Ah, love. It's arguably the most inspiring concept in the arts.
Take music for instance. Just think of all the songs with the word "Love" in the title: "Love Me Tender," "The Lovecats," "Love in an Elevator," well, you get the point.
But it's also a major influence in jewelry. Um, heard of Cartier's Love Collection? Thought so.
Love Charity Ambassador Eva Mendes was on hand at the Cartier Mansion in NYC to announce the new Cartier Love Charity bracelet benefiting The Art of Elysium, a non-profit organization that encourages musicians, artists and actors to volunteer their time and talent to children who are battling serious medical conditions.

The new Love Charity bracelet features a mini Love bracelet in 18K rose gold with an inset diamond on knotted silk cord (navy for The Art of Elysium) and retails for $700, $150 going to one of 24 charities depending on the cord color you choose. Available at Cartier boutiques nationwide.
A little history on the Love bracelet: It's been around for over 30 years and in the past three years, Cartier has donated more that $4.5 million to 24 global charities from the sales of the Love Charity bracelet.
Jewelry that supports creativity, charity and children ... what's not to love?
