It requires a close inspection to discover that this is not just the magnificent bracelet that first meets the eye. A better look reveals a small watch face discreetly set into one of the bracelet’s jewel-encrusted links. The Cartier Libre is fully reversible with an elasticated strap that allows it to be turned over and worn as either a watch or a bracelet. Inspired by Hollywood glamour and the jewellery of actress Gloria Swanson, it also features a colour palette reflecting Cartier’s heritage. It’s available in three versions, but we have our eye on the rose gold with black spinels, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds.
