Pearls, crystals and chains - thanks to Coco #Chanel, costume #jewellery became a coveted, chic, iconic, elegant and stylish accessory.
Originally inspired by the opulent, costly jewels and pearls gifted to her by her aristocratic lovers, Chanel raided her own jewel vault and partnered with Duke Fulco di Verdura to launch a House of Chanel jewellery line. A white enamelled cuff featuring a jewelled Maltese cross was Chanel's personal favourite and has become an iconic piece representative of the Verdura Chanel collaboration.
Her statement was: "It's disgusting to walk around with millions around the neck because one happens to be rich. I only like fake jewellery … because it's provocative."
