Comete.. Chanel 2013…

Chanel Fine Jewellery is one of the closest things fashion has to art. A great piece of art isn’t just something that looks good to the eye, it has to be thought provoking, emotive and the execution of the initial designs need to be perfectly accurate. Even though I haven’t seen the original designs, I feel I can draw the conclusion that these pieces from Chanel have been crafted with great precision.

The detail and creativity in these pieces are something to be celebrated. I’d strongly advise you take your own time to filter through all of the photos from this collection. The layout on the Chanel website allows the jewellery to shine and adds to the grandeur of the Chanel label. I found some of the Gabrielle Chanel quotes to be a little tacky, but after the worldwide success Chanel has enjoyed, I suppose they are allowed to toot their own horn a little.

The different sections that make up the 80th Anniversary Chanel High Jewellery collection are titled: Comete, Soleil, Ruban, Franges and Constellation du Lion. Furthermore, each section then contains its own pieces inside, so there is plenty for you to look at. My Favourite would be the Comete.
