A special 9k chain featuring one of the most coveted Victorian links, the interlocked Cs, which would go on to become the iconic Chanel logo. Pre-dating the formation of the brand by 3 decades (Chanel was trademarked in 1910,) the 9k blush pink of this example beautifully offsets the silhouette of Cs. With faceted finishes and a beautiful hallmark tag, this chain is an excellent exercise in the idea that there is nothing new under the sun in the world of design.
