What makes a piece of jewellery iconic? Not many designs can boast this accolade, but the Cartier LOVE bracelet – one of the earliest examples of which features in London's Fine Jewels sale – is easily worthy of this title. Firstly, it resonates with the era in which it was created – in 1969, New York, when the city was at the height of the hippie movement.

Secondly Cipullo realised that this demographic was open to the idea of a new, contemporary love token that owed little to traditional jewellery expressions of the time.
