Cartier Juste Un Clou: Introducing the new Torque nail necklace

Seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary: The French brand brings us an update that brings a new meaning to #nailedit

Cartier is one jewellery house that has cemented its place in history as a creator of fine designs that one can recognise at first glance. From the panther that was loved by the likes of the Duchess of Windsor to the love bracelet that is lauded as a symbol of wealth and romance, you can never go wrong with something by the house that Louis-François Cartier built.

This season we fall head over heels, once again, with Cartier as it reveals the Juste Un Clou Torque that now joins the Juste Un Clou collection. Made of a single nail, the design is simple yet oh-so-powerful in the statement it makes. Even the name of the collection, which translates to ‘Just a nail’ is as straight to the point as the design itself.

Who knew that when Aldo Cipullo first appropriated the humble utilitarian object in the 1970s, he would, in fact, be creating a style that is timeless? Crafted during a time when the anti-conformist mindset was shared by many, the emergence of the bracelet that went against the norm must have been a welcome change for those who took to the Juste Un Clou. In 2017, the brand adds a necklace to the range and completes the accessory range.

The Juste Un Clou Torque range offers the fashionable rebel various ways to don the statement piece to suit their individual style. For those looking to own an accessory that moves seamlessly from day to night, we suggest investing in the yellow, white or pink gold variations. While simplicity is key, it never hurts to add a bit of sparkle to your life and the Juste Un Clou Torque paved with diamonds does the trick perfectly.
