Beat the price rises - Buy pre-loved

Cartier has been and continues to be the go-to jewellery brand for iconic pieces that never go out of style. The demand for classics such as the Love and Juste un Clou collections has never been so high, and we don’t suspect it will slow down anytime soon. Cartier’s CEO, Cyrille Vigneron, announced in May that the brand has raised its prices between 3 and 5 percent.

So, what does this mean for you? If you currently own Cartier jewellery, then you can rest assured the items will hold their value. And if you are looking to start a collection or purchase your first Cartier piece but don’t want to pay the new higher prices, then the pre-owned market is where you can find the perfect piece, without compromising on quality, whilst saving significantly on the RRP.  

What to look out for when buying pre-owned

When shopping on the pre-owned market, it’s important to know your seller. Only purchase with trusted sellers like Xupes who vet their items for provenance and authenticity.

Beat the price rises, buy pre-owned

With Cartier hiking their prices, it’s a no brainer to turn to the pre-owned market to purchase your desired item as opposed to buying new. Let’s take the classic gold or rose gold Cartier Love bangle as an example, new you can purchase one for £5,950 and the cost for a pre-owned bangle starts at £4,999, a saving of £951. We also have a finance partner allowing you to spread your payments monthly by purchasing through Splitit.
