The video starts with the CHANEL Fine Jewelry logo, it then displays the title of the video “N°5 Collection The 55.55 Necklace”. The whole necklace appears and is shown from every angle. First it its entirety, rotating from top to bottom. Next, we can see the smaller details of the pendant and the stones that make up the necklace, especially the center diamond that is set with 55.55 carats. The video ends with a shot of the whole necklace, followed by the CHANEL Fine Jewelry logo.

The Stopper

“The stopper’s shape recalls that of Place Vendôme, a signature visual throughout the collection.”

— Patrice Leguéreau

Paris is the city of CHANEL, and at the heart of Paris is Place Vendôme, whose geometric qualities are perhaps best recognized as the shape of the N°5 stopper. Cut to exacting proportions and used throughout the collection, emerald-cut diamonds fashioned to the precise ratio of Place Vendôme create a striking visual motif, replete with the architectural detail of the corners graphically omitted—a signature of the CHANEL identity.

When she applies her perfume, a woman holds the substantial weightiness of the N°5 stopper intimately in her hand—a relationship now captured in High Jewelry. Patrice Leguéreau, Director of the Fine Jewelry Creation Studio and designer of this collection, says, “I use emerald-cut diamonds in different positions, sometimes as the stopper sitting on the bottle, but also, with a twist of the wrist, as though the cap has been removed.” A grand paradox, the geometric stopper of the N°5 bottle is removed to reveal the ultimate femininity—a duality translated into five High Jewelry styles.

N°5 Collection The Stopper

A film of Savoir-faire: The Stopper

The film starts with the CHANEL Fine Jewelry logo, followed by the title “N°5 Collection The Stopper”. Patrice Leguéreau, director of the CHANEL Fine Jewelry Creative Studio, designs creations from the N°5 collection. Inspired by the stopper of the N°5 bottle, the diamonds are all cut in the same octagonal shape as that of Place Vendôme, the historic center of CHANEL Fine Jewelry. The video ends with the CHANEL Fine Jewelry logo.

Some designs are effervescent with cultured pearls—seawater cultures that emulate Aldehyde compounds, a transformative element of the N°5 formula—while graphic forms of transparent rock crystal become wearable versions of the stopper. Exceptional savoir-faire wraps other styles in undulating ribbons of precious metal and gemstones, and emerald-cut yellow sapphires are all aglow like Place Vendôme in sunlight.
