TrueFacet Holiday Shops Sale

The Cartier brand boasts a colorful and illustrious history that is reflected in its many beautiful collections. Designers like Aldo Cipullo and Jean Toussaint made their respective indelible marks on the Cartier brand and created designs that are still in circulation today. To navigate Cartier’s extensive collections, each of which bearing their own kind of spirit, we’ve put together this “cheat sheet” to guide you towards the best Cartier purchase for you, based on the brand’s most popular products.

Cartier Love Bracelet 


The Love Bracelet is perhaps the most popular Cartier creation in the market. Its simplistic design inspired by screw heads and its romantic backstory will appeal to those who have a penchant for charming, clean-cut pieces.

Cartier Juste un Clou Bracelet

The Juste un Clou bracelet’s uncomplicated design contributes to its appeal. Inspired by the shape of construction nails, this piece has a downtown edge that gives it a grittier sense of character without sacrificing Cartier’s signature luxurious touch.

Cartier Trinity Ring

Stackable rings may be in right now, but the Trinity Ring brings the concept to a whole new level. This ring features three thin interlocked bands that overlap to create a single ring. The ring’s design puts an informal spin on the traditional wedding ring stack and puts it in the realm of contemporary art, perfect for those who enjoy abstract artwork and versatile jewelry.

Cartier Tank Francaise Watch


Fans of the late Princess Diana will recognize this watch, as she famously wore it to many of her charity events and functions. The Tank Francaise’s classic square face is the perfect minimalist touch to a no-nonsense wardrobe.

Cartier Tank Anglaise Watch

The Anglaise is the Tank Francaise’s younger, softer sister: with its rounded square case, large and easy-to-read face, and updated crown design, the watch puts a contemporary spin on its rigid, Art Deco-inspired roots.

Cartier Ballon Bleu Watch

The Ballon Bleu is a beautiful watch with a classic face featuring bold Roman numerals and a rounded case with a protector for the gemstone-embedded crown. Those seeking a classic design with a contemporary streak will love this timepiece.

Cartier Roadster Watch

The Roadster Watch is the more masculine counterpart to the Ballon Bleu. The tonneu-shaped case calls back to the classic watches of the 1950s and ‘60s, and the protruding crown and pushers, which challenge the shape of the case, contribute to the watch’s bold design. This timepiece is perfect for someone who prefers a good mix of the unconventional and the timeless in their wardrobe. 

Cartier Santos Watch

The Santos watch is more traditionally masculine. Its rounded rectangular face comes in at a striking 51 mm, which is especially large, even for a men’s watch. Its size is complemented by the simple face and clean Roman numerals. This versatile watch can appeal to someone who appreciates a good, traditional timepiece.
