Chanel Fine Jewelry

Chanel Fine Jewelry (800.550.0005, www.chanel.com) did not have to look further than its own fashion archives to find the themes for its latest high-jewelry collection: The camellia pattern that appeared on Chanel’s clothes and handbags as far back as the 1940s served as the focal point of last fall’s all-diamond creations, which the house designed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the opening of its Place Vendôme salon. Although the 35 items in the collection also draw upon other familiar Chanel motifs, such as bows, comets, and stars, the versatile camellia device stands apart, enlivening both sleekly modern and more traditional pieces with its combinations of black and white diamonds.
