I have a question for anyone here. I am trying to decide between the yellow gold with half diamonds and the platinum. I have a platinum band engagement ring with my solitaire diamond. Also as a clear winter (for those of you who follow the 12 color combos) I can wear silver and gold as the bridge between winter and spring. I recently bought a cartier tank louis and changed the leather band to black and added a deployment clasp. I'm wondering what you guys think about adding a yg half diamond on other wrist versus a platinum which I can only seem to find on eBay I don't see it on the website anymore. Thanks for letting me join in!
I only had white gold and platinum jewelry before I bought my YG 4-diamond love. I fell in LOVE with the YG and despite wearing a platinum and diamond ER, I have never regretted it! I love them together and would do it again if I had to make the choice again.

Its always been made of gold or platinum.

I doubt Cartier would do one in sterling as it might make people say why spend for it in white gold or platinum. Sure it would allow them to sell in greater volume, but that may take away from the perceived exclusivity of the brand. I know some people that stopped buying Tiffany products when they went crazy offering sterling silver products in the 1990s. They felt it diluted the brand, and what was the point of having things that high school kids in fancy neighborhoods are wearing.

They didn't offer 30 %. One of the reasons must be WG is not so popular in the used market. It seems they offer higher prices for PG ones.

The atlas is actually something that is very intriguing to me right now! Too bad they discontinued the gold one, but maybe I can stack my gold cuff with a silver atlas cuff.

I don't want it to be a hassle, but do you mind posting pictures of the love and atlas stack in a top, bottom, and a side view? (The side view being like the picture below) As you can tell I'm very OCD with the stack being as perfect as I can (despite its two different designs and designer).

I would love to order one but can't go to a store, so online is the only way to go. Your picture would mean a lot to me!

It depends on where you live, everything is relative. Often when people are spending a certain amount of money, they expect some level of exclusivity. I'n not sure I can blame them for that.

OMG, how did one manage to break the screw?? Not being able to repair sucks further, I must be careful with the screws then!

Thank you so much for your advice.
You are quite welcome!

Yes absolutely! Thank you so much for your pictures! I have decided that this will definitely work with my love cuff. Do you think I should stay with my plain silver cuff to pair with my love, or get the atlas to replace my silver cuff? I feel like, the silver pair is kind of boring, but at the same time, it allows the love to shine, whereas the atlas may be competing with my love.

Hello Alex, I like my atlas gold but would like to really mix my jewelries. But since I'm more into gold. I tend to go towards that direction. And I didn't want to get silver love for my first one. I personally like the looks of the atlas with the love since they match in size.
I just don't know if I should have just gotten me a 17 ONLY because of the clic clac or better with the 16cm I have now because of the Atlas. I prefer the latter. My decision was base on the atlas and thought of the clic clac later.

When I see a gold plated bracelet on eBay, it's fake right? Cartier only makes 18k gold in the 3 colors, right?

I'm dying to figure out what to get to layer with my love. It looks good with my diamond evil eye but it seems so lonely!

I'm positive it's fake. Cartier won't make a gold plated one, and if it's too good to be true, it's always not true. People will not sell a real Love for less than the amount they ask for. Be careful.

If its the electroplated aldo one from the 70s then it is genuine

It depends, aldo created an electroplated version decades ago. So plated loves do exist. A member owns this so I would do a search and see if the pictures match up.
