Chanel Signature Collections
It is hard to conjure a vision of Gabrielle Chanel without picturing her adorned with jewels. Jewelry is intrinsic to Mademoiselle’s style and it is inherent to CHANEL’s vernacular, and the codes set forth by Mademoiselle, inform the high jewelry creations made today.
In 1932, Gabrielle Chanel would create her first and only high jewelry collection, her creations defined by five codes: feathers, the fringe, the ribbon, the sun, and the stars.
The lion is the talisman for CHANEL jewelry, representing Gabrielle Chanel, born August 19, 1883, under the sign of the Leo.
The camellia, a decorative element so used by Mademoiselle, transcends its status of flower, to become an icon of CHANEL.
