Cartier Gold and Diamond Woven Mesh Link Bracelet


The sinuously fluid drape of this woven mesh link gold Cartier Paris bracelet, sprinkled with diamonds, sheaths the wrist with a light touch, as if it is made of the finest chainmail. Ribbed circular links are woven together with polished ties and adorned with platinum bezel-set diamonds—creating a strikingly complex sense of variation behind orderly rows of diamonds.

As more women entered the workforce, the jewelry of the 1980s explored themes of power and self-actualization. This bracelet’s opulent interpretation of chainmail calls to mind the highly-ornamented armor of European courtiers.
