Chanel has presented its latest high jewelry collection: Les Talismans de Chanel. Featuring a dazzling array of precious gemstone and diamond designs, the collection is inspired by the mythical and protective powers of the talisman.
A talisman is an object believed to contain magical and sacred powers. Combining Chanel symbolism with the talismanic power of set gemstones and diamonds, this new collection is a tour de force. A focus of the collection is the quatrefoil pattern that recalls the Chanel camellia – a flower with which Gabrielle ‘Coco’ had great love. Incorporating a mix of Japanese cultured pearls, multi-colored lacquer, sapphires and enamel, the shapes revealed echo both geometric and natural forms.
A piece for every taste and emotion, take for example the “Fascinante” necklace in 18-carat white gold set with a 2-carat pear-cut diamond, 2 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total weight of 1.3 carat and 713 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total weight of 19.5 carats and enamel. The necklace also features camellias on blue enamel set with diamonds. Or regard in awe the “Hynotique” necklace set in 18-carat white and yellow gold set with a 10.5-carat brilliant-cut blue violet tanzanite, a 1-carat brilliant-cut diamond and 468 brilliant cut diamonds.
These jewelry creations are at once mesmerizing and mysterious, they fascinate the viewer and the wearer through the power of their alluring gemstones and fine design.
