Small Cartier diamond watches – every woman's desire! And why not? After all, in the words of Marlyn Monroe, "diamonds are a girl's best friend". That being so true, we're pulling out all the stops to help you find your best friend!

 

Understanding the small Cartier diamond watches

When figuring out which of the small Cartier diamond watches suits you best, we find the ideal place to start is to figure out just how much sparkle and shine you'd like on your watch. So, the question is – are you a diamond bezel woman or a diamonds everywhere woman? Since we don't want to dazzle you with the many options, we'll break them down into the bezel only vs. full cover pieces.

 

Diamond-encrusted Bezels

A diamond-encrusted bezel is a very classy way to give your watch a touch of elegance. When combined with a colorful strap, it also becomes a subtle expression of fun and flexibility that's perfect for social engagements. Alternatively, if it is set in a gold bracelet watch, the watch acquires an aura of delicate femininity and grace that goes well with more formal affairs like a corporate event or a charity fundraiser. So, let's explore what Cartier has to offer you and find the one that's meant for you!

 

Strap Watches

There are many options to choose from, across collections, when it comes to strap watches. The Tank Americaine Small model has round cut diamonds set in an elongated 18k pink gold case offset by a fabric strap, silver-grained dial and an 18k pink gold octagonal crown decorated with a diamond with an 18k gold adjustable deployant buckle. There is also a white gold version of this watch. The Tank Anglaise Small model (whose distinctive feature is a crown seamlessly embedded in the case) has brilliant cut diamonds set in an 18k pink gold case paired with a shiny claret red alligator leather strap with an 18k pink gold adjustable deployant buckle, flinqué silver lacquered dial and a nine-sided crown set with a brilliant-cut diamond. This watch is also available in yellow gold with a shiny aubergine alligator leather strap and in white gold with a shiny fuchsia alligator leather strap.

The ethereal Ballon Bleu de Cartier 28mm features round cut diamonds in an 18k pink gold case paired with an alligator-skin strap and an 18k gold double adjustable deployant buckle, rounded out by a silver opaline lacquered dial and an 18k pink gold fluted crown set with a blue sapphire cabochon. This watch is also available in a white gold avatar.

The Baignoire Mini model is set with round diamonds in an 18k pink gold elliptical case paired with a fabric strap, silver dial with sunray finish, 18K pink gold ardillon buckle, and a twelve-sided crown set with a diamond. The mini model is also available in a white gold setting. The Baignoire Small model, which is more petite, has round diamonds set in an 18k pink gold case, paired with a fabric strap, an 18k gold ardillon buckle, and a silver dial with a sun-like finish and an 18k pink gold octagonal crown set with a diamond.

When you want a diamond bezel, the Ronde Louis Cartier small pieces are available only in a strap form. This classic timepiece is available in an 18k pink gold case set with round cut diamonds, paired with a silver-grained dial, an 18k pink gold circular-grained crown decorated with a diamond, and an alligator-skin strap with an 18k old adjustable deployant buckle. If you prefer it with a little less color, you can take the white gold version of this watch.

Bracelet Watches

Many of the watches we've discussed are also available with a bracelet instead of a strap. The Tank Americaine small watches are available with an 18k pink gold and 18k white gold bracelet. Here, brilliant cut diamonds are set in a pink/white gold case with a matching bracelet, offset by a silver flinqué dial and an octagonal crown in 18K pink/white gold decorated with a brilliant-cut diamond. The Tank Anglaise small watches, on the other hand, give you three bracelet avatars - pink gold, white gold, and yellow gold. In these watches, brilliant cut diamonds are set in a pink/white/yellow gold case with a matching bracelet, paired with a silver and lacquered flinqué dial and a nine-sided crown set with a brilliant-cut diamond.
