The Details...

This gold plated brooch features three diamond shaped panels detailed with the famous Chanel Matelass√© design. It fastens with a traditional safety clasp and the fastening pin is attached to the reverse of the brooch with a round hinge. The brooch measures 7.5cm x 3.5cm. The brooch is signed - the reverse features an oval shaped, gold-plated cartouche stamped with 'CHANEL', 'MADE IN FRANCE', a copyright symbol and the Chanel logo. The reverse of the brooch is also stamped with an authentication code at its base. The brooch comes with its original Chanel box too. 

A Short History...

Created in 1955, the house of Chanel's iconic 2.55 handbag features a quilted pattern using stitched rhombuses that is known as the Matelass√© design. Since its creation by Coco Chanel the Matelass√© has been incorporated into so many items produced by the brand in various guises. Here, the rhombus quilting is a stylish design detail on a brooch.
