Beauty can be created from the simplest things. Take the humble nail, as luxury jeweller Cartier has done, recreate it in fine gold and diamonds and you have the stunning Juste un Clou – “just a nail” – range of jewellery.

According to the brand, the first “nail” bracelet was created by Aldo Cipullo for Cartier New York in the 1970s; a theme sourced by the crazy days of disco and the iconic Studio 54. Ahead of its time, this classic piece of conceptual jewellery remains totally current for 2012.

Now available in yellow, white or pink gold or with pave diamonds in a range of sizes, a Juste un Clou piece becomes as versatile as its wear, seeming at times a rhythmic spiral, a simple bangle or a bold statement about the world.

The range is now wider than the original single bangle offering; there are rings, earrings, slim bangles and thicker “cuff-like” pieces as well.

In tandem with the relaunch of the Juste un Clou collection, Cartier has joined in the world’s current obsession with all things Korean by tapping hot actress, singer, entertainer and model, Eun Yoon Eye (pictured below).

Debuting with girl group Baby VOX, she is now more known for her acting, including the super popular Coffee Prince drama where she plays central character Go Eun-Chan. In the photos for the Cartier Juste un Clou collection, Eun Yoon Eye’s look is a far cry from the tomboy she played in the drama.

Like the Korean star, the delicate lines of the Cartier Juste un Clou collection is offset by the ruggedness of the original concept – it’s a mix of girly and tomboy. You can be a little bit punk and a lot princess with these pieces, making them perfect for the individual in all of us.
