In Paris, there are works of art to be marvelled all around; Jean Chalgrin’s Arc de Triomphe, André Le Nôtre’s Champs-Élysées, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa – the list goes on. In fashion – in the French capital, anyway – it was Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel who played the master sartorial architect by revolutionising the way a woman dressed. The designer spotlighted the would-be iconic quilted two-piece set, a patchwork that represented sophistication and would go on to stand as a permanent staple for the storied brand. Today, that quilted motif extends to the Chanel’s Coco Crush jewellery line, namely its rings. In beige gold, yellow gold or white gold – and with or without diamonds – the rounded contours of the Coco Crush ring (and alternating incisions that replicate that quilted pattern) make for a bold yet feminine keepsake for a collector looking for a classic piece of art.
