The Love bracelet is a famous piece of jewelry for Cartier designed in 1969 by Aldo Cipullo. The bracelet quickly became popular for its intentional resemblance in function to medieval chastity belts.
Unlike traditional bracelets, which are either wide enough to slip them over the hand onto the wrist or can readily be opened in order to put them on, the Love bracelet is designed to be opened only using a special screwdriver that is supplied with every bracelet. The screwdriver is also available in the form of a necklace, allowing the bracelet to be “locked” onto one person while the “key” is kept around the neck of another as a symbol for their commitment to their relationship.
The screwdriver does not act as a secure key, however. The Love bracelet can actually be opened with any standard slotted screwdriver.
Designed by Mai Lamore, the heels are 18 karat gold and the silk petals are hand-dyed. The playful bee is made of gold, onyx and agate. The cost: $27,945.
