Ruby poured glass and gilt metal earrings, Goossens for Chanel, France, 1960s.

About

Classic and highly wearable, these beautiful early Chanel ruby poured glass and gilt earrings, made by Maison Goossens, Chanel's celebrated collaborator and facilitator, radiate inherent style and quality for any wearer or collector. Not much needs to be said about Coco Chanel, so famous and successful a designer is she! Chanel opened her first boutique in 1924, many years in advance of what was to become a worldwide and continuing fashion. Whilst many disapproved of costume jewellery , praising fine or real jewellery, Chanel championed the merits of faux jewellery, often mixing both together, stating that real jewellery would no more enhance the wearer that faux! This supremacy of costume jewellery over real continued all through her career, (all of which is now legendary,through numerous books and films.), continuing right through to the creations of the house in the current day.
