It really takes a brand like Chanel to remind us how simple luxury can be. In a world where it’s becoming difficult to feel delighted because we’re overstimulated by new fads, Chanel grounds us with classic fine jewelry. All the jewelry renders a nod to the quilt – which seamlessly weaves into the brand’s narrative.
Naturally, my first memory of the French label is my mother’s Chanel No. 5. A scent time-stamped with elegance in a rented apartment far from grace. These pieces share the same vain of becoming the new generation of heirlooms. Strangely enough, all my life I thought diamonds were stuffy and overrated, until I tried on my first set this evening. And let me tell you, it changes you.
A gentleman graciously suggests this beautiful necklace to compliment my red dress. And when I pondered towards try reflection, he was right. The way the diamond dripped down my collarbone felt weirdly remarkable. Yes, remarkable – remarkable in the way the diamonds glistened against the angles of my bone structure. Remarkable in the way the white gold immediately warmed and molded with my body temperature. In that moment, I understood why diamonds are a girl’s best friend. They have this ability to make you feel remarkable.
Luxury is a balance. And I learned that fine jewelry is wearable. It’s wearable poetry with a tattered t-shirt and it’s wearable class with a LBD.
Luxury is a balance. And I learned that fine jewelry is wearable. It’s wearable poetry with a tattered t-shirt and it’s wearable class with a LBD. So when the day comes to build my arsenal of investment jewelry, I can justify the purchase knowing it will be passed down from generation to generation.
