      Photo: Cartier Trinity Watch
      Founded in 1847, Cartier is first and foremost a jewelry manufacturer, with a history of serving royalty and aristocracy. Called "Jeweler to Kings, King of Jewelers" by Edward VII, Cartier was already a highly acclaimed jeweler when it branched out into watchmaking in the late 19th century. As such, many of Cartier's timepieces are inspired by its jewelry collections. One of these is the "Cartier Trinity."

      Inspired by the cult classic designed by Louis Cartier in 1924, the Cartier Trinity watch features three bands in yellow gold, white gold and rose gold that embrace each other to form a single ring. These bands represent love, friendship and loyalty, making the Cartier Trinity an enduring symbol of human relationships.

      Since its creation, Cartier's Trinity has traveled the lineage between jewelry, sculpture and watchmaking, becoming one of the Maison's most coveted designs. Discover the women's collection of Cartier Trinity watches at

      History of the Cartier Trinity Watch Collection
      The Cartier Trinity watch has its roots in the Trinity ring designed by Louis Cartier in 1924.

      Legend has it that Louis designed this watch for his friend Jean Cocteau, the designer, playwright, poet and painter. Cocteau had dreamed of the rings of Saturn and asked Louis to turn them into jewelry. Taking his friend's imagination as a starting point, Louis created an interlocking piece using three rings of different precious metals: yellow gold, white gold and pink gold. Pink gold represents "love", white gold represents "friendship" and yellow gold represents "fidelity". Pink gold represents "love", white gold represents "friendship" and yellow gold represents "loyalty", with each band thought to embody a different stage of a romantic relationship.

      Aside from its unique concept, what made the Cartier Trinity stand out was its streamlined design. In the 1920s, when Art Deco and flapper styles were at their peak, many jewelers, including Cartier, focused on creating colorful and exotic designs. The pure design of the Cartier Trinity represented the dignity of Louis Cartier and the Maison.

      Jean Cocteau would wear the Cartier "Trinity" ring on his finger for the rest of his life. He was also seen wearing the ring on Hollywood icons such as Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper, making the Cartier Trinity ring a cult classic. With connections to royalty and celebrities, Cartier Trinity has spawned a collection of bracelets, earrings, and timepieces. It wasn't until 1998 that the ring was officially named "Trinity."

      Like other jewelry collections, Cartier's Trinity watches are designed specifically for women's wrists and have a case diameter of 27mm. While the original design is made up of intertwined bands of yellow, rose and white gold, the collection now also features designs in one color of gold. Available with a leather strap or a semi-circular chain metal bracelet, all are powered by Swiss-made quartz movements.

      Silver guilloché, mother-of-pearl and sometimes pavé diamond dials further reinforce the Cartier Trinity's position as a jewellery watch, and there are also models with diamond-set cases, either as a single band or covering the entire case, with diamond hour markers.

      Though the Cartier Trinity was designed almost 100 years ago, its design is contemporary and remains one of the most classic jewellery and watch designs.
