Cartier Nails It
The French house’s reissue of the utilitarian-chic Juste Un Clou jewelry line revisits Cartier’s swinging ‘70s era.

Jason Wu, Charlotte Casiraghi, Arizona Muse, Beyonce, Jay-Z and more turned out to fete Cartier’s new hardware.
Move over Love Bracelet, Cartier has a new, well new/old piece of arm candy from the same designer. Cartier has delved into the archives of its former designer Aldo Cipullo and reissued his famed, circa 1971 bent-nail jewelry collection. Entitled “Juste Un Clou” (translation: Just A Nail), the uni-sex collection features bent-nail bracelets and rings in white and rose gold for a hard-edged type of glamour. You can opt for plain gold pieces or get them embellished with diamonds if you like your hardware a little more haute.
The Juste Un Clou pieces range from $2,175 to $34,650 and are available at select Cartier boutiques, 212.753.0111 or www.justeunclou.cartier.com
