Invest In The Best...cartier And Van Cleef & Arpels
A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls. - Coco Chanel

There are two types of women in this world…bag ladies and jewelry addicts! I’m a total bag lady, yet I still rock my costume jewelry, like the imitation Kate Middleton-esque sapphire and crystal studs I got from the Buckingham Palace gift shop. Meanwhile, one of my besties is a jewelry fanatic who proudly carries her reusable shopping bag to complement the glimmering Cartier diamonds around her neck, wrist and fingers.

If we were royal, we could justify purchasing a new Chanel Boy Alligator Flap Bag AND a Cartier Diamond Trinity Ring, but commoners spending a chunk of their yearly salary on such items is frivolous—and ridiculous!

Certain types of jewelry are considered an investment—just like Hermès Birkin Bags and Chanel Flap Bags—but which jewelry designers give you the best ROI? Look no further than Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier!

And on that note, look no further than LePrix…we’ve got hundreds of their decadent designs in brand new, pre-loved and vintage condition. Let’s explore each designer and check out some of our favorite pieces, brought to you by our partnerships with over 600 of the world’s most luxurious designer consignment boutiques!

Cartier

Obviously Cartier needs no introduction. It's one of the most prestigious jewelers in the world! Whether your heart skips a beat for the Love Collection, the Trinity Ring or the Roadster Watch, it's no wonder this much-adored brand has been the jewelry line of choice for celebrities, royalty and socialites since 1847.
