Best of the Best 2012: Jewelry: Innovator: Chanel Fine Jewelry

Jill Newman

Leave it to a fashion house to see fine jewelry through a different lens: Without the constraints of a jewelry heritage, Chanel Fine Jewelry created a series of daring new designs with its 2011 Constrastes collection. All of the pieces feature an arabesque pattern of diamonds set in chunks of rock crystal—a technical feat that causes the diamonds to appear to float within the crystal. Set in white gold, this stunning bracelet’s (price upon request) 555 round-cut diamonds and 30 emerald-cut diamonds nearly dance around the wrist. (800.550.0005, www.chanel.com)
