A piece of jewellery is a simple and understated way to pull your look into an elegant one. Some of the most common pieces are Cartier’s Love Bracelet and VCA’s Alhambra series. They are so popular that they hold most of their value on the resale market. However, to find one that is more lowkey but still equally strong in holding their value could be challenging.
Here are some pieces that suit both criteria:
1. Cartier’s Juste Un Clou
Coming from the same house as its Love Bracelet’s counterpart, Juste Un Clou is known to be able to retain its value equally. However, their iconic, nail-like design that wrapped around your wrists is way more simple than a Love Bracelet, that it won’t be as recognisable. The series comes in different varieties and price ranges.
2. Hermes’ Chaine d’Ancre Punk
The Parisian brand might be more famous for its leatherworks. However, their fine jewellery sections have similar levels of quality. Despite the high media exposure that Hermes’ has on social media, the brand is still known for its ability to create subtle luxury pieces, and this bracelet is one example.
3. Chaumet’s Jeux de Liens
While Chaumet might not be as famous as the previous brands mentioned in this list, it definitely has the same historical value. Their Jeux de Liens collections have been around for almost as long as the Love Bracelet. Moreover, the Liens designs have been a classic for the house.
4. Tiffany & Co.’s Return to Tiffany Love Bugs
Tiffany&Co might be the most famous brand on the list as it has been featured in several movies, including the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. That’s why the pieces have a strong retain value. However, while their classic Return to Tiffany series has been iconic for decades, their Love Bug specials are on the understated spectrum.
