Among the firm's most recognizable creations, Trinity jewels are truly iconic examples from the house of Cartier. Set with pink, yellow and white gold representing love, fidelity and friendship, they were true avant-garde representations of minimalism when the collection was first created by Louis Cartier in 1924. Trinity jewels were favored by some of Cartier's most loyal clients including artist Jean Cocteau, who wore two trinity rings stacked on his pinkie finger throughout most of his life. This particular pair of earrings represent the most classic iteration of the trinity design and show a casual elegance rarely matched in jewelry today.
