How old were you when you got your first Cartier piece?

I was 40. It was when Hubbs and I got engaged. In place of the traditional engagement ring I opted for a Love set (WG engagement wedding band, WG eight diamond band and the small WG Love bracelet). I got him a Love wedding band. This was definitely a day to be remembered seeing we flew to France and made our purchases at the Place Vendome in Paris. What a fabulous experience!!!!
 
Funny addendum to my post—I got my first faux Cartier at 9 or 10. Someone gave my mom a knockoff watch, and she doesn’t do cheap imitations. (Plus she had a nice Gucci watch at that time.)

She wound up giving me that faux Cartier watch, and I actually wore it for many years at that tender age. I didn’t know what Cartier was, really, but I assumed it had to be fancy. LOL!!

20 in college. I bought my tri-gold trinity cord on Fashionphile. It was at a great price and came with box and authenticity card etc. I figured that even if it was fake (which I found out it’s not/ who would fake such a small value item from Cartier), it’s such a small piece and could tossed if faked.

My first in store “real” purchase was at 22 at the Paris airport (last summer going to see distant family for first time since covid) and got the small Love wedding band in WG. Since then, have been too much on a Cartier kick especially in the last few months but living in NYC, going to the boutique to try on sizes is so much easier than guessing.

Same with me. All it took was for me to get that Love bangle and I was hooked thereafter. I would say 90% of my jewelry is Cartier today.

25! My fiancé bought me a Love ring and a JUC ring both in YG and it’s been downhill ever since then lol. A year later I got my two Love bracelets and then my diamond JUC bracelet this year for my 28th birthday!
That is the same timeline for me too started at 25 with rings and it spiralled to getting the bracelets at 27/28

I’m 38 and got my very first Cartier this year. Hubby and I got matching yellow gold Love cuffs (one diamond for me :cool:) and yellow gold rings for our 10-year wedding anniversary. At this point, I’m at Cartier-peace but I guess never say never. :biggrin:
