One item that hasn’t been in the limelight for awhile from the fashion company Chanel is their history with jewelry.
Coco Chanel was known for is her love of jewelry, which dates back as far as 1932, when Coco Chanel created her own bling with the "Bijoux de Diamants” collection.
This topic is explored in author Patrick Mauriès new book, “Les Bijoux de Chanel” (Chanel's Jewels) which will be released on October 14th.
The use of the precious jewels is further touched upon, as the book claims that the reason of the use of diamonds is due to Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel’s love of the stone.
This is evident in a famous quote of hers where she claimed that "If I have chosen diamonds, it is because they represent the highest value in the smallest volume." Indeed, Coco starred in a short film in that year, where she introduced her diamonds to the world.
The 80th anniversary of the collection was celebrated by the brand as a pop-up piece underneath the glass ceilings of Paris' Grand Palais, showcasing the dedication the company has to the glimmering jewels.
The book also goes into detail about the secret symbolism behind the brand’s motifs that most woman are not aware of. It also goes into depth about how Chanel has used diamonds throughout their history as a social status.
It doesn’t get more luxurious than owning a Chanel and adding a handbag from them is always number one top of the style game. A wonderful addition to any handbag collector is an authentic Chanel Double Flap.
The pre-owned Chanel flap promises that starry-eyed look from others by a polished edge. The soft lambskin exterior is in very versatile basic black puffed lambskin leather. The flap’s frame contains an open pocket on its back exterior.
The shoulder strap makes this used Chanel bag fashionably functional in black leather interwoven with a double gold tone chain link. Wear the Chanel several ways, whether cross-body, hand-held or over the shoulder.
Adorned on the front is the favorite CC logo turn clasp opening that is attached to the flap.
