The Details...

This gold plated bracelet features 4 crinkle edged ovals detailed with Dior’s signature ‘cannage’ design in two alternating styles (one large, open weave and one fine, closed weave). The bracelet fastens with a lobster claw clasp. The bracelet is signed. Next to the clasp, there is a signature 'CD' logo charm. This is engraved with 'Chr.Dior' and a copyright symbol. The reverse of one of the bracelet's panels is stamped with this mark too. The bracelet measures 17cm. 

A Short History...

This bracelet is an excellent example of Christian Dior's dazzling, yet wearable, jewellery from the 1980s. It is a must for fans of the French design house too due to its incorporation of the 'cannage' design. Indeed, 'cannage' was the name given to the wickerwork on the Napoleon II style gilded chairs that Mr Dior invited guests to sit upon during his Haute Couture fashion shows. These chairs became a key symbol of Dior's timeless elegance and the 'cannage' motif has been incorporated in many of the houses' designs - handbags, makeup and, as seen here, jewellery. Dior has recently introduced the 'cannage' work into its fine jewellery collections designed by Victoire de Castellane. This bracelet presents an affordable opportunity to wear such iconic design. 

Wear it With...

This bracelet is a wardrobe essential - it will enable you to add Dior's elegance and cool to any look. Pair it with a softly tailored trouser suit by day for work and wear it with a cocktail dress in neutral tones for evening.
