About

In this necklace the play of multi-toned layered baroque gilt caps against shiny gilt spheres creates an interesting dynamic. This Chanel series was well documented and sold in the period. Combinations of the rich, textural metalwork mixed with smooth(metal) or tumbled (pate de verre) elements helped to create the elegant french signature of her accessories.

There is often a reference to antique jewelry in many of her pieces, one of her favorites being the Renaissance period.
