RUSSIAN COLLECTION OF VERY EXPENSIVE JEWELRY CHANEL
Fabulous jewelry tells about Coco Chanel’s tender love for Russia.
Gabrielle Chanel has never been to Russia. But I heard a lot about her: because of the aristocratic immigrants, Paris in the 20th century was practically Russian.
So Mademoiselle met Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev, with whom she had been friends for many years, as well as Prince Dmitry Pavlovich, a cousin of Nicholas II. In the latter, she fell in love with dizziness, and with him – in Russia.
This beautiful love story is told by the Le Paris Russe de Chanel jewelry collection. These are 67 high-quality products at once, divided into chapters.
The titles of some chapters speak for themselves – the jewelry Motif Russe (Russian Motives), Folklore (Folklore), Sarafane (Sarafan) and Roubachka (Shirt) echo the flavor of the national Russian costume.
Meanwhile, the chapters Aigle Cambon (“Eagle Cambon”), Medaille Solaire (“Sun Medal”) and Aigle Protecteur (“Protector Eagle”) are about imperial Russia. Here you have regal two-headed eagles, smart orders with medals, and the dazzling brilliance of balls.
And the most touching chapter of this brilliant story was named Foulard (“The Handkerchief”).
In 1967, the first ever Chanel show took place on Red Square in the USSR. Coco herself could not come. But her fashion models brought her a souvenir from Moscow – a Pavlovsk headscarf.
Chanel jewelers dedicated magnificent earrings, necklace, bracelet and Foulard ring made of yellow and white gold, platinum, onyx and enamel with tsavorite, garnet, spinel and diamonds to this colorful accessory.
