We received an invitation in our mailbox from The Real Real. They are having a sale on pre owned Cartier jewelry.
The “Master Pieces” sale is not just a sale on pre owned Cartier jewelry. There are other “fine jewelry favorites” from similarly prestigious brands.
The sale is said to feature “iconic designs like Rolex’s Datejust watch, Cartier’s LOVE rings and more sought-after styles”.
Of course Cartier jewelry is quite expensive even when pre owned. There’s nothing in the “Master Pieces” Cartier lot that we can afford.
The item prices range from $595 to $200,000.
Interesting note: The retail price of the $200,000 item (61.28ctw Cartier Diamond Necklace) is $400,000.
Can you imagine?
Here are our pre owned Cartier jewelry top picks from the lot…
This 18K yellow gold Cartier Penelope necklace with double C push-slide clasp will cost you $14,900. The estimated retail value is listed as $30,000.
Cartier Diamond Trinity Ring
This 18K yellow, rose and white gold Cartier Trinity rolling ring with pink, yellow and white pavé set diamonds will cost you $39,500. But you’ll need to have pencil thin fingers. This is a size 4 ring.
This is a $21,495 18K white gold Cartier Agrafe diamond set link necklace with hinged diamond clasp. The estimated retail price is $43,600.00
Comment Interruption: Does anyone really need such expensive jewelry though? Is it the prettiness of the thing or the prestigious price of the thing that matters? Because obviously you can get imitations of real gems that look pretty enough. Sure real diamonds are exciting (we guess), but why? They can’t really give you pleasure except in your mind.
