    The Most Googled Piece Of Jewelry 2016

    Posted on January 6th, 2017 by Joe G

    A study conducted by Karus Chains earlier this year discovered that more than 353,000 searches had been conducted for ‘Cartier Love bracelet’ on Google each month, making it the most popular piece of jewelry on the internet. The Cartier Love bracelet was miles ahead of the second most-wanted piece, which was a ‘Tiffany & Co. engagement ring’, with just over 85,000 monthly searches.


    The most popular jewelry item on the internet carries a large price tag of over $19,000. The love collection remains an iconic symbol of love that transgresses convention. The oval shape, screw motifs, and elegance establish a timeless piece that gives tribute to passionate romance. Cartier first sold the bracelet as unisex pairs back in 1969. It was a statement necklace for the “make love, not war” generation, designed for men and women who were in love, regardless of their marriage status.


    Cartier cleverly arranged a marketing stunt for its launch where they gave  25 celebrity couples a matching set. The idea of screwing yourself into the bangle with the solid-gold screwdriver was new and exciting. The Love bracelet captured the hearts of long-time Cartier clients such as the Duchess of Windsor and Elizabeth Taylor and also attracted new ones such as movie stars Julie Andrews.
    Over the last few years, the number of celebrities sporting the bangles has increased greatly and the Love bracelet has remained a symbol of status and style. In 2016 celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz, and Kylie Jenner have been seen wearing the Love bracelet.

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
