Important Chanel Renaissance Pendant Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is one of the more elaborate and unusual Chanel necklaces in this offering. Chanel again channels the splendor of the Renaissance with this exceptional necklace of cruciform links with a massive triple pendant. Formed of lozenges of tonal sapphire pate de verre and pastes,the scale almost seems theatrical in its extravagance.

Nonetheless always luxe, the cabochon effect of Gripoix's glasswork realistically imitates the cutting techniques for stones used in the Renaissance. Pastes are used to highlight the shape of each cruciform link and are scattered throughout the massive articulated pendant. Deep sapphire, cornflower sapphire and aquamarine pate de verre are used to create this collar with both regal and slightly ecclesiastical overtones.

29" with additional 6.25" pendant Pendant width: 2.75"
