It is slightly different compared to other white gold jewelry as this is not plated. Normal white gold jewelry are plated with rhodium so that they appeared whiter and more shiny. Cartier only plate the white gold with diamond , the plain one is the original white gold color.

Cartier WG also has more of a grey color because of the alloy that is used for the WG. This in combination with it not being rhodium plated makes it look more grey and less bright than most white gold pieces. I love it. It is a very industrial look and gains a nice patina with wear.

Definitely! They're known for their darker white gold in the bracelets -- as a previous reply said, only the plates WG has that "bright" look (which always seems more like sterling silver anyway)

Thank you ladies for your informative replies. I bought my Juste Clou 2 years ago and kept it in the safe. When I took it out to wear few days ago... it looked greyish more than white...for a moment I was puzzled and thought it was reflection of my YG Love until I saw the replies above!

I'm curious, do you know why they don't put rhodium on it? Thanks !

So, Cartier Boutique will not refuse customer's request to rhodiumize love bracelet (no diamond) ? Off course, with cost as nothing is free :smile:.
The reason I asked again is I believe they refuse this kind of request. Did anyone has 'actual' experience about this ?

So weird right? They (at least now) rhodiumize the juc but not the love. I don't get it.

Cartier does rhodiumize the love with diamonds though. Hth!
maybe that's the reason the juste un clou is more expensive? who knows! I dont get it... I'll be in Dallas tomorrow so I think ill stop by cartier and ask! :smile:
