Cons of the Cartier Love Bracelet
There are 3 main cons of the Cartier Love bracelet, it’s difficult to get off by yourself, it’s heavy, and is made with 18k gold so it scratches easily.
The Cartier Love bracelet has a locking mechanism where you have to use the mini screwdriver and hold the Love bracelet in place while you screw in the Love bracelet making it very difficult to get on and off by yourself. Granted it’s not supposed to come off and you’re supposed to wear it all the time, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to take your jewelry off when you sleep or workout. I personally find that when I wear my Cartier Love that I need help getting it on and off. This doesn’t apply to the Cartier Love Ring only the bracelets.
What is surprising about the Cartier Love bracelet is the weight of this bracelet, it is heavier than you may think and wearing it constantly can hurt your wrist. These structured bracelets weigh anywhere between 30 and 38 grams depending on the size you purchase. It’s important that you are prepared for how heavy this bracelet is, especially if you plan to wear it all the time.
One of the biggest negatives about the Cartier Love bracelet is it is made with 18k gold and can scratch super easily. After a few wears you’ll notice that your bracelet has several scratches. The good news is you can take it to Cartier to have it buffed out or even use a jewelry cloth to clean it yourself. This is one of the main reasons that people often look for an alternative to the Cartier Love bracelet

You’ll be able to achieve the same great look at a fraction of the price. Cartier also has cheaper bracelets more affordable bracelets.
