81 DAYS TO GO. In her usual, casual, playful manner, Regine Velasquez told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), in an interview last October 15, that she doesn't want gifts for Christmas.
“Kaya ko kasing bilhin, e. Mayaman ako, ‘te!” She quipped.
But kidding aside, the down to earth Asia’s Songbird hopes to receive something quite fancy.
“Siguro I want, kasi I’ve been eyeing this, iyong Cartier Love na bangle.”
A perfect gift for wives or girlfriends, this piece of accessory has long gained the admiration of many Hollywood personalities, including Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Weisz, Eva Mendez, and Olivia Wilde.
In the Philippines, celebrities like Lucy Torres-Gomez and Heart Evangelista have also been spotted sporting the metal arm candies.
The bangle is part of Cartier’s LOVE collection, which has an aesthetic inspired by the ‘70s hippie era.
It has become a “symbol of love” for many couples, because of its screw motif.

It comes with an ergonomic screwdriver, which the husband or the boyfriend is supposed to keep as a symbol of his devotion—that is after he puts the bangle on his woman's wrist, which is also symbolic of her submission to her man.
The standard issue is made with 18-Karat yellow gold, and is also available in rose gold, white gold, and platinum; as well versions encrusted with diamonds.
The Cartier LOVE collection also includes chain link and cuff-type bracelets.
