Vintage Chanel Necklace with Gripoix and Pearl Pendants
This is an incredible necklace from Chanel! It is very rare and evokes the period when Coco herself was designing jewellery inspired by the Renaissance and Byzantine art. It has two amazing metallic discs decorated in a medieval style and with raised pearls and glass cabochons in amethyst, ruby and emerald. The chain is etched and has double sided red cabochon charms set along its length. Finally a large amethyst tear shaped cabochon completes the drop. The detailing is amazing, truly a work of art!
Total length of drop is 5.75", largest disc is 2" across. Total length of chain is 18".
Signed and dated on plaque on reverse of larger disc. From 1985.
This exceptional necklace is in excellent condition.
Comes with Chanel box.
