The history of CHANEL Fine Jewelry began one evening in 1932. At her mansion in the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Mademoiselle Chanel exhibited her first collection built around the two themes of the Comet and the diamond.
When CHANEL revived this activity in 1993, the collection paid homage to its origins in the form of reproductions and reinterpretations of the first pieces from the "Bijoux de Diamant" collection.
In 1997, the acquisition of one of the finest mansions in the Place Vendôme (situated at Number 18 in the famous square) and the creation of the Fine Jewelry & Watches Boutique seemed the natural conclusion to a secret itinerary that led Mademoiselle Chanel from her Faubourg Saint-Honoré home to the Rue Cambon and then on to the Ritz.
This move also marked CHANEL's appearance alongside its peers, the greatest names in jewelry, in the strategic heart from which luxury radiates throughout the world. CHANEL Fine Jewelry demonstrates its coming of age through its constantly renewed creativity, forged around the fundamental symbols of the universe of Mademoiselle.
In this 21st century, CHANEL constantly projects itself into the future after the manner of its founder, who used to say: "I want to be associated with what is yet to come." In this way, CHANEL rolls back the frontiers of luxury.
Behind the elegant facade designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, a new Boutique now develops the major themes first proposed at that original exhibition at the CHANEL mansion.
CHANEL Fine Jewelry creations are made from the most precious materials and the rarest stones.
18K gold, which is gold of a millesimal fineness of 750, is the purest alloy used in jewelry.
All CHANEL Fine Jewelry pieces are in either 18K gold or Platinum 950.

In its constant search for perfection, CHANEL Fine Jewelry includes in the diamond selection process an examination by an expert gemologist who takes the time to examine each gem. In this way, CHANEL Fine Jewelry offers exceptional diamonds that are among the finest in the world.
Diamonds come in a variety of colors, ranging from the so-called "colorless", whose coloration is classified in accordance with an internationally recognized scale, to those rarer cases of diamonds with clearly-defined colors, such as yellow, blue, pink, Champagne, black or green.
A diamond's quality depends on the perfect combination of 4 criteria, known as "the 4Cs", which are subject to endless variations that make each stone unique.
The clarity of a diamond is determined by the number and the size of visible inclusions in the stone.
Ideal diamonds are generally distinguished by the absence of color. Thus the more colorless a diamond is, the rarer and more precious it is.
An international standard attributes the letter "D" to totally colorless diamonds, with the remaining letters used to measure tints appearing in the stone.
The cut is the element which enhances a diamond's qualities, thus revealing its incomparable brilliance. Excellent proportions combined with perfectly symmetrical facets enable light to be captured and to reveal the carefully-selected stone's true brilliance.
The word "carat" refers to the seeds of the carob tree, used in Antiquity to measure the weight of a diamond, and has been the international standard unit of measurement since 1907. A carat is equivalent to 0.20 grams.
Schéma 1 : Clarity
Schéma 2 : Color
Schéma 3 : Carat (poids)
For each centre diamond of a weight equivalent to or greater than 0.25 carats, CHANEL Fine Jewellery provides a certificate issued by the internationally renowned laboratory of the GIA (Gemological Institute of America).(In exceptional cases, certain certificates are issued by the HRD: "Hoge Raad voor Diamant").
This certificate is a veritable identity card for each stone, indicating its composition in terms of the 4Cs, but also providing a body of supplementary information attesting to the exceptional quality of a CHANEL Fine Jewellery diamond.
CHANEL Fine Jewellery encourages respect for strict ethical standards in terms of sourcing.
All diamonds sold in CHANEL Fine Jewellery Boutiques come from legal sources, in full compliance with the certification system of the Kimberley Process, as defined by the United Nations.
Under the guarantee system instituted by this process, each partner undertakes to provide a certificate attesting in writing that the diamonds are sourced from non-conflict countries.
This particular vigilance helps ensure the credibility of the diamond trade, eradicating the circulation of stones from countries in situations of armed conflict.
