I’ve selected my favorite pieces from Chanel’s Coromandel collection.
Coco Chanel said that when she looked at her Coromandel screens in the evening she saw doors opening and knights setting off on horseback. When I look at this jewelry in the morning I see Spring in the Loire Valley, or even Provence.
The motifs so dear to Coco Chanel are reworked beautifully in these gems. I’ve selected a few very special pieces from Chanel’s Coromandel collection for this post. They are a mesmerizing blend of the architectural, art deco, contemporary and they also say Spring has sprung!
The Fleur de Nacre and Horizon Lointain earrings are, and I use this word carefully, unique. The mineral theme of Horizon Lointain ring has the same well balanced design and the Vibration Minerale pieces are so playful and, well, alive. They hum with life. A beautiful blend of timeless savoir-faire of the Chanel Fine Jewelry workshop with the vigour of youth.
