A Complete Guide to Cartier Rings Collections as of 2024
A Brief History of Cartier
Founded in Paris, France in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the Cartier brand has been synonymous with prestigious jewellery design and royalty since its creation King Edward VII referred to Cartier as the ‘king of jewellers’, ordering 27 tiaras from the jeweller in 1904. This royal warrant spread like wildfire, making Cartier to jewellery du jour for royal families around the world.
While Cartier was sold on from the family in 1964, the business has continued to grow from strength to strength, with instantly iconic designs, incredible quality work and exceptional standards maintained over more than 100 years of service.
While Cartier was first noticed for the creation of high-quality wristwatches, they quickly diversified into brooches, bracelets and rings – including the Cartier engagement ring of Grace Kelly in 1956, with a stunning 12-carat emerald cut diamond.
The History of Cartier Rings
Cartier is often associated with their incredible statement necklaces of elegant wristwatches. But their formidable selection of beautiful, elegant and luxurious Cartier gold rings and silver Cartier rings for men and women shouldn’t be overlooked.
As a jeweller, it’s no surprise that Louis-François Cartier was also an expert craftsman when it comes to Cartier diamond rings, with the Cartier Trinity Ring tracing its origins back to 1924 – one of Cartier’s oldest known collections.
Since that first collection, many of Cartier’s signature ranges have included incredible, often statement rings – from the Cartier Panther ring in the 1930’s to the Cartier Love ring, bracelets and earrings in the last 60s. With the Cartier Nail Ring and new Clash Cartier Ring collection thoroughly modernising the collection with just as much attention to detail and luxury, Cartier continues to be a success story amongst jewellers. For luxury diamond wedding rings, engagement rings or unique gifts, the Cartier band is the place to start.
Cartier’s Most Iconic Ring Collections
Cartier’s most distinctive rings and jewellery for both men and women, including Cartier wedding rings and statement rings, can be divided into specific collections, some of which span back decades.
From the iconic Cartier love ring diamond-encrusted jewellery to pure and straightforward men and women Cartier band rings, there have been numerous incredible, immediately recognisable designs created and curated over the years by the jewellers behind the Cartier brand.
Here are some of the most memorable, bit also some of the newest:
1. Cartier Trinity Ring
Arguably Cartier’s oldest collections, the Cartier Trinity ring – and jewellery collection – dates to 1924. While the longevity of the series is impressive alone, it’s the meaning behind this almost 100-year-old design that makes it particularly unique. The three interlocking rings of the design each represent something specific – silver for friendship, yellow for fidelity, and rose for love.
With the inclusion of a Cartier rose gold ring, a Cartier gold ring, and a silver Cartier ring in one single design, often with a dusting of diamonds, this ring is as luxurious as it is meaningful.
With all three shades of gold included in one piece, these Cartier rings are also excellent additions to more extensive collections. They match just about any other Cartier piece, and some in a range of styles using diamonds and the iconic Cartier logo.
2. Panthere de Cartier Ring
Animals have been a massive part of the Cartier world, and no animal is more symbolic of Cartier’s brand than the panther. Back in 1914, Louis-François Cartier commissioned a unique art piece featuring a beautiful woman and panther – using that inspiration to produce an elegant wristwatch matching the beautiful spots of a panther’s pelt. But Cartier’s obsession with all things big cat didn’t stop there.
In 1918, Jeanne Toussaint joined the Cartier brand, and quickly earned the nickname of ‘La Panthère’. Upon becoming a creative director, one of her first acts with creating elegant and bold pieces based on her namesake. With that, the Panthere de Cartier collection was born. 1935 saw the launch of the first ring, utilising striking bright gold and dark enamel for a high-contrast finish.
While the masterminds behind the Panthere collection and the unique Cartier Panther ring no longer have a stake in Cartier’s design process, the panther continues to be a distinctive and iconic part of the brand.
Cartier Panther rings are still sold to this day, building on the impressive origins and unique design styles of the past.
3. Cartier Love Ring
If you’ve heard of Cartier, you’ve heard of the Love bracelet. The smaller cousin to this iconic design is the beautiful Cartier Love wedding band for men and women, providing that same instantly iconic design on a small scale.
Available in a range of different golds and with plenty of variable design features, the Cartier Love band ring for men and women is a classic choice for a fashion ring. However, it has also been used as a Cartier love ring for men’s wedding band.
As for the meaning behind the Cartier Love collection, each piece is adorned with stylised screw embellishments. While the bracelet was designed only to be removed by a corresponding screwdriver, the Cartier Love band is a little less restrictive. Nonetheless, it still holds the same meaning – enduring love and faithfulness, displayed in its almost chastity-style design.
An iconic piece, and one that’s still beloved and evolved upon more than 40 years later.
4. Cartier Juste Un Clou Ring
With a name that literally means ‘just a nail’, the Cartier Juste un Clou ring is precisely what you might expect. Though not released until the early 2010s, the idea for the nail themed ring, often referred to as the ‘Cartier Screw Ring’, dates back to the 70s.
Originating with the nail bracelet designed for Cartier by Aldo Cipullo shortly following the success of the Love bracelet, this unique collection includes earrings, cufflinks and necklaces – as well as the iconic Cartier band itself.
The Cartier Nail ring is available in many different variations, from gem-studded editions to pure and simple white, yellow and pink gold designs. With a modern look and slightly pop-art novelty feel, these luxury pieces are sought-out for their unique appearance, and often appeal to collectors thanks to the numerous designs on offer – as well as the 1970s vintage origins of the range itself.
5. Clash de Cartier Ring
The latest collection to come from Cartier is Clash de Cartier, a luxurious punk-inspired series of rings, bracelets, necklaces and more. Introduced in 2019, Clash de Cartier is by no means vintage, but that’s precisely where its inspirations lie.
One of the newest and most stunning rings that Cartier has released in 2022 is the Clash de Cartier. It comes in three models but the double-row model is brand new. This version comes in vibrant rose gold, one of the most on-trend colours for jewellery this year, as well as an additional white gold option which is available in both rhodium and non-rhodium finishes.
It has a relatively large width of 9.2mm, making it a stand-out ring for statement looks. It is 750/1000 combination gold. The price will set you back £3,450, which is a significantly affordable figure compared to the most expensive Clash de Cartier ring model, which is worth almost £20,000 with its XL finish and Tahiti pearls, onyx and diamonds.
There is also the beads and studs model which is mid-range in terms of prices at £4,700, with its unique feature of inner onyx that gives it a very distinctive look. We think these are both stunning, especially paired with the Clash de Cartier necklace and earrings.
When it comes to the entire Clash du Cartier collection, duality is a critical focus – the use of studs and beads in the collection dates back to the jeweller’s work in the 1930s, as well as the boldness that Cartier is well known for.
As a relatively new range, Clash de Cartier hasn’t yet earned its stripes as an iconic Cartier diamond ring series, but that doesn’t mean the pieces aren’t a valuable piece of the brand’s history. With a focus on providing both masculine and feminine elements – much like the Cartier Love ring and the Cartier Juste un Clou collection, there’s every indication this new diamonds rings range could be just as sought-after in years to come, both for men and women.
While these collections don’t cover every ring ever created by Cartier, they do provide the foundations for some of the brand’s best-known, instantly recognisable pieces. Which are far more likely to include limited runs, one-offs and variations than less-successful ranges from the jewellery.
Cartier is also known for custom pieces – mainly necklaces and brooches – with pieces often reaching incredible prices at auction for one-off items or sets, especially within their earlier catalogue, thanks to their many royal and high-power connections.
6. Les Berlingots de Cartier Ring
Also new to Cartier are the Les Berlingots de Cartier rings which come in a variety of options. The pink chalcedony is our personal favourite because it is the most affordable, featuring garnet and a beautiful rose gold band.
The next most affordable of the new Les Berlingots line is the chrysoprase and amethyst model at £2,880. It also features a rose gold band but tones of green and purple make it much more of an acquired taste than the pink version.
Similar is the yellow gold and malachite version that features green and stunning gold. This Cartier ring is also set with 12 diamonds totalling 0.33 carat. This stunning Les Berlingtos sees the price raised to £4,650. For £400 less, you can opt for the onyx version that doesn’t compromise on the diamonds and retains a breathtaking finish.
However, if diamonds are what you’re after, you would be better opting for the white gold version. This also features onyx but meets these with 53 diamonds, totalling 0.98 carats. This ring is beautiful and justifies its £10,600 price tag.
7. Beautés du Monde Ring
A brand new line from Cartier is the Beautés du Monde range, which is by far the most luxurious offering of their new diamond rings. Starting at £61,500, there are three in the collection.
They all feature stunning tones of pink from rubellites and are highlighted by black onyx. The band is white gold and it is set with 134 diamonds for 1.44 carats. The three options offer unique designs for choice depending on your style, but the most expensive will set you back £76,500.
8. TANK FRANÇAISE
The Cartier Tank watch is one of the most iconic pieces of contemporary fashion. The watch strap is modeled after the treads of a military tank. The Tank watch, launched in 1917 during the First World War, was revolutionary. It drew from the geometric shapes of Art Deco and the clean lines of the Renault tanks used during the conflict.
The Tank has evolved through different styles over the years, including the Tank Louis Cartier, and Tank Américaine, there is one style that is particularly pertinent to anyone looking for a Cartier wedding band: The Tank Française.
The Tank Française was introduced in 1996, featuring a sleek metal bracelet seamlessly integrated into the case. However, it also inspired the Tank Française Ring, a white gold band with that unforgettably iconic military tank thread. For fans of the watch, this ring is essential.
9. CARTIER D’AMOUR
The Cartier d’Amour collection was inspired by the iconic 1938 platinum ring of the same name. The stunning collection features necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. However, the smooth polished platinum ring is the epitome of simple elegance. Totally unmarked on the outside, inside the ring, you will find a perfectly etched Cartier. Again, simplicity and discretion are the name of the game.
The Cartier marriage ring from this d’Amour collection is reasonably priced at just under $4,000. However, the biggest difficulty lies in getting your hands on one. These simple rings are very limited.
10. DIAMANTS LÉGERS DE CARTIER
Diamants Légers, which stands for “light diamonds,” is one of the brand’s most refined and delicate collections. While many Cartier engagement rings use diamonds, this collection is particularly focused on setting the stones within delicate and minimal jewelry. It’s not just the grace and fineness of the jewelry that is important here; it’s also the ability of the light to pass through the diamonds.
The Diamants Légers collection includes pendants, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Each piece is inspired by feathery lightness. However, the Cartier rings of the Diamants Légers collection are the real show-stoppers.
For anyone looking for the perfect Cartier proposal ring, there are two options. The first is the timeless Diamants Légers de Cartier Ring, which features a thin gold band with a bezel-set diamond. The other option is the more modern Diamants Légers de Cartier Open Ring, with two round diamonds at opposing ends of the open band.If you’re in the market for a Cartier bridal ring, the Diamants Légers de Cartier Wedding Band could be the right choice. The band is formed of simple gold adorned with delicately set diamonds. It’s an incredible choice as a wedding or eternity ring.
11. ÉCROU DE CARTIER
The Écrou de Cartier collection is a bold and vibrant line that challenges the status quo. The pieces within the collection are made to transform the every day into the extraordinary; in this case, the industrial nut (écrou in French) becomes a symbol of style and elegance.
While the Écrou de Cartier collection features bracelets and earrings, there are six Cartier rings at different price points within this iconic set. The yellow, rose, and white gold options come in various interesting forms, each with the unmistakable nut attached to the band. However, the rose gold and diamond version is the most striking.
The rose gold and diamond Écrou de Cartier ring comes with 1.21 carat of 30 baguette-cut diamonds. It’s a far cry from the traditional Cartier proposal ring that you might expect, but that is entirely the point.
12. MAILLON PANTHÈRE
Maillon Panthère, French for “Panther Link,” is a reference to the brand’s powerful and magnetic symbol, the panther, which first appeared in 1914. Sleek, elegant, and wild, the animal has proved a touchstone for the brand for well over a century.
Just like the panther, the Maillon Panthère rings are about smooth and fluid movement. The interlocking chain links are polished, round, and beautiful against the skin. The rings also use luxury precious metals, like 18k gold, and have a variety of diamonds, from the subtle to the downright ostentatious.
The choices also extend to the occasion. If you’re looking for a Cartier engagement band or a Cartier marriage ring, there is something special that you can find. There are also some statement pieces like the Maillon Panthère ring, which is 1.26 carats of 175 brilliant sparkling, luminescent diamonds. You can also find it in rose gold, but finding the $30,000 to secure this beauty might prove the bigger challenge.
Cartier Wedding and Engagement Rings
Thanks to the luxury nature of their jewellery, Cartier is an ever-popular choice for men’s and women’s engagement and wedding rings. For brides and grooms-to-be, Cartier rings are an excellent choice, because they often increase in value over time, and are an individual piece of jewellery all of their own.
Both their men and women engagement and wedding range includes some of their top collections, in addition to unique pieces with their own value and charm.
1. Cartier Rings for Engagements (Men & Women)
The bulk of Cartier’s engagement ring offerings for men and women features prominent diamonds, often on thin bands – as is the case with the Etincelle de Cartier range of rings, which are packed with luxurious gems across the band as well as a statement square-cut or pear-shaped diamond.
Their solitaire style diamonds are also a popular option for happy couples, but it wouldn’t be Cartier without a few statement pieces thrown into the mix.
The Love Solitaire range takes the classic Cartier Love ring design. It introduces either a small or larger diamond into the centre of the design, making it ideal for engagement purposes. A Trinity Solitaire is also a part of the range, with the triple golds and single diamond providing a unique approach to the engagement ring.
As for a Cartier engagement ring price, you’re looking in the thousands for many of their iconic pieces – which are more than worth the investment.
2. Cartier Rings for Weddings
As would be expected from any high-end jewellery, Cartier also stocks a wide range of suitable wedding rings within their collection. Depending on how conventional the wedding is, though, any of the brand’s many beautiful statement rings could make the ideal Cartier wedding band.
The Trinity ring, in particular, also sometimes called the Cartier Russian wedding ring, is the quintessential wedding piece from Cartier. With each ring representing commitment and love, it’s easy to see why it’s one of Cartier’s top options for wedding jewellery – and why so many variations on the design exist.
The Cartier Love band ring is another classic example of a wedding band from the luxury jewellers, thanks to all that the collection stands for. Cartier also has a current Cartier A’Amour range, with simple and minimalist bands that would match perfectly with a gem-encrusted engagement ring or Cartier eternity ring.
With plenty of variation for just about any couple, many of the designs that remain in today’s collection are vintage as they come – with unchanged designs stretching back up to 100 years.
The World’s Most Expensive Cartier Rings as of 2024
Cartier tops many lists for the auction prices of their vintage necklaces and watches – but their collection of rings can also fetch a high price. Here are some of the most valuable rings ever created by Cartier, many of which are one-off or limited-edition models:
1. Cartier Sunrise Ruby Ring– $30M
Fetching an impressive £19.6 million at auction in 2019, this blood-red gem is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. With a beautiful framing of diamonds to accompany the huge and eye-catching gem. In this case, it’s the rarity of the piece, and the beautiful gem that leads to such a significant price – these kinds of rubies are so sought-after that their price is only likely to increase over time, too.

2. THE SKY BLUE DIAMOND CARTIER RING – $19M
The Sky Blue Diamond Cartier is an 8-carat square-shaped diamond fancy vivid blue ring of exceptional quality. It went under the hammer in 2016 with an estimated price of between $15 million to $25 million. It landed roughly in the middle of that range when it was snapped up for $19 million.
Sotheby’s described the diamond color as “clear celestial blue.” Indeed, there is something otherworldly about the coolness of the ring’s sky-blue color. Blue diamonds are extremely rare, especially in this size, which goes some way toward explaining the incredible price
3. Grace Kelly’s Engagement Ring – $4M
You can’t mention Cartier rings without mentioning Grace Kelly. Her elegant emerald-cut diamond band was hand-crafted by master jewellers at Cartier back in the 1950s, with a border of two beautiful baguette diamonds.
Cartier rings don’t come much bigger and bolder than this. When Grace Kelly met Prince Rainier III of Monaco at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955, the pair instantly fell for each other. Seven months later, the prince flew to her homeland to propose, which is like a scene from a Hollywood romance.
The ring that Prince Rainier III gave Kelly was a 10.48-carat diamond, making it perhaps the most spectacular Cartier engagement band of all time. Worth $4 million at the time, on today’s market, a ring of this caliber would be worth closer to $40 million. The pair were happily married until Kelly’s death in 1982 after complications from a car accident.
4. CARTIER EMERALD AND DIAMOND RING $3.6M
At Sotheby’s auction house in New York in late 2020, a stunning Cartier emerald and diamond ring went up for sale. Pre-auction estimates suggested the seller could expect around $1 million for the ring. However, it went for $3.5 million.
The emerald is 21.86-carat. Cut in an emerald shape and unearthed in Columbia, the ring was mounted on yellow gold. While the ring was not flawless in terms of the exacting standards of diamond appraisal, its breathtaking appearance was enough to turn heads and open wallets.
The emerald came from the collection of Cecile Zilkha, wife of Iraqi-born American financier Ezra Zilkha.
5. CARTIER ROYAL BLUE SAPPHIRE RING $3.3M
This incredible Burmese sapphire ring went up for auction at the Sotheby’s New York Magnificent Jewel auction. It was not out of place. The emerald cut sapphire, a monstrous 33.51 carat, was from the Constance Prosser Mellon collection.
According to Sotheby’s, the ring was “adored and cherished by the matriarchs of the Mellon family for decades.” A pre-sale estimate of under $2 million was soon surpassed at auction, with this stunning Cartier engagement band selling for $3.3 million.
6. CARTIER MAGNIFICENT DIAMOND RING $3.2M
In November 2022, a 33.13 Cartier engagement band went up for sale at Sotheby’s Geneva. The ring was called the Magnificent Diamond, and it’s more than earned that name. The stunning step-cut center stone with a mount of tapered baguette diamonds is absolutely unforgettable.
The GIA report suggests that this very slightly excluded D color stone could become internally flawless with a bit of polishing. The pre-sale estimate suggested the ring could fetch around $3.8 million. In the end, it went for about $3.2 million, making it one of the most expensive Cartier rings of all time.
How to Tell if a Cartier Ring is Genuine
It’s a forgone conclusion that one of the world’s most popular luxury jewellery brands has many imitators, and as such, ensuring your Cartier pieces are real is a must. The Cartier Love Ring collection for men and women, in particular, has spawned many scams and fakes, which can be a costly mistake for uninformed buyers. These are some of the ways you can ensure your Cartier ring is genuine:
If your Cartier ring still has its original packaging, it can be easy to tell a real from a fake. Typically, the Cartier logo will be included within the ring box, and the quality of the fabrics and suede used for packaging will be very high. You should have a certificate of authenticity within your packaging, which increases the likelihood of your Cartier ring being genuine.
2. Logos and Hallmarks
Depending on the age and type of Cartier ring you have, hallmarks will be included on the inside of the ring itself. This will consist of the Cartier logo, and also the serial number of the ring itself for modern pieces. The Cartier ring size may also be included on the inside. All fonts used for hallmarks are consistent and of the same depth, whereas on fakes they may be less consistent.
3. Material quality
Cartier rings are made to a high standard, often with 18-karat gold or higher in some cases. All Cartier Love ring gold versions are made of 18k yellow, white or rose gold, for example. This is the same case whether it’s a Cartier love ring men or women’s version, and the same applies to the wider collections available from Cartier.
How much do Cartier rings cost as of 2024?
Cartier rings come in different shapes, sizes, and designs and use a wide range of materials and stones. As such, prices vary wildly from piece to piece. However, if we break these rings down into categories, we can begin to get a sense of how much you can expect to pay for a Cartier band.
1. Simple Cartier bands
You can find a simple Cartier bridal ring for as little as $1,000 directly from the Cartier website. Your options at this price point are typically rose or yellow gold. Simple platinum Cartier rings will cost more than $1,150.
Love or Panthere Cartier wedding bands start from around $1,500. You can find a Cartier Trinity ring for around $2,000, but prices soon escalate as designs become more complex.
Various collections, like Just un Clou, Ecrou de Cartier, and C de Cartier, will start at over $3,000 due to their exquisite craftsmanship and design.
2. Diamond Cartier wedding bands
Cartier Love wedding bands with diamonds start at around $5,000 and escalate in price based on the design and quality of the diamonds. Broderie de Cartier wedding bands will cost around $8,000 in today’s market, with other Cartier bridal ring collections, such as Enticelle de Cartier, pushing past $10,000 and more.
3. Cartier engagement rings
Cartier engagement rings also vary considerably in price. An entry-level Cartier proposal ring will cost over $3,000 for a 0.16-carat diamond. A Ballerine 0.49-carat Solitaire will be nearer $8,000, while Solitaires with exceptional stones are around $20,000 to $30,000.
How Cartier Maintains Their Image
Whilst the women’s and men’s Cartier Love ring meaning is love and faithfulness, Cartier has some clever means of keeping their luxurious image. It’s well accepted that demand for Cartier jewellery exceeds the supply, indicating that they have scarce inventory. However, this is accomplished by Cartier regularly removing their merchandise from circulation.
By limiting their jewellery, Cartier reduces the chance that someone would buy a ring and sell it for a bargain price. The company will even buy up vintage pieces, which drastically increase the value of those in circulation. This practice is commonplace amongst luxury brands.
Cartier also upholds their luxurious image by attracting royal customers. King Edward VII referred to Cartier as the “Jeweler of Kings and King of Jewelers” for a reason. King Edward VIII proposed to Wallis Simpson in 1936 with a 19.77K emerald ring, which sparked outrage due to the ongoing Great Depression’s effects on Europe. He abdicated the throne soon after.
Another royal Cartier ring belonged to Princess Diana. Her emerald-cut aquamarine ring carried on through her family—former Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wore it during her wedding reception.
By working with royals and keeping supplies scarce, Cartier has cemented itself as a luxury brand, keeping it relevant nearly two centuries after its start.
Seeking professional advice
Whether it’s an heirloom ring or a gift, there are many reasons why you may want to know whether a Cartier ring you own is genuine. Especially if it’s from one of the iconic collections included within this guide. Seeking professional help to appraise and value your Cartier men’s wedding ring, or any other kind of ring can ensure you know the worth of the ring you own.
Cartier 750 rings – which many of Cartier’s rings fall under – are rings that are more than 75% metal, such as 18k gold—to the naked eye, seeing if your ring meets that criterion can be a challenge. But with our insight and expertise, valuing a Cartier ring is a quick, easy and effortless experience. Whether it’s part of Cartier’s famous Love, Panthere or Trinity collections, or a one-off piece, we’re ready to help you.
Which Cartier ring to buy?
Cartier rings are renowned for their beauty and high quality, and we understand how important it is to pick the right one. Which Cartier ring you buy depends very much on what you are looking for in your Cartier band. Many people consider Cartier’s Art Deco period to have been the brand’s finest, so if you’re looking for a luxurious, glamorous, statement piece, we would recommend looking at Cartier rings from this period. One of the most sought-after Cartier bands is the beautiful Trinity design, which consists of three interlocking bands in yellow, white, and rose gold, with each band representing a different feature of a relationship. This romantic element to the Trinity design makes it perfect for those looking to buy a Cartier engagement or wedding ring, as it is wonderfully symbolic of enduring love, and has been since the launch of the Trinity line in 1924. The Cartier Love range, which was born in 1969, is perhaps one of the brand’s most iconic ranges to date. The Cartier Love ring features two tiny screws holding the ring in place, invisible from the outside, and its simplistic band design makes it a highly popular choice for a simple yet luxurious-feeling wedding ring. If you are looking for a sophisticated and elegant Cartier ring to buy which features some adornment, then we can recommend a Juste un Clou ring. These strikingly beautiful rings wrap in an elegant spiral around the wearer’s finger, and many feature a gemstone adornment, making them a perfect choice for a slightly more unique engagement ring.
Can Cartier Love rings be resized?
The answer is, that due to the ring’s signature screw design, it is incredibly difficult to resize, as resizing it may ruin the symmetry of the design. We would advise against attempting to have the Cartier Love ring resized, as attempted alterations can make it more difficult to sell it in the future, particularly if the alteration affects the design of the band. So, in simple terms, no, Cartier Love rings cannot be resized due to their unique design.
Can Cartier Trinity rings be resized?
Yes, Cartier Trinity rings can be resized. However, due to the design of the Trinity ring, which features the three interlocking bands, it can prove relatively difficult, and therefore quite costly, for a Cartier Trinity ring to be resized. Given the complications that resizing these timeless rings can pose, it is recommended not to get your ring resized by a non-reputable jeweller – taking it directly to Cartier would be the best idea. It is also important to remember that a bad adjustment can impact the value of your Cartier ring.
Can you exchange a Cartier ring?
If you’re considering exchanging a Cartier ring, you will have to do so within 30 days of purchase, in order to fulfil Cartier’s Returns & Exchange policy terms and conditions. If you have had your ring engraved or modified, it will not be eligible for exchange. Engravings and modifications also affect the selling value of your Cartier ring.Therefore, if you are not completely happy with your Cartier ring once you have purchased it, make sure to get in touch with Cartier as soon as possible in order to be able to exchange it, and don’t get any modifications to your ring.
How to clean a Cartier ring?
It is important to know how to clean your Cartier ring, as improper cleaning can leave it with unwanted marks, ruining the appearance of your band. Luckily, you can carry out the cleaning of your Cartier ring yourself, if you so wish. To do so, dip a small, soft brush in lukewarm water, and very gently brush your ring. Once finished with brushing it, lightly rinse your Cartier ring in lukewarm water, and wipe it with a soft cloth. We would also recommend taking it to a Cartier store annually in order for it to undergo a proper cleaning.
How much does a Cartier ring cost?
Finding out how much a Cartier ring costs is an important part of the buying process. The price of a Cartier ring varies depending on its design when it was made, and a variety of other factors. Even within the same collection, the price of different designs can vary significantly. For example, a Cartier Love yellow gold wedding ring retails for £950 on the Cartier website, whilst the most expensive ring in the collection, the white gold diamond-paved Love ring, retails for £13,300. Meanwhile, the Trinity de Cartier collection ranges from £830 all the way up to £37,600, showing that the cost of your ring really depends on what you want it to look like, be made out of, and be adorned with, amongst other things. The most expensive Cartier ring ever sold is the Sunrise Ruby ring, which sold at auction in 2015 for an enormous £19.6 million. This fantastic ring houses the world’s most valuable ruby, at 25.59 carats and with remarkable clarity.
How to measure Cartier ring size
Measure your finger as opposed to the ring itself, in order to get a more accurate measurement. In order to measure, wrap a length of string or ribbon around the base of your finger, allowing for it to slide on and off with relative ease. You should also measure your knuckle to ensure it will be able to go on properly. Mark the point on the ribbon where the ends meet with a pen, then measure in millimetres and compare to the Cartier ring size chart, going for the closest measurement. You should now have found your perfect ring size, and this should be consistent across all Cartier collections, with the exception of the Trinity de Cartier collection.
