Vintage Chanel Gripoix Cuff
This is a rare and sensational example of Chanel's co-operation with the house of Gripoix. The cuff has an amazing centrepiece of a large central deep red cab surrounded by an array of smaller cabs in round, oval and teardrop shapes. These smaller cabs are in a melange of Renaissance colours such as emerald green, amethyst, sapphire blue, topaz and ruby red. They change colour wonderfully as they catch the light! The bangle part of the cuff, and the setting for the stones, is in a satin goldtone, with a lightly hammered effect finish.
The internal measurement of the cuff is 5 1/2" (14 cms) plus a 1" gap for slipping on the wrist, thus the cuff is good for wrists of less than 6 1/2". Cuff is 1 3/8" deep (3.5 cms). The Gripoix element measures 2 1/4" by 2" (6 cms by 4.5 cms).
Signed and dated on plaque on inside of cuff. From season 29 (early 1990's).
All gripoix stones intact. There are some minor marks on the satin finish (not visible when worn), otherwise this so rare cuff is in excellent condition.
