Can you spot the lion?

Can you spot the lion?

Officially launching in July, ‘Sous le signe du lion’ (Under the Sign of the Lion) is Chanel’s latest fine jewelry collection. Having been a Leo and a lover of Venice, Coco Chanel favored the lion symbol and featured it in many forms over the years. There are 58 pieces in the collection and it leans heavily towards white diamonds and white metal, though there is some color to be found. The power of the lion is evident in the designs and represent the powerful woman that Chanel was. The collection is the first to be made at the Parisian headquarters new in-house jewelry atelier.

Pamela Love made a golden appearance on a runway (her third show) with yet another collaborator: Zadig & Voltaire. This time it was with a gold version of the snake ring first seen at Mara Hoffman, as well as thin gold chains. The two collaborated on a 5 piece collection called Wild Heart which will be available in Zadig & Voltaire stores worldwide this month.

Hermès showed their classic enamel bangles along with the most delicate possible gold chain necklaces and earrings. It’s a good look for a touch of shimmer, but also seemed like a bit more substance would have gone a long way with the heavy dark clothes.

Jardin de Camélias: Chanel Fine Jewelry Latest Collection

18k gold, diamond and lacquer ‘Camélia Coromandel’ ring

The camellia is a well known symbol of Chanel and it is the singular inspiration of the latest fine jewelry collection from the house. Presented during Paris Couture Week in January, the 90 pieces are a mix of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings and brooches that all feature the flower in varying ways. Some are purely white diamonds while others are a riot of color; there is surely something for everyone here. Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, watch the fantastic video on Chanel and diamonds here. It’s not to be missed.
