On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…something from the Cartier Trinity collection.
Again, I am trying to help, and this time, my suggestion comes in triplicate. In 1924, Cartier introduced the Trinity ring – three interlocking bands of gold in three colors, white, yellow, and rose. Jean Cocteau, the multi-talented man of letters, adopted the ring as a pinkie adornment and it was officially embraced by the fashionable set in Paris. The collection has been expanded to include bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, either plain, accented with diamonds or completely diamond covered. Again, Santa darling, just keep things simple with a classic ring or bracelet. This girl doesn’t need more diamonds when she’s got you.
Today’s expression, battre le pavé (battruh luh pavay) literally means “to beat (or hit) the pavement,” in other words, to have to work really hard, or search diligently for something. It is inspired by the word pavé, which refers to a jewelry setting that is completely covered, or paved, in diamonds or other gems. Santa doesn’t have to hit the pavement searching for great gift ideas for me. He can just keep following my blog. Aren’t I considerate?
For all 12 days of Christmas:
