These outstanding oversized golden double Camellia flower dangles are a true Masterpiece. The Camellia theme runs throughout CHANEL’S history. Never was the flower elevated to such a golden moment in both scale and detail. Massive three-dimensional brilliant camellias that can be seen from across the room. Four spectacularly carved blooms with realistic petals are the ultimate Coco Chanel jewel. Sublimely pristine as shiny and gleaming as the day they were made. Your jewelry box will thank you!
Gabrielle Chanel was seduced by the camellia. A flower of simplicity and purity with no fragrance nor thorns, it was akin to the ethos of Mademoiselle. She preferred the camellia’s sobriety and geometric roundedness, with a classic and consistent ordering of the petals, intelligible yet beautiful, like the woman that she was.
In 1913, on the beach of Étretat, France, Coco Chanel was photographed with a camellia fastened to her waistband – a white camellia that became one of her emblems. With her taste for opposites, she would wear it in stark contrast against a little black dress. Soon, it would adorn clothes, belts, bags, shoes, and jewelry transcending its status as a flower to become the icon of CHANEL.
