Cartier’s love bracelet, also known as the modern-day love cuff, is one of the most stunning and iconic pieces of jewelry by the brand, and owning one could easily be the very best investment you make.
It represents enduring and eternal love, which is the symbolism behind the bracelet, and also what was the inspiration behind the design of the bracelet by Aldo Cipullo.
It is made of 18k gold, which means that it’s a valuable accessory worth investing in, and it would be a great accessory for you. But how do you wear the love bracelet, or rather, on which hand does the love bracelet go on?
Cartier love bracelet? Which wrist and why?
Well, most people choose to wear the love bracelet, like any other bracelet, on their non-dominant hand. This is the case because wearing it on your dominant hand would mean that the bracelet gets in the way. On the non-dominant hand, the bracelet doesn’t get in the way.
It’s worth noting that the design of the love bracelet allows for a sense of permanence in that after wearing the bracelet, you’d have to keep the bracelet on for a long time.
The screws of the bracelet are not easy to work on, and you cannot take the bracelet on or off daily. So, wearing the bracelet on your non-dominant wrist makes more sense.
It’s also worth noting that the love bracelet is designed to withstand a great deal of wear and tear, and you get to shower in it and do all other everyday tasks with it on.
And as a symbol of everlasting love, the love bracelet’s screw-on design means that the bracelet is meant to be worn for a long period. With this in mind, it is important for you to wear the bracelet on your non-dominant hand.
Wearing it on your non-dominant hand alongside your watch also means that the bracelet will be in good condition for long because it won’t get scratched as easily as it would if it were on your dominant hand.
But some people still wear the love bracelet on their dominant hand, noting that the bracelet never really gets in the way, and it is perfectly comfortable on the dominant hand, even when working.
The only thing you’d have to do when wearing the bracelet on your dominant hand is to make sure that the bracelet goes high up on your arm.
Right wrist? Why?
Most right-handed individuals still wear the bracelet on their dominant hand because the bracelet is more noticeable on the dominant hand, it doesn’t really get in the way, even in the right, and also, it just works for them.
People who are left-handed also wear the bracelet on the right wrist because that is their non-dominant hand, and it makes sense to wear the bracelet on the non-dominant hand for most people.
Left wrist? Why?
For extra comfort, especially because the love bracelet is not something you wear and take off daily, it makes more sense for you to wear the bracelet on your left wrist, especially if that is your non-dominant hand.
Wearing the love bracelet on the left wrist also means that the bracelet will not be scratched too soon after purchase.
At the end of the day, regardless of the hand, you wear the bracelet on, your love bracelet will get a few thin scratches, as expected, and you shouldn’t get too worked up about it.
Is it OK to wear two or more Cartier love bracelets on one hand?
Yes, there is nothing wrong with wearing or stacking more than one love bracelet on one hand. The only catch is that when stacking at least one love bracelet, you want to keep them in your left hand.
You could also stack the love bracelet alongside your watch on your left hand as well. Because the love bracelet isn’t designed to be taken off daily, wearing them on the left hand ensures maximum comfort.
How many Cartier love bracelets can you wear on the same wrist?
You can wear any number of love bracelets on the same wrist, but to be safe, we recommend keeping the love bracelets on one wrist to a maximum of 5.
Also, consider keeping the number of love bracelets an odd number – it looks good, and the odd numbers mean a great sense of balance, even with the watch on.
But even without a maximum number for how many bracelets you can wear, you should avoid stacking them up all the way to your elbow because it will be very uncomfortable.
So, for maximum appeal, wear between 2 and 5 love bracelets.
How many Cartier love bracelets can you wear on both wrists?
Well, you could stack as many or as few love bracelets on both wrists as you are comfortable with.
At the end of the day, your style and overall preference in terms of the jewelry you choose is what really matters, and it is what will guide you in terms of the number of love bracelets that you can wear.
That said, not everyone is comfortable with wearing bracelets on both wrists, which means that wearing love bracelets on both wrists is more or less a personal choice.
Tips for wearing love bracelets
- Stack your bracelets in even numbers for a nice finish and appeal
- Mix up the metals when stacking the bracelets. The best part is that there are rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, and gemstone-encrusted love bracelets. Just mix them up, and ensure that the bracelets along with the watch all balance out.
- Also, consider mixing the small and the regular-sized love bracelets. There is great beauty in asymmetry, and this offers a great way of stacking up your love bracelets.
For most people, the love bracelet is best worn on your non-dominant hand, although you could wear it on either hand, as long as you are feeling comfortable in it.
