Chanel - The Beloved Camellia
The camellia is symbolic at Chanel. This un-scented and thorn-free flower, with its regular, almost symmetrical petals, which is highly valued in China due to its healing powers, became the emblem of Coco Chanel at the very start of her career. She liked to pin it to her dresses and to place it delicately on a fabric like a sort of accessory. Over the years the camellia hasn’t lost its value within the brand- it constantly appears in the ready to wear and couture collections designed by Karl Lagerfeld and has even been used as a pretext for a jewellery collection.

Chanel Jewellery demonstrates extraordinary craftsmanship with its precious and delicate jewels. The “Camellia Ajouré” collection proposes rings and earrings in 18 carat yellow gold and also set with diamonds. Sensual and discreet, they go perfectly with a soberly chic outfit or even with a sensual evening dress for a big event. The cuff-bracelet provides the final touch to an elegant wardrobe and will certainly become one of your favourite pieces of jewellery- to be worn for special occasions.
