Cartier’s Latest Price Increase: How Much More Will You Have To Pay?
Cartier is another luxury brand that has recently increased the prices of their jewelry, and we have everything you need to know about the recent Cartier price increase in this article.
Cartier is one of the most popular luxury jewelry brands, known in particular for their LOVE and Juste Un Clou collections that are now world-renowned. Just like jewelry brands, Tiffany and Van Cleef and Arpels, and fashion brands, like Louis Vuitton and Chanel, Cartier pieces have recently undergone a price hike.
Luxury brands will regularly increase their prices to reflect price increases in material and production, but some increases in recent years have been particularly high. We have brought together all the information you need on the most recent Cartier price increase in 2022 so you can buy your next beautiful Cartier piece with confidence.
Cartier price increase in 2022
Cartier has stayed pretty quiet about their recent price increase, so it is hard to know the exact price changes of their luxury goods. However, Cartier CEO Cyrille Vigneron announced in a recent interview that the brand will increase its prices between 3% and 5%.
This could mean that popular items, such as the Juste Un Clou bangle and Panthere de Cartier necklaces will be a couple of hundred dollars more expensive. The LOVE bracelet, for example, could now be $375 more expensive!
Although it is never fun to hear about one of your favorite luxury brands increasing the prices of their fine jewelry, this is actually quite a small price rise. Brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany have recently announced price increases with a percentage increase in the double figures!
There are likely to be more price increases from Cartier in the future, so it’s best to pick up that new Cartier necklace or ring sooner rather than later!
Why Has there been a price increase?
Vigneron has said that this ‘mid-price increase has occurred due to the higher cost of materials such as diamonds, gold, and platinum. Cartier has stopped buying diamonds and precious metals from Russia and so this will cause the prices of some Cartier pieces to increase as the materials will have to be sourced from other places.
The strengthening of the Chinese Yuan and American Dollar against the Euro has also contributed to these price increases.
Best-Selling Cartier pieces
There are so many gorgeous Cartier pieces that you really need in your luxury jewelry collection, so we have brought together some of the must-have pieces that will suit any style.
Buying a Cartier piece on the resale market is a great option if there is a piece you really love but is just outside your budget. however, it is worth bearing in mind that any price increases on the new Cartier pieces will cause the price of any resale pieces to increase a little too.
The Cartier Juste Un Clou is one of the most iconic designs, first created by Italian jewelry designer Aldo Cipullo in 1971 in New York and has been a staple in the collection ever since.
The design is simple but stunning, as you can see in the image above of the 18 karat yellow gold Small Juste Un Clou Bracelet – the bracelet looks as though a nail has been wrapped around your wrist for an eye-catching look. The Juste Un Clou collection now includes rings as well and the pieces are available in yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.
The LOVE bracelet is another Cartier piece designed by Aldo Cipullo, first introduced in 1969, and has since become a cult classic piece, seen on the wrist of countless celebrities.
The LOVE bracelet is intended to signify eternal love with the screw motifs that are engraved into the bracelet and the one actual screw that secures the bracelet to the wrist – meaning the bracelet cannot be easily slipped on and off like normal jewelry. There are now LOVE necklaces, rings, and earrings in the collection and it is available in a range of metals.
