Chanel, Collection N°5
To celebrate 100 years of Chanel's iconic N°5 perfume, Patrice Leguéreau, director of Chanel's Fine Jewellery Creation Studio, has created the 55.55 necklace, starring a central 55.55-carat custom-cut diamond. “We started with a rough diamond that we had cut, to obtain a perfect octagonal diamond weighing 55.55 carats,” explained Leguéreau.
Surrounding the stone with 18k white gold bezel, which was also set with round and baguette diamonds, these expensive elements come together to form a show-shopping silhouette of the iconic Chanel N°5 perfume bottle. With cascading pear-shaped diamonds, each individually cut to different sizes dripping down to embody the trailing sillage of the beloved Chanel scent, the necklace is a testament to the French brand's craftsmanship and dedication to the art of jewellery making.
