Cartier Engagement Rings - Red is the color of love and so is the color of Cartier.
Such is the craze of Cartier rings that one look at the beautiful red box and girl knows it's Cartier in the heartbeat. Cartier has been there for more than 150 years and their dedication towards quality and aesthetically pleasing designs has always kept them at top of the bunch.
What's so unique about Cartier Engagement Rings?
I have come across so many people wondering what's so special about Cartier engagement rings that they have remain so popular even after so many years. Why such fascination for the red box?
One of the biggest reasons is, though Cartier has adhered to its classic 1895 solitaire collection, it has never stopped from re-inventing itself with continued focus on adapting to changing times.
Like, they were the first to introduce platinum in engagement rings. With platinum being a very hard metal, it enabled minimum use of metal in engagement rings. This allowed mounted diamonds to sparkle at their best because of less obstruction to passage of light through stone.
Also, they have everything for everyone featuring range of styles. Be it traditional or modern,
they offer everything from classical and vintage diamond engagement
rings to modern engagement rings. They cater to every need, and it
is almost unlikely you wouldn't find any engagement ring per your
taste and style - of course you should be ready to spend!

Cartier ERs were exclusive and extravagant and they still are. Unlike Tiffany engagement rings, their engagement rings have still not become available to masses. So, an aura of obscurity with sigh of luxury and glamor makes Cartier rings even more special.
What about Cartier Engagement Rings Designs?
If you compare engagement rings from similar luxury brands - like Harry Winston or Van Cleef and Arpels - you will not deny that Cartier designs are more intricate and intense (below image). While there is no compromise on quality of diamonds, they equally focus on design of ring bands as well. Different sizes of accent stones and geometrical shapes of band in pave setting lend the unique distinction to Cartier rings.
If you ask my personal favorite aspect of their designs, then it has to be the overall harmony among different elements - be it balance of color or bold geometrical shapes to create an elegantly appealing feminine engagement ring. As you can see in the below image, the ring uses three bold colored stones with each stone beautifully complementing and blending with each other.
Are Cartier Engagement Rings worth it?
Of course yes, if you have an obsession for brands and on a look-out for a luxurious engagement ring. Cartier is the epitome of wealth and lavish lifestyle. If your lady loves modern styles with a distinct classical taste then a Cartier ring can definitely add the dash of glamor to her style.
