I recently shared my love letter to the CHANEL Haute Couture F/W 15/16 collection and I would be remiss in not sharing the High Jewelry collection the House also showed during the week of Paris Couture shows. Be prepared for more waxing poetic over the beauty that is CHANEL because this collection of fine jewelry is truly spectacular.
Titled LES TALISMANS DE CHANEL the collection is an intoxicating mix of diamonds, sapphires, Japanese cultured pearls, multi-colored lacquer and enamel set in white and yellow gold. These precious sets of jewels are both powerful and magnetic in their beauty. Styled around a quatrefoil pattern, the eye is drawn to the center of each piece. When one closely examines the pieces they can not help but see some of CHANEL’s most iconic imagery woven into them. From Mademoiselle Chanel’s beloved camellia flower delicately done in enamel to the seemingly Maltese cross inspired settings, LES TALISMANS DE CHANEL is a captivating collection of some of the most stunning pieces created in the contemporary world of fine jewelry.
