It has been dusted with diamonds, turned into a bi-colour open ring, featured as a chunky medium-sized band, and has appeared as a cocktail ring that looks like it is made up of multiple stacks. So just how can Chanel reinvent the wheel when it comes to the classic bands from the flagship Coco Crush range which is noted for its curvaceous quilted motif? The answer, it seems, is to go back to the the basics.
The latest drop of the Coco Crush rings this month features six new band designs that have been shrunken to the slimmest and thinnest proportions in the collection’s short – but successful – five-year history. These miniature-sized pieces come in yellow gold, white gold, and the maison’s propriety beige gold, on top of versions for each colour that feature diamonds graphically set into the quilting pattern.
All that means a more subtle and timeless ring design that allows you to go big on stacking with your everyday jewellery. But the best bit in our opinion? The lean use of gold means prices are extremely pocket-friendly, starting from $1,800 for a full-on yellow gold piece. Now in this discretionary time and age, that is a big trump card for any jewellery house.
