Chanel Necklaces & Pendants

The Chanel design house is the epitome of classic chic. With the launch of her first independent hat boutique in the heart of Paris in 1910, Coco Chanel quickly rose in popularity among the French elite. Though at the time she was limited to millinery alone (a nearby dress shop precluded her chance at expanding into fashion), her immediate success allowed her to soon after open a new clothing boutique.

Though Coco Chanel had been producing costume jewels to accompany her ensembles since the 1920s, she elevated the status of the brand in 1932 with the introduction of her “Bijoux des Diamantes” collection in Paris. Featuring starburst and bow tie necklace designs enveloped in diamonds, Chanel established her brand as the beacon for fine jewelry as well as fine fashion. Her jewelry blends breathtaking beauty with timeless class.

Chanel jewelry still today strives to maintain both the quality workmanship and classic motifs that Coco herself established decades ago. Still espousing her spirit, Chanel necklaces celebrate their origins within one of the most iconic design houses of the 20th century while also ensuring their own celebrity for generations to come.


Quick Facts

  • Harper’s Bazaar magazine hailed Chanel’s initial jewelry collection debut in 1924 as “one of the revolutionary designs of our time”
  • Chanel is also credited with reviving the little black dress. Debuting her cut in a 1926 Vogue magazine article, Chanel’s LBD became one of the hottest fashion trends (and, of course, it looked spectacular with a strand of pearls)
  • Chanel necklaces often also feature starbursts enveloped with diamonds. This theme hearkens back to her initial Diamantes collection but also to her youth at an orphanage in France, where a portion of the pavement had been rendered in mosaic to resemble stars
