THE LOWDOWN: The combination of two wonderful things–jewelry and charity.
The Love Bracelets from Cartier are not only beautiful, but are hip and trendy right now. Cartier had some good marketing for these pieces–I’ve seen the ad for them in almost every fashion magazine. On top of that, a celebrity party was held in its honor, with some of the top celebrities becoming ambassadors with their own cord color.
NOT SO GOOD: Each bracelet sells for around $475, with $100 going to charity. A little too expensive if you ask me, for a silk cord and an 18k gold mini “Love” ring. I would rather spend that kind of money on a good lobster dinner and some tiny diamond studs. I think I will be waiting for them to hit eBay…
