Today, I am reviewing Cartier‘s signature Juste un Clou bracelet featuring a modern,  daring design from one of the classic jewellery houses. Here is my honest review of this bracelet.

Cartier’s signature nail bracelet in 18 karat gold has an innovative and unisex design, where simplicity and clean lines are key. Juste Un Clou collection is a fun collection of bracelets, rings and necklaces, aimed at the fashion conscious, cash-rich youth. In my eyes, the unconventional “bent nail” design is somewhat of a paradox for one of the oldest and most revered jewellery houses in the world.

The design of Just Un Clou bracelet is very durable, making this the perfect piece to wear on an everyday basis, with no need to take it off at night nor in the shower. The thickness of the bangle makes it practically unbreakable: perfect, if you tend to be a little clumsy… This piece also has a very secure clasp mechanism that only opens with strong downward pressure, making it impossible for bracelet just to open and fall off your wrist when you are out and about.

Personally, I like the plain bracelet from the whole Juste Un Clou collection. Pieces encrusted with diamonds would look a little kitsch when worn! Regardless of the seemingly minimalist design, the bracelet is a statement piece in its own right: there is not need to accompany it with other jewellery and no need to dress up for it. We think it looks best with a plain white t-shirt and jeans!

Cartier Juste Un Clou Bracelet

Overall, Juste Un Clou bracelet is the entry point into the world of ultimate luxury of Cartier. It the perfect piece for you if you are looking for a branded, easily recognisable piece of jewellery, which still has a fun edge to it.
