The Trinity was designed by Louis Cartier in 1924 at the request of French artist, novelist, poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau who wanted a ‘three gold rolling ring’. His simple idea stuck and the three band design is one of Cartier’s most emblematic jewels. Now, 88 years later, Cartier revamped its Trinity Collection just for Christmas by showing unsurpassed power of pearls.
Freshwater pearls in shades of white, grey, violet and orange as well as blonde pearls from the South Seas and the rare gold pearl from Australia have been incorporated into the Trinity Collection, named for the three intertwined bands made of white gold (for friendship), pink gold (for love) and yellow gold (for fidelity).
“Rings coil inwards, bracelets form chains of purity, pendants shimmer in sheer clusters and pearls bloom into petals, forming flowers on the Trinity ring,” according to a Cartier description.
If you want to shine in full glory wearing some of these stunning pieces, you should have a big budget, since The Trinity pearls ring will cost you $34,000, The Trinity pearls necklace is $49,000 and the Trinity pearls pendant earrings is $33,700.
