Vintage Chanel Clip on Earrings – Gorgeous Gold Chanel Medallion Earrings
‘Let’s time travel back to the 1920s when the very first pieces of Chanel costume jewelry came to fruition. Gabrielle Chanel collaborated with jewelers and costume jewelry makers to bring about the best of both worlds into her creations. Always one to mix things up, she loved to combine real with faux, wearing precious stones with costume jewellery. “Costume jewelry isn’t made to provoke desire, just astonishment at most. It must remain an ornament and an amusement,” Gabrielle Chanel would say. Since then, jewelry became the complement to a silhouette, a signature accessory that to this day remains essential to the Chanel allure.’ ~ Harper’s Bazaar
These superb Chanel earrings measure approx. 1.5″ in diameter. They both have ’31 Rue Cambon Paris’, the address of the famous Parisian Chanel boutique, signed on both sides. They would make an excellent gift for Chanel lovers and are in excellent vintage condition with the original plastic pads for comfort.
