CHANEL HIGH JEWELLERY SIGNATURE
In 1932, Gabrielle Chanel introduces her first and only jewellery collection, Bijoux de Diamants, breaking with the codes of traditional jewellery. The famous star, the stones fitting the design of the jewel, the word “collection” borrowed from fashion or the use of wax figures for a natural display of the jewels. This vision of jewellery, this daring and this unique creativity are still as present today.
In 1932, Gabrielle Chanel would create her first and only High Jewellery collection, her creations defined by five codes: fringe, ribbon, feathers, the sun and stars.
