The Details...

These large, gold plated, circular earrings feature an embossed baroque style design around their outer edge. In the centre of the earrings is a faux pearl. The faux pearl is made in a way traditional to the house of Chanel - glass coated in real pearl dust. Each earring is 3cm in diameter. The earrings are signed - each one is stamped 'CHANEL' 'MADE IN FRANCE' and features a copyright symbol and the interlocking 'C' logo on the reverse. 

They also come with some of their original packaging - a black, hinged box with 'CHANEL' on the outside and 'CHANEL, PARIS' on the inside, printed onto white, padded satin. To learn more about Chanel jewellery, visit our 'Designers' section.

All of our clip earrings are provided with removable pads for extra comfort. 

A Short History...

These earrings are emblematic of the of the craze for gold tone, large scale pieces that perpetuated throughout the Eighties. Victoire de Castellane was particularly famed for designing midas touched jewellery for the house of Chanel. Her bold creations sprung forth from the pages of Vogue on the likes of Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell. It is easy to imagine such supermodels wearing these Chanel earrings, as they stare powerfully from a magazine spread wearing leather and sharp shoulders. Whilst adhering to the quintessentially Eighties taste for gold, De Castellane was also known for staying true to the heritage of Chanel too. Wherever it was complimentary, she would include Coco's favourite material of pearls, the houses' famed Gripoix glass or the whimsical touches, that Karl Largerfeld and Coco adored.
