Since Chanel introduced the gold alloy it dubs beige gold for its J12 watch in 2014, the precious metal has become a hit. More of its fine jewellery and watch designs now sport that material. There’s good reason why: It’s a more subtle hue than yellow gold and looks less old-school compared to rose gold. This quality bodes well with one of the chicest jewellery ranges that Chanel launched last year: Coco Crush.
The line is all about modern classics, with thick bands of graphic rings and cuffs that are made to be worn everyday. The quilting pattern hints at the matelasse design that Gabrille Chanel first introduced in her 1920 couture show. Add to that the two new rings in beige gold – one in a medium size and one in a small size – and the collection becomes a must-have.
Also new to the Coco Crush range are two fully-paved diamond rings. After all, what’s more Chanel than diamonds? Mademoiselle Chanel sums it up neatly once: “I chose the diamond because its density represents the greatest value for the smallest size.” Imran Jalal gives you a sneak peek ahead of its launch next month.
