Cartier Icons: A Short History On The Juste un Clou

Jewelry & Watches

If you’ve been an avid reader of Bagaholicboy, Cartier’s iconic Juste un Clouwould be no stranger to you. Thing is, do you know how the humble nail became one of the French luxury house’s signature pieces of jewellery? Well, read on to find out.

The man who designed Cartier’s LOVE also designed the Juste un Clou, and he was Aldo Cipullo, a jewellery designer who joined the company in 1969. Professing a love for all things bolts, nuts and screws (he even said once the hardware store was his second home), the Juste un Clou was created 3 years later in 1971 and inspired by the humble nail. But in the hands of Aldo Cipullo, the most common of hardware essentials was masterfully turned into something that was (and still is) equal parts desirable and irresistible.

Cool, edgy and sexy, the Juste un Clou became one of the standout icons of the 1970s, all thanks to Cipullo who had pioneered a new trend in fashion for precious jewellery inspired by modern machines and their parts. The beauty of the Juste un Clou ultimately lies in its wearability; you can wear it with almost anything dressed up or down as you pleased.

It is also a piece of jewellery that men can pull off, being a piece that’s chunky and sizeable in all the right places. Great for him, and for her, that’s true versatility, and coupled with the fact that it has transcended trends and time, the Juste un Clou is an icon in its own right, and deservedly so.

Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Aérolithe Performance

Jewelry & Watches

The Bugatti Aérolithe Performance is the newest timepiece made and developed by Swiss luxury watchmaker Parmigiani Fleurier to continue its relationship with the French hypercar-maker. It was back in 2001 when the first meeting between Parmigiani Fleurier and Bugatti took place, and the two brands formally entered into a partnership in 2004. Bugatti gave Parmigiani Fleurier carte blanche to craft some of the most exclusive creations, using sophisticated materials often unseen in the automotive industry and on a scale that fills the car manufacturer with admiration; and the Bugatti collection, inspired by the spirit of the Molsheim-based brand, was born.



The collection began with the Bugatti Type 370, which set the benchmark for the future models. Since then, several timepieces have been introduced as a part of the Bugatti collection along with the Parmigiani Bugatti Aérolithe Chronograph, which was released in 2014 and inspired by the legendary 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Aérolithe. The Fleurier-based watchmaker’s newest timepiece also pays tribute to the same automotive masterpiece; but is a more refined, super-exclusive watch you would expect to come out of the partnership between the two high-end brands. This model focuses on the rich and textured dial created by techniques only achievable through use of laser technology.

Even by Bugatti standards, the 1935 Type 57 Aerolithe was no ordinary car. Built a few years before the infamous type 57SC Atlantics, the story of the Bugatti Aérolithe is an almost legend. Jean Bugatti built the Bugatti Aérolithe, hidden from his father Ettore, by creating it from a highly flammable magnesium alloy called ‘Elektron’ that made welding impossible. The body was designed in two parts joined by an ingenious riveted dorsal seam. The Aérolithe made a sensational debut at the 1935 Earl’s Court Motor Show in the U.K. and had one road test in 1936. But soon after, the incredible car disappeared from the surface of the earth. The car was never seen again; it was most likely destroyed.

When creating the Bugatti Aérolithe Performance, Parmigiani Fleurier was inspired by the legendary prototype’s beauty and mystery. Instead of the extremely flammable magnesium alloy used in the car, the 41mm case of the watch is made entirely from titanium, using laser technology to apply finishes beyond the capability of conventional machining. The dial has a diamond-shaped, textured pattern in which the ends of the diamonds are polished in order to create a richer, textured look. Parmigiani Fleurier says that it is impossible to achieve it without the use of said laser technology. Even the exterior of the dial is ‘selectively laser sand blasted’ to add to the aesthetic appeal of the timepiece.

Disney Tsum Tsum X SK Jewellery Collection

Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: SK JEWELLERY

I can think of at least 3 reasons why you should read this post. Firstly, it’s Disney Tsum Tsum! Secondly it’s Disney Tsum Tsum! And lastly, it’s Disney Tsum Tsum! Jokes aside though, with the way the world is now, it’s probably smartest to start putting your money into gold, and because not everyone here (me included) can actually afford gold ingots, this would be a start. And since they all come designed with the cutest Tsum Tsum characters as well, this is perhaps the best of both worlds. One of actually buying something that will hold its value in the long run, and adorable AF. Really.

From 999 pure gold charms in the shape of Mickey Mouse and Winnie The Pooh you can ‘stack’ onto the bracelet that’s also available via SK Jewellery, they also have cute Tsum Tsum characters in the form of pendants as well as gold coins (choose from 0.2 or 0.5 gm options) that come printed with cute mugshots of Elsa, Stitch, even Marie from the animated classic Aristocats.

For those who want to ‘splurge’, there are even gold bars that come in either 2 gm or 1 gm options. Well, not exactly gold bars, more sheets of gold than anything else, but you know what I mean. While there’s no word yet on their exact prices, you can now check out the full collection at SK Jewellery showrooms across Singapore. Another Christmas gifting option to put onto your shopping list perhaps?

Brunello Cucinelli Ivory Knot Necklace: The Great White Way

Jewelry & Watches

Brunello Cucinelli Ivory Knot Necklace

I’ve been hooked on Brunello Cucinelli since my very first purchase (a short sleeve cashmere blend coat with fox fur cuffs at the ends of the sleeves – doesn’t get more perfect for Southern California living). His jewelry is equally addicting. The aesthetic is soft and elegant, but there’s always a spectacular aspect that makes your heart stop. For instance, this necklace is really just a simple piece of stranded beads, but the effect is nothing short of breathtaking. The boldness comes from its uniquely layered, teardrop-shaped loops that cascade down like currents in a waterfall. The magnesite beads (minerals that can be dyed to match any color in the spectrum – but as you can see, sometimes no color at all makes the boldest statement) have the look of ivory, and since we don’t condone the use of ivory, it’s the perfect substitute. This necklace possesses a sense of grandeur, so it can definitely be dressed up. But with unpolished beads and leather straps connecting the back, it’s also casual enough to throw on over a cute summer dress, making this a piece you’ll wear often and get compliments on every time.

Vannesa Tosoni Pearl Necklaces: Revenge is Best Served in Pearls

Jewelry & Watches

Vanessa Tosoni Pearl Necklaces

Revenge is my favorite show on TV right now, and Victoria Grayson is without a doubt the best love to hate villain. She’s the ultimate Snob  so of course I was thrilled to see her wear my dear friend Vannesa Tosoni’s pearl necklaces on the January 6th episode. Since the first lady of Grayson manor has killed and committed unspeakable crimes for money, she can obviously buy anything she wants but lucky for everyone in the Hamptons, she didn’t need to kill for these affordable fresh water beauties. The large rounded Tiffany pearl necklace is like an updated version of the classic strand of pearls – perfect for a modern matriarch like Victoria. On its own, this is a piece with serious luster, but mixing it with two doubly long strand of smaller Michelle pearlscreated a layered look that was as chic as Victoria herself and yet still fit for a hot summer’s day of plotting at the beach. Find these on VannesaTosoni.com or e-mail Vanessa for more information.
