Celebrating eighty years of Chanel jewelry from the iconic 1932 designs to the new 2012 anniversary collection.
Coco Chanelâs passion for fabulous jewels, exceptional stones and improbable marvels produced pieces that were unparalleled in their insistence on luxury and refinement. She reinvented tradition, drawing inspiration from her love of color and her assured command of austere classical beauty. A creature of contrasts, Chanel constructed a dialogue between ostentation and austerity, creating jewelry that has been celebrated time and time again.
From the direct re-creations of the 1932 Collection to the newest interpretations of comets and stars, plumes and feathers, and Chanelâs signature flower, the camellia, Jewelry by Chanel is true to the spirit of her enterprise. Classic images from the archives combined with exciting new photography bring old and new together in breathtaking black and white.
