The original design from Aldo Cipullo, who focused on modern interpretations of ancient designs and legends, in this case a chastity belt, featured a two-piece bracelet that bolted around the wrist that came with a screwdriver to take it apart. In the ensuing decades, the design was re-imagined in keeping with the times, with newer versions featuring two interlocking circles featuring the classic bolts and no need for a screwdriver. Today there are 42 styles — from the celebrity favorite silk-banded pink gold LOVECHARITY Bracelet to benefit UNICEF all the way up to the $199,000 Love Cuff. The brand’s philanthropic division, the Cartier Charitable Foundation, supports non-profits working to improve the lives of the most vulnerable in the world’s least-developed regions; Cartier.com.
C Seed changed television viewing forever with their $1.5 million, 301-inch folding and vanishing model. They’re back with the N1 for an affordable (relatively speaking!) yet equally magnificent alternative starting at $190,000.
