Coco Chanel’s jewels were famously fake—and that’s the way she liked them. But in 1932, at the behest of France’s diamond industry, she created her one and only fine jewelry collection using white diamonds. The rare bijoux inspired Chanel Fine Jewelry’s newest creations, 80 pieces that use her original designs and favored motifs. Take the Constellation du Lion cuff, with its carved quartz figure (Chanel was a proud Leo), or the Soleil ring, which resembles her signature camellia. The fluid Franges bracelet adheres to her original concept: “My jewels are never designed in isolation from woman and her dress.” All jewelry prices available upon request; 800-550-0005.
