Cartier Love Bracelet OLD vs NEW

Cartier’s new style Love bangle debuted in 2011 and is starting to make its way into the used Love bracelet market. It typically takes a few months to a year before we start purchasing a new style of designer jewelry or new watch from customers who want to sell Cartier. They typically like to enjoy it themselves for at least a few months!

The new Love bangle through presents an interesting challenge to customers who want to buy a Love bangle on eBay or our website though. Love bangles are so heavily replicated that it’s important to do your research before buying to ensure that what you’re buying is an authentic Cartier bracelet. When a new style changes what an authentic Love bangle really looks like, it’s time for us to continue our quest for customer education.

Cartier Love Bracelet New Screw System

We compared one of our older style rose gold Love bangles to a new style yellow gold Love bangle so you can see the small differences between the two. Where the old style’s screws come completely out, the new style’s screws only come out of the bracelet partially. This prevents loss of the tiny screws if you ever take off your bracelet.

New Cartier Bracelet Screw Back

The older model also has a different screw back. You can see that it’s slightly more dome-shaped compared to the cylinder shaped backs on the new model from the side. When looking at them closely, the old one looks like a bullseye where the new one looks like a smile.

From the front, the two bracelets are nearly identical – same Love insignias, same smooth, crisp edges, but a slight difference where the clasp meets the rest of the bracelet and how the screw’s Love motif blends into the rest of the bracelet.

    Cartier recently lowered the prices of their Love bangles (a plain t yellow is now $6,300 USD plus sales tax.) So we’re in the process of lowering our prices too. The baseline for our new price structure will likely put a used Love bracelet in t with no diamonds at $5,500 USD.
