What becomes a legend most? If you had asked Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, perhaps she would have told you that it’s the ability to think outside of the box. And she did just that: Coco Chanel is known for having revolutionized fashion at a time when women’s style was dictated by the hourglass-figure look. Her response? Simple lines, less constricting silhouettes, unconventional fabrics, and what has become the ultimate hallmark of the house of Chanel: a quilted pattern, or “matelassé,” inspired by the equestrian world.
The house has taken the matelassé one step further with Coco Crush, a fine jewelry collection entirely dedicated to the pattern. Featuring rings, cuffs, earrings, and necklaces, the collection celebrates a contemporary, yet timeless, spirit that is so distinctly Chanel.
But it’s the rings that are among the standouts. Made in 18K white, yellow and beige gold, they are made to be mixed, matched and stacked. Dress them up or dress them down—either way, you’re bound to make a statement. And for that little extra oomph, opt for the diamond pavé details that will bring a sparkle to your summer style.
The Coco Crush fine jewelry collection from Chanel is now available at C.D. Peacock at Woodfield Mall.
