Trinity de Cartier
The Cartier Trinity Ring is a signature design of the world renowned Parisian jewellery company (1847 - Present). It was first created in 1924 by Louis Cartier. The beautiful interlocking white, yellow and pink gold bands have since gone on to inspire many other Cartier pieces, including bangles and necklaces, incorporating the same basic interlocking design.
The ring was adopted by the French artist and filmmaker Jean Cocteau and has been favoured by many other high profile people. At the time, the simplicity of the design was in juxtaposition to the more outlandish Flapper aesthetic.
The three bands of the Trinity design are said to represent whatever the wearer chooses but 'Fidelity, Friendship and Love.' is one popular interpretation.
