CHANEL BIRDCAGE Maison Gripoix Glass, Glass Pearl Clip-On Earrings
Ravishing Gripoix glass and crystal jeweled bird in flight sheltered within a gilt cage topped with a glass pearl finial. All Gripoix glass jewelry was artisanal and made entirely by hand using the same techniques since 1868. CHANEL embellished their exquisite jewels with the Maison Gripoix’s beads, cabochons, and coated pearls. The vintage CHANEL jewels made by Gripoix are very valuable and so coveted worldwide.
This iconic symbol of the caged bird by Maison CHANEL was turned into a short film starring Vanessa Paradis by Jean-Paul Goude in 1991. Mademoiselle Chanel had kept a charming small bejeweled birdcage on her coffee table in her Parisian apartment on the rue Cambon. Among her eclectic collection of trinkets, her jeweled birdcage which housed two lovebirds was her favorite. The vibrant emerald and ruby-hued hand-poured Gripoix glass embellish this exquisite bird who seems frozen for eternity in his splendid golden refuge.
Similar versions of this famous vintage CHANEL earring have been worn by an endless list
of celebrities including Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and supermodel Kaia
Gerber just to name a few. However, this jeweled Gripoix glass birdcage is a VERY RARE and unique earring and the penultimate CHANEL MASTERPIECE!
