGD3150 in Singapore for the rings, and upwards of a hundred thousand and more for those bracelets that come paved with diamonds. You just need to decide on the kind of statement you want to make.
