The universal ring that symbolizes love, friendship, and life's milestones has been reinvented many times — wider bands, multiplied up to 10 rings intertwined, fluted, faceted, and gadrooned. For the anniversary, Cartier has reissued the XL bracelet first released in 1924 and famously worn by Elsie de Wolf. A modular version of the Trinity allows the wearer to fuse the three bands together for a discreet daytime look, then unravel the bands to reveal the diamonds at night.
