TWEED DE CHANEL
Imagine the impossible, make it a reality. This is the challenge the CHANEL Fine Jewellery Creation Studio embraces with each new collection. Like translating the House’s lightweight, contrasting emblematic tweed into High Jewellery, making it as supple and sensual as the fabric that inspired it.
TWEED ROYAL NECKLACE
The result of 2,400 hours of work, this piece is a technical feat. The incredibly flexible weave of the gemstone tweed intertwines yellow gold with an exceptional array of rubies and diamonds. At the centre of the necklace presides the head of a lion, the symbol of CHANEL High Jewellery. Detachable, it can be worn alone as a brooch. The central pear-cut diamond can also be removed and set in a ring.
Fashioning a 3-dimensional tweed by setting the entire piece with stones. Playing with the uniqueness and the sparkle of diamonds, sapphires and rubies. Letting emotion lead. Bringing together the symbols of CHANEL, tweed takes on a narrative quality and weaves 5 stories: those of the ribbon, the camellia, the comet, the sun and the lion.
Patrice Leguéreau, Director of the CHANEL Fine Jewellery Creation Studio, expresses tweed like never before: a pattern of precious gemstones that lies on the body with the fluidity of fabric.
TWEED LION EARRINGS
A pair of asymmetrical earrings that weaves together 2 stories. On one side, harmonious tweed highlighted by a vibrant-red marquise-cut ruby. On the other, a lion enhanced by a striking-red marquise-cut ruby.
TWEED PÉTALE RING
A toi et moi ring that combines a camellia and an intense pink sapphire surrounded by white diamonds.
TWEED CAMÉLIA NECKLACE
An extraordinary cascade of gradated pink sapphires lends intensity to this cravat necklace. Set at the centre of the tweed pattern, a detachable camellia in white gold stands out from the rest of the piece.
A TECHNICAL FEAT
Creating a gemstone tweed that defies precedent at CHANEL, reinterpreting the interwoven threads and achieving a reverse side as beautiful as the front.
TWEED MADEMOISELLE NECKLACE
A creation that evokes the allure of Gabrielle Chanel, who illuminated her outfits with strands of pearls. Here, instead of pearls, are 5 rows of diamonds, including a dazzling central row of 22 oval-cut stones. On the side of the necklace, a tweed ribbon recalls another signature element of CHANEL style.
A DELIBERATE CHOICE
Allowing the simplicity of emotion to take precedence over technical complexity, and enabling the pieces to tell a new story of High Jewellery.
TWEED MADEMOISELLE RING
Both voluminous and airy, this ring plays with contrasts by uniting an intricate lacework of oval-cut, marquise-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds with a precious asymmetrical ribbon.
TWEED PASTEL BRACELET
A bracelet as flexible as a ribbon, delicately interwoven with gemstones to resemble tweed fabric. The fringed motif, created with marquise-cut and oval-cut diamonds, highlights the central stone. A texture that imposes movement on the cultured pearls.
TWEED BYZANCE BRACELET
A remarkably graphic bracelet featuring a tweed pattern made of beryls and diamonds. Faceted beryls for intensity and box-set diamonds for sparkle weave a link with yellow gold around the sun-shaped clasp.
Rising to the challenge of creating incomparably supple pieces by drawing on the savoir-faire of enamelling.
TWEED BYZANCE BROOCH
With an absolute graphic richness, this brooch represents the sun. The gem-set yellow gold star rests on a tweed of beryls and diamonds. Box-set diamonds shine with light, while faceted beryls provide vivid colour.
TWEED ASTRAL RING
A spectacularly grand ring with intense, deep blue sapphires concealing a starry motif.
