Chanel Celebrates 90 Years Of High Jewelry With New Coffee Table Book

To mark the 90 years since Gabrielle Chanel launched her first diamond designs, a new book titled “ Chanel Haute Joaillerie” is slated for release in December.

The 528-page volume retraces the house’s high jewelry creations, from Gabrielle Chanel ’s first diamond jewelry in 1932 to contemporary pieces.

Another highlight is the55.55 necklace, with its perfect octagonal-shaped diamond weighing exactly 55.55 carats, a design marking the centenary last year of the house’s famed No.5, and which is now part of Chanel’s patrimonial collection.

Over the course of four chapters and 528 pages, the origins, symbols, spirit and allure of the house’s designs are explored through texts and images drawn from the Chanel archives, including preparatory sketches and photographs.
