US$17,605.83

About

A classic vintage Cartier Trinity bangle set in 18k yellow, rose and white gold, circa 2000. The bracelet is composed of three interlinked 8.5-millimetre bangles that are designed to roll with ease on the wrist. The trinity bangles come in three different widths, this bangle is the largest of the three (being 8.5). The colour difference between each bangle is subtle yet beautiful and the trinity design is a perfect piece of jewelry to wear for every day. The bracelet is signed and hallmarked on the inside of the rose gold bangle. The hallmarks read Cartier, 750 (for 18k gold), with the serial number GQ8285, MD (for medium size). Because the bangle is the older trinity bangle design it is not marked with the modern Cartier sizing system. The bracelet measure 7 centimetres in diameter and from the inside has a circumference of 20 centimetres (medium size). There is a gross weight of 104.8 grams. The bangle is accompanied with its original box. A valuation for insurance and authenticity will be provided.

About the Design

Trinity Bracelet

Designed by Cartier
The famed French poet, novelist, artist and filmmaker Jean Cocteau was often photographed wearing two distinctive rings on his pinkie finger: tri-bands of overlapping hoops. Characterized by a Saturnian form involving three movable bands, the Trinity ring was designed in 1924 by Cocteau’s friend Louis Cartier (1875–1942), documented heartbreaker and grandson of Louis-François Cartier, who founded the renowned French luxury house. Cartier soon afterward debuted the distinctive “Trinity de Cartier” design to consumers, which, inspired by the ring, included the Trinity bracelet, a still-popular accessory in its classic simplicity for both men and women. Notably, the Trinity bracelet was understated in its dearth of embellishments when it was introduced, and the collection offered an alternative to the Art Deco decadence that was then so pervasive in jewelry, including at Cartier. Each of the Trinity bracelet’s interlaced loops were a different color, with yellow, white and pink 18-karat gold representing the entwining of fidelity, friendship and love. The three materials can also be interpreted as the stages of a relationship — from friendship to love’s passion and, finally, to the loyalty of fidelity. The Trinity design referenced a deep history of iconography related to close bonds, such as the “triquetra,” or “trinity knot,” a traditional symbol consisting of three interconnected leaves. The trinity knot was adopted long ago by the Celts and is incorporated frequently in Irish jewelry. A model photographed for Vogue in 1925 donned a Trinity bracelet, while the image’s accompanying text celebrated jewelry that its editors deemed “amazingly chic and very moderate in price,” especially compared to Cartier’s elaborate diamond confections. Like the ring, the Trinity bracelet reflects Cartier’s technical skill in the way its three bands of precious metal elegantly overlap and rest smoothly on the skin like an embrace. The Trinity collection was not the only collaboration between Cocteau and Cartier: When Belle weeps in Cocteau’s 1946 film Beauty and the Beast, her tears become diamonds, which were provided by Cartier during production. The luxury house paid tribute to Cocteau with the Trinity Sauvage bracelet, which incorporated a band with leopard spots that referenced the wallpaper in the study of the filmmaker’s Milly-la-Forêt home. There have been many variations over the years — featuring diamonds, ceramic, pearls and more — and all maintain the harmonious balance that makes the Trinity designs timeless. Almost a century after Cartier designed the ring for his friend, the Trinity bracelet endures as a classic expression of everlasting friendship and love.
