Large clear paste and emerald poured glass 'bow' necklace, Chanel, 1980s

About

This stunning, classic necklace is made from clear pastes, in gilt metal settings, with a large paste bow as the centrepiece, from which hangs a large emerald poured glass drop. It is a perfect example of the long collaboration between Chanel and Maison Gripoix, one of the first and longest collaborators with Coco Chanel , in the creation of costume jewellery, sadly no longer. The matching earrings are also listed on our storefront. 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.
